Online Photo Tips
Tip #1: Resist the urge to
upload every image on your digital camera card to
your online photo site, especially if you’re
going to send invitations to friends and family to
view the pictures. Getting a message that 125
pictures are ready to be viewed can overwhelm even
the most devoted grandmother! Instead, select
your favorites, create some variety by choosing different
pictures highlighting different events, and then
send an invitation to those closest to you.
Tip #2: Don’t forget
to size down the images if you’re sending them
as an email attachment (unless the person receiving
the images intends to print them). Many programs
will automatically re-size a high resolution picture
for email. You can also use Microsoft’s
Image Resizer, a free tool that will resize a picture
with a simple mouse click.
Tip #3: Many of your favorite
retailers now offer ‘Print 2 Store’ services
where you can upload an order from home and then
pick up your print order in the store at your convenience. Check
with some of your favorite retailers to see if this
service is available and try a few to see which provides
the best service. Many offer free prints for
first-time customers, so this can help you best decide
which company deserves your business.
