  Dear Stevens, thank you for your interest. First of all, it's not spanish but portuguese version :) and there is a link to the english version in the UK flag. You can visit the english version here: http://www.barrento.com/english.htm

3/15/2004 12:51:25 PM

  I'm sorry - my mistake :) I missed the flag the first time. Now that I've read some of it, I think the stories you have told about some of your shots are very intersting. The explanation about the kestrel missing his nest and grabbing onto the building was interesting. I hope I can do as well when I build my site. Good luck. -K

  Eduardo,

Boa Tarde! I think your photographs and Web design are Excellent! The layout is fairly strait forward and easy to navigate. I really like how you took the time to research your subjects, and that you share this information with your visitors. Makes for a personal connection with each photo (and might make people much more interested in buying it!) If you are intending your work to have a market in North America as well as Europe, then I'd suggest that you add U.S. dollars as well as Euros and include actual measurements of the print sizes in both centimetres and inches. As a Canadian, I would find it a lot easier to figure out how much it would cost me and what frame size I'd need to buy. Don't worry...I don't expect you to include Canadian dollars too! :-)

You've put a lot of work into it and have a great site as a result! btw... I love the Bat photo!!!

Regards,

Eric

  372 .  Pictures submited....deluxe website
I have already sent pictures in. If I set up a deluxe website do I have to reload all my images or will they automatically be uploaded to the website?

3/8/2004 6:01:21 AM

  Yes, unfortunately you do have to upload them again. When you upload your photos to betterphoto or a member gallery, we add a border to them for display purposes. Once you own a deluxe site, you have a choice of many other different border styles. The only way to create the new deluxe version is for you to re-upload the image. Once you own a deluxe site, any uploaded photo is available for both betterphoto and your deluxe site. I hope this helps.

  373 .  What size for website use?
I am considering getting a website with you. I dont have a clue on what size the photo's should be submitted. Also what format is best

2/24/2004 10:23:45 AM

 
Hello Mike,
When trying to correctly size your image for upload, the ppi (pixels per inch) is not as important as the overall pixel dimensions. As long as you measure the overall image dimensions in pixels (instead of inches), you can simply size your image to something close to 500 x 750 pixels.
In Photoshop's Image Size function, for example, you would change the units pull-down menu from inches to pixels. Then, with the Resample checkbox checked, change the shorter dimension (whether it be the width or the height) to 500 pixels.

If you cannot change the units of measurement from inches to pixels, use the following as guidelines:

* With a ppi of 72 ppi, you would want your image to be about 7 inches on the short end.
* With a ppi of 150 ppi, you would want your image to be about 3.5 inches on the short end.
* With a ppi of 300 ppi, you would want your image to be about 1.7 inches on the short end.

For example, a typical 300 ppi image should be around 1.7" x 2.5" before uploading.

For an added touch of sharpness and clarity, it also often helps to slightly apply the Unsharp Mask filter.

Then save either as a TIFF or a high quality / low compression JPEG and upload to the site.

This will result in the best quality uploaded images.

In the 40's 50;s Lampshades using photograph, (scenic, family) were produced. How did they transfer or what did they use for material? I like them better than the computer vellum used on the computer now. Thanks Donna

  376 .  getting rid of images on my website
i dont have a delux website but I have the regular one. I uploaded 2 of the same images and I was just wondering how to delete the doubles. thanks

Im in the same boat. Up until today, I had the functionality to delete unwanted photos... I've noticed there's a look and functionality to the "Categorize Deluxe Web Site Photos" page now. While I love the new layout, I REALLY miss the ability delete unwanted photos. This is particularly important to me now, as I have more then 100 photos I need to replace due to a technical error that was removing the embedded colour file during upload (this problem was on my end). I'm going to need to get rid of the erroneous photos as I upload the corrected ones, but would rather not flood Jim with a ton of e-mails having to have him do it for me. Does anyone know if the removal of the "Delete Altogether" is permanent, or is the just that the new page is under development? Thanks in advance. Regards, Eric.

2/21/2004 9:30:43 AM

  Jennifer-
For a member gallery, click on the "Your Selected Member Gallery Photos" link from your member gallery admin page. Select the "Delete Altogether" radio button next to the ones you want to remove and click the submit button at the bottom.

Eric-
We will add the "Delete Altogether" feature back into the deluxe photo admin page...stay tuned.

Thanks,

  377 .  Deluxe Web Site
Hello all,
I am in the process of setting up my DeluxE web site and would like hints from people that already have one, as to the best way to scan my pics and put them into the site. I have had some trouble (I am sure it is the settings I am using on the scanner) having them appear as they do on the original print. Maybe it is the pixels I am using. Does anyone have some hints for me? I want the pics to look as clear and great on the site as they do for real.
Thanks everyone.

  Hi Pam, and welcome!
I, too shoot all film (slides), and suffered through the arduous task of trying to re-create the same image quality as my originals.
I upgraded my scanning equipment to a Nikon Coolscan 4000... a bit pricey, but well worth the money for the high quality scans it delivers. Are you scanning prints, or negatives? If you are not using a dedicated film scanner, that might be something to consider. There are many brands and levels of quality available to fit most budgets.

  378 .  Protecting a set of photos
I have noticed that you can create multiple set of photos in your web site.

Can you protect with a password any of the sets, so that only the persons or customers you have can access their photos?

1/22/2004 4:19:53 AM

  Hi Javier-

We don't support this right now, although you are not the first person who has asked for it. It is something we're considering as a future enhancement.

  If you get a web site or gallery here on betterphoto that is done for you automatically. All your images will be protected for you.

If you have your own site...I don't know. Anyone?

  There are several ways around this.

One method is to have scripts on the website determine whether the image is being referenced by the web page or by a direct download. This only works some of the time.

Another method is to use Javascript to disable right-clicking... but this only works sometimes and can annoy some people who just wanted to bookmark your site.

Other people use a watermark on the image. This, I think, is the best method. A water mark is just a faint copyright notice placed at key locations on your image so that people can't just download and print out your image without the watermark present.

Other people will slice up their pictures and assemble them on the webpage with a table so that the picture looks whole, but when people try to download the picture to print it, the picture is not printable without alot of assembly work.

Alot of ways to attempt to protect, each to varying levels of success.

Good luck!

Me? I used to use scripts which replaced the image with a big black X. I then switched to watermarking and placing a copyright notice on the image itself.

I am planning on setting up an automatic system to slice and dice my pictures and resize them so that they are hard to reassemble. :)

Good luck!

  Actually with the newer browsers like Mozilla you can download the image just fine. It still gives you the warning to contact betterphoto.com if you want a copy but you still have the options to view the image, copy the image link, save as, etc etc.

  Just for a test, I went into Chris's and Wing's members site and was able to right click and copy photo's to my computer and then print them. I did have a warning about for the copy write notice for the photo's but my windows bar came up to able me to save the photo's.

Something to think about. This was very easy. But the photo's that are posted are in a smaller image size,

Need more protection?

  Really, the only way would be to watermark the images so that even a print will have a visible watermark, making the image unsuitable for reprroduction.

Most images on the site are pretty low-rez. Granted, with some fancy software footwork, you can blow up the small images up to a full 8x10 or more easily, a postcard size.

Having gone down that route, it quickly becomes a job of protecting images instead of making them.

Best bet? Copyright your images and have them registered on file with the Copyright office. When you find an infringer, you can bring charges against them and be done with it.

I've heard of and seen some folk who won't think twice about downloading pics and then redistributing them. Your best bet is to watermark your images with both visible and invisible watermarks when displayed on the web. That way, the image can be traceble and identifiyable.

  No one mentioned the fact that if you can see the image on your monitor (and right-clicking to save it isn't an option), all you have to do is hit the "print screen" key. Doing so copies exactly what you see on your monitor to the clipboard, and then all you have to do is open MS Paint, paste the image there, crop at will, and save it. Therefore, the watermark/copyright route seems the best way to go.

  Additional thought: If you use a film camera, you'll have the negative if you ever need to prove that you did take a certain photograph. I don't know how you'd prove it if the image was shot with a digital camera unless the image was still on the camera's storage media.
