Todays Tip – BACK UP it’s a must
WHY BACK UP IS A MUST?
Back is not just for professional photographers its for every digital camera user/owner. With digital cameras been the norm these days people don’t need to go to the print lab to get the photos developed to see them, just upload onto their computer and can view nearly instantly. This is great in every way, fast easy to use, less costs involved to view images and more control over the editing to.
But my TIP is to back up your photos. Its a pain in the bum but take the few mins to burn the photos you just uploaded to your PC onto a Disc (I recommend a DVD bigger capacity) If your computer crashes, breaks or even stolen all those wonderful photos not to mention the memories captured will be gone forever. But if you back up our photos on a disc you will always have them.
Once again BACK UP YOUR PHOTOS – NOW
Don’t allow it to be to late and never have those amazing photos to look back on.
Todays Tip – Photo Quality
Todays tip – 21st March 2012
What sort of digital camera have you got? Is it a small one or a big DSLR or even your iPhone. Well today I’m talking about thee image size your camera produces when it takes a photo. Your camera is to be told by you what settings to use, how much light its taking in to produce the perfect exposed image,the speed at which the shutter is to open and close at etc. But what you have to realize is that you have to put this info into the camera first it doesn’t just know what you want and takes what you have imagined in your head.
Firstly you need to route through your settings to find your image or picture resolution(picture quality). Most cameras today have settings to change the different quality/image sizes. When you select a lower quality you will get to take more photos, but in-fact what happens then is you go to print that amazing photo you took of your granny who has passed away and turns out the quality you took the photo at was to ”low” to get your photograph blown up and printed.
So by lowering your image quality you’re lowering your chances of printing a good quality photo when comes to printing. My advice would be to put your image quality to the ”biggest size” and buy either a second memory card or buy a bigger memory card. This may seem like your wasting money on silly little cards but in fact you’re not. It’s a small investment if you are anyway serious about your photos.
Tip Summary – Picture quality to the max – Buy a bigger memory card or buy a second one. And never delete photos, keep them it costs nothing and back them up on a DVD or CD.
