    How can clients download their own photos?

    I do have a website hosted by Yahoo. It is very reliable and fast. BUTTTT, in the past when I've put photos up it seems to load lots of large photos quite slowly online. And it takes me forever to load them through my software to get them published. I'd rather make the CD and drive it...

    How can clients download their own photos?

    Hello! I am a doula. At this point in my photography career I take photos from my D80 at births and give them away for free afterward. Up to this point I've been burning photos to CD and giving them to clients when I see them next. But most people want photos ASAP. I'd like to get away from...

    Elements and iphoto

    So - also!! When I edit the photos in photoshop and save them ELSEWHERE on the computer instead of telling them to save in the iphoto folder, things become weirder. If I go to the location in which I saved the edited file I can see that the thumbnail is the EDITED version of the photo...

    Elements and iphoto

    Hello! I'm a new mac user and a new iphoto user. I'm trying to keep photos catalogued in iphoto but I edit a lot and am having a bit of trouble between photoshop elements and iphoto. I'm trying to do something basic. Edit a photo in photoshop, save it and have the edited version appear in...

    Backup for Photos

    What is the best way to backup digital photos? I've heard recently that CD's degrade photos over time. Upload to a paid storage website? Buy a zip drive? How do you do it? THANKS!

    Funny/Sad Story

    I've tried going to Ritz camera local and for one they will try to sell you anything not really the best thing. And they only want to talk to you if you are interested in these big ticket items. And I tried asking how much their sb-600 was and when they told me 229.00 I just walked out. It is...

    What kind of Tripod?

    I'm trying to look these over but honestly they seem a little tall. I mainly want something to steady my shot for blurry shake issues when I'm not using flash. And I will try to stay away from flash most of the time so I don't disturb Mom/Doctors. I just want a tripod/monopod to set on an end...

    What kind of Tripod?

    At BHPhoto monopods are anywhere from $15 to $400. What special features should I be looking for? Can I get something reasonable for $60 or less or should I just not bother at this point to look if I can't spend more?

    What kind of Tripod?

    I'm shooting with a D80, I'm not sure what 6 inch things with springy legs are......is that what you call a small tripod? Yes, birth photography, I'm currently a doula and would like to take some shots in the room. When I think I'm good enough I would do some births just for photography alone...

    What kind of Tripod?

    I need a tripod for indoor shooting such as in hospital rooms (for birth photography). I'm looking for something small that I can lean on furniture like a tabletop tripod. But I've never shopped tripods before and don't know what I'm looking for. The tabletops don't seem too expensive and if...

    Capture NX Help

    See this thread titled PHOTE EDITING SOFTWARE http://www.thephotoforum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=97187&highlight=editing+software where I asked for advice...... Jerry, why did you say nothing would serve me better than NX and now you say it isn't an editing software. CS3 was out. There is...

    Capture NX Help

    Can an NX user please tell me how to edit a background, like make a background completely black or white?? I've seen this done in Photoshop. It takes 30 seconds. The lasso tool is used and the program is intuitive at selecting the subject, like the "child" in the picture for instance and you...

    How would you fix this pic?

    If you are familiar with NX maybe you know how to do this thing with backgrounds then?! A little help instead of telling me that I wasted $130 on NX would be appreciated. :-)

    How would you fix this pic?

    That is so awesome. I will have to look at it when my kids give me 2 seconds. Just from reading your post I do have a lasso tool but I'm bad at using it I guess because what I select is just boxes right now. I'm not sure how to tell it to select a background vs. a subject. I'll work on it...

    How would you fix this pic?

    OK, Remember I'm new. YOU HAVE TO TELL ME HOW YOU DID THE BLACK BACKGROUND!! I was wondering how to insert backgrounds like that. I think I asked that question on here once and someone told me it couldn't be done.....how do you do that? Does it work for white too? Just let me know the name...

    How would you fix this pic?

    I never noticed the lights being too much. I thought they looked good. Are they really distracting? We had a pic done at Babies R Us of my older son his first Christmas - shown below. You'll see his hat is kind of cut off here too. I thought the two pics looked alike....so that is what drew...

    How would you fix this pic?

    OK, I touched up a bit. Tried to take advice I could control. None of this pic was a crop and I don't want to re-shoot. We had about three photo shoots with my little man today, inside, outside and all. He was a monster....horrible photo cooperater :-) It was hard to get a smile on his...

    How would you fix this pic?

    Nice! Howdo I do it? It looks like you sharpened it some but when I sharpen in NX it doesn't come that clean. And how do you cover blemishes? Or at least what tool are you using so I can look for that tool in my software. THANKS, Alicia

    How would you fix this pic?

    I think this is the one I'm using for the x-mas pics this year. I have Capture NX but am new to using it as well as photography. I would love opinions on this pic. Does it look professional at all or just ordinary? Anyone know how to cover blemishes like the one below his lip in NX? I've...
