Down on the farm. - Portrait of a Young Man as The Artist — LiveJournal
Down on the farm.
I edited about 12 photos for the book thingy. I managed to send one before the inbox to which I was sending went over quota. Oops. :| I followed the specs given. Maybe they were expecting the photos later than this? hehe.

10 of the 12 are, in my opinion, good enough. I'm going to pick 5 that are the best, one including the goats of course. After that, I'll ask if they want any more from me. I'd rather go by the specific guidelines I've seen (send 4 to 5 photos) rather than... well, stuff their inbox to bursting.

Ah well. Still, damn lucky break for me.
I will, of course, keep you all pleasantly informed. :)
Edit: Why is every photographer site written in frickin' FLASH??

a theory re: flash

maybe to prevent image theft? at least without the use of screencapture or something.

Re: a theory re: flash

that's a big reason, yeah. it's either that, or splash big frickin watermarks across your images, and that really tends to take away from the pictures..

Re: a theory re: flash

This makes sense. I suppose I worry less because my images on the web are not printable.

So maybe the better question why are so many bad at programming useful Flash sites? Most of the ones I stumble on are so flashy it detracts from my enjoyment. Simplify!

Your site, for example, is easy and fast. Start clubbing other photography sites, durn it.

Re: a theory re: flash

because they're photographers, not flash developers. *grins*

i like mine, even though it doesn't take into account image theft. i was a bit of a nazi about it for awhile, and will still go after people, but really, the biggest thign i have to worry about is people making icons out of my pictures. if it's a person i photographed, i usually only ask them to ASK first, and a credit.

i mean, in this day and age, even WITH all that flasy goodness, all it takes is a screen capture.

Re: a theory re: flash

Nah. It's easy enough to extract images from a flash file. Flash would be barely more protection than just posting low res jpgs.

You emailed photos? To an account that clearly is not gmail? Do we need to have the "what email is and is not meant for" talk? SFTP server for the win.

I asked them three separate times for how they'd prefer I get them the photos. Each time they said they wanted email, even when I said the files would be around 5megs each AND offered to FTP them somewhere to be downloaded.

I don't think they have a huge set up, just a few people putting the whole book together.
