Sometimes however hard you try things just don’t go as planned and you have to fix corrupt images. Internet connections can drop because of interference from nearby electrical gadgets that you have no control over, and power can fail at the most inconvenient time or you could be uploading on-the-go and simply loose connectivity. It’s frustrating, however if your internet connection drops when you are uploading a large file collection the problems are compounded. You might not know which images have uploaded and which files were still in the queue, and sorting that sort of mess out can be very time consuming. So here’s a trick to vastly ease the pain.
For a super easy display of images on a web page, use the scrolling folio page. Whether it be a portfolio, event, sample images for a client or even product photos, this page type has always been great for SEO but also has the benefit of offering sales options from each image if required. Theimagefile has just released some updates to this page type which now makes it even better and easier to use. (more…)
We have updated our control panel to give quick and easy access to the FTP bulk import folder without needing to go to the My Images page. Within the fly-out menu you can now follow “Tools -> My FTP Details -> FTP Bulk Import Folder”.
The browser title appears at the very top of the browser window. It is the most important words for indexing your website page by the search engines, even though it is not displayed on the page. The search engines see this sentence and display it as the title link in the search results page (the bit that links to your site) just above the meta description.
It’s a shame that just last week we had two separate cases regarding rescuing wedding images…
Whilst talking to one bride, she regretfully acknowledged that the photographs were the only keepsake that she will have to enjoy in years to come. Yes, she had heard that the cake is eaten, the band fall silent, the flowers droop and the dress becomes… tighter…however, she still ignored the professional photographer’s attempts to prevent the pending calamity and in an attempt to save money booked Uncle Keith, a keen amateur, to replace the professional photographer.
All images were captured as small jpegs.
The bride and groom do now at least have a somewhat downsized wedding album, but with the costs for necessary digital work, scanning, printing and manipulation, the (not so happy) couple have only made a saving of just over eighty-six pounds compared to what they would have paid for the stress-free services of the originally booked professional.
It’s sad that so many major once-in-a-lifetime events are going to be lost for future generations because of similar circumstances.
