Photo Tips for HomegrownHandmade website!
|Photos will play a big part in making this a great website. Please use the suggestions below to help you make appropriate photo choices and submit them correctly.|
|Choosing a Good Photo|
The image you choose will be small on the web site, so pick a photo with a large subject, if possible. Example: A building on a broad landscape may not show up well…or at all…when reduced to the necessary size (see example below). A closer shot would work better. Close-ups of art objects, farm produce, people, architectural features, natural subjects, etc. may be good choices. Shots of crowds or groups may work, in some cases. Just imagine your photo or image about the size of the sample images shown and use your own judgment as to whether yours would work. To make photos look best, we need to start with a larger photo and edit it down.
Slides and hard copies of photos will not be returned, so please make sure you have a copy for yourself!
Images to Us
If possible, please email your photo email@example.com. The subject line should include HomegrownHandmade photo (to prevent it from being deleted as junk mail!) and you MUST include your site's name (as it will appear) and the county where it is located in the first part of the email! Otherwise, we will not know how to link your photo with your site information in the database.
Electronic images should be sent in .jpg format. You can send the raw photo, as it comes out of your camera. We would rather have a large photo to crop and edit. If you are scanning a photo, set the dpi at 150 and keep at the original size if the photo is no larger than 4 x 6 inches.
If you are sending a file you have taken with a digital camera, just send the original file, as is.
If you have questions about how to send digital images, please send an email or call 252-792-5495. DO NOT hesitate to ask any question you may have about this web site. Really!
Thanks and Good Luck!
