Friday 30 September, 2016
Well, here it is the last day of the first month of Spring for 2016. Actually it’s the last night, but I wanted to get this up on air before the first of October, tomorrow. I have my Professional Year class to take tomorrow and there will not be time for me to spend any time on the computer.
I have produced several photography albums over the last few years, and they all have listings on this site. This year I have actually conducted more photography sessions than I have on previous years, and decided several weeks ago that I should start preparing a 2016 album. Things were going well, but the album “grew like topsy”. It was not long before I had an album that would have been close to two hundred pages in length and was about a 760MB upload. And, the page size I am referring to is the same as the previous albums eight and a half inches by eleven inches.
The maximum upload I am allowed for a printed book is 400MB, so I had to do some culling. But, what to cull?
I didn’t! Instead I have published three albums, each of which is way bigger than all of the previous ones I have published. The first has 122 pages, the second 98 and the third 102. Each is however just under the maximum allowable size of 400MB. The first has more white space between the photos.
Instead of publishing them one at a time I decided to get all the preparation done for the three of them and have them all published during the one week.
Each album is available as an eight and a half inch by eleven inch full colour print book or as an e-book. There are a few different choices with the e-book depending upon which reading device you prefer to use.
I shall post the relevant information below.
