Sounds sexy doesn’t it!?
Well Aurora V and I talked and screen shared for 3 hours today… photographers can yak. The tangents we got on were all over the place. We could see each other screens so it was fun. She helped me set up Photoshop Configurator, it looks uber cool and I plan on spending some quality time on it soon. We looked at her work flow a bit and the girl is workin hard.
The time just flew by and it was free!
If you haven’t used Skype you really should check it out. As photographers we are chained to our desks, it’s fun to check in and chat with like minded individuals. I’ve been helped so much in the past few months with my blog and website that’s it’s been invaluable. I had 2,000 minutes on my phone a few months ago and I don’t want to repeat it.
I “tried” working on two sites today to lay out books. I have to say I reached dead ends on both. A reader referred me to MPIX and said it was so easy even a caveman could use it… hummm. I’m obviously not evolved enough. Another site was called 300DPI that I happened to stumble on. I could upload them but that was it… dead end. So far the only site I’m able to navigate is Costo… design for the masses. I’m close to ordering one just for the hell of it.
I’m showing a few more collage layouts I’ve been working on. Each page has a full horizontal layout that matches. I guess I don’t need to worry about bleeds or templates. The square format just doesn’t give me the great horizontal bed shots I love. At first I didn’t like the horizontal format, now that’s all I want to do!
I haven’t checked out anyone Else’s books so I don’t know how others are doing them (if anyone is doing it this way I would love to see them). Is this normal?
So I just have to find an book/album company whose website I can navigate!
I know it’s “user” error but what’s a girl to do… I’m going to have to have someone Skype me!
