Photo sizes feedback wanted at my Website - Page 2

post #16 of 23
Photoshop Elements has an "auto fix" tool that will get you most of the way there. Tweaking the Levels feature to match your photo's black point, white point, and midtone with the displayed histogram should be enough to do the rest.

The colour photos are much nicer.   The black & white is very drab and the cakes don't look as beautiful.

 

Your cakes are gorgeous.  Go colour.  The colour photos aren't bad at all.

I vote for larger photos and color. Your flickr pics are beautiful!

 

I've used PicMonkey to edit photos and I love it.

Stiches, if you're on Wordpress then I totally recommend the plugin NextGEN. I use it on my site and you can configure the thumbnail sizes and get the most out of the space on your site. Plus you can do automatic watermarks and add titles/descriptions/tags/alt descriptions and its very easy to use.

Stitches,

 

I used Photoshop and, as Jason said, it is the same in Photoshop Elements. When I hit Ctrl+L (for levels), the bell curve pops up and you can "sharpen" by adjusting light, dark, and midtones. I've had Photoshop for quite a while, so that's what I know.

As others have mentioned, there are other programs (free ones) that will do similar things.

There. Their. They're not the same.

 

I hope I die before "your" becomes the official contraction of "you are."

Your work is beautiful. You should use color pictures and a gallery. Think towards the future and adding more pictures, a gallery would be better.

Wow, thanks for the feed back, it really does help to know other peoples opinions. I guess I'm going to be spending alot more time photo editing (man this can be time consuming, my hubby already thinks I live on the computer).

I love NextGEN. I update the blog for our company site and we use Wordpress. This plugin is awesome. The watermark feature is so quick and easy to use.
