Posts I've Made
Posted 5 Feb 2013I'm a newbie at this business of emailing large photo files, so perhaps the answer to the dilemma is obvious to everyone else, but I need help (and I need it before the Feb 8th deadline!!:osrc="http://ceramicartsdaily.org/community/public/style_emoticons/default/ohmy.gif"> ). I'm trying to send images to a Lark Books Call for Entries, and the guidelines indicate that TIF files are highly preferred. Those files are large, 10-50 MBs, and my email program will not accomodate sending such a large file. How would you satisfy the requirements below, given my email problem? That's the most important issue, but one additional item has me stumped. It states "Do not create shadows. We will determine if shadows are needed and add them as necessary". What?? Are they asking for photos flooded with an excess of light, with no shadows produced by careful lighting to give the item dimension???
Digital Image Submission Guidelines
• Digital photographs should be taken at the camera’s highest resolution, at its best quality setting.
• TIFs or JPGs are acceptable. TIF files are highly preferred.
• Do not compress files.
• Digital images must be a minimum of 4.667 x 6 inches (1400 x 1800 pixels) at 300 PPI. The maximum image size we accept is 9.5 x 12 inches (2850 x 3600 pixels) at 300 PPI.
• Digital images must be between 1 and 5 MBs (JPG) or 10 and 50 MBs (TIFs).
• Files must be in RGB format.
• Files should be 8 bit, not 16 bit.
• If it is necessary to develop digital negatives (raw files), use Adobe RGB 1998 color space.
• Color correction and retouching images is acceptable, but should only be done by professionals who specialize in digital images.
• Do not silhouette (remove the background from) your image. We will determine if this is needed and have our digital team silhouette images as necessary.
• Do not create shadows. We will determine if shadows are needed and have them added as necessary.
I appreciate any suggestions!
I'm shocked with all the requirements, I guess they get so many entries that they can actually ask for that much.
One way to send large files is using Dropbox or any other free online file sharing.
About the shadows if you don't mind you can put a sample picture here in the forum and we can help you.
Posted 14 Oct 2012The kiln must be on a concrete or tile floor, linoleum is flammable and you don't want to expose it to the kiln heat
But if you are talking about just the production area, it's fine. I have cement floors but for the sitting/standing area I have rubber matts so my back doesn't suffer and they are easy to clean.
Posted 14 Oct 2012For Inventory I use Art archive, it's pretty easy to use, visual, it keeps record of where your pieces are, prices, commissions, galleries and even prints labels, this is the Link
I wish I can have Access on my Mac but that's not possible... Excel works but you have to set up the calculations you are going to need.
Posted 14 Oct 2012I have an advertising and marketing college degree I got back in my country but after moving to the US, I found myself confused about the market. I read many books and the only one I really like is "I'd Rather be in the studio" by Alyson Stanfield. I also read her blog and follow her on facebook. I think that book is so comprehensive of what you need to do you'll be busy for a while.
This is her blog if you want to take a look.
Posted 27 Sep 2012Hi Mea,
I see, but it's not easy to figure out at first and If I have a questions about it I don't like to make a post in random places, you know what I mean?
for example I opened my email this morning and I had a notification of a post I never subscribed to and didn't get a notification of your reply.
I just clicked watch this topic, I hope it will work.
Maybe I'm so used to other forums, I just want to make this one easier to use.
