  1. Cameras are so smart now! They can recognize faces and won't take the picture if a person's eyes are closed.
  2. Thank you, Angie! Good tip about camera phones and how "it’s not easy to balance the phone, hold other items, then press the shutter button in the middle of your screen to take the picture". My phone takes the picture when it hears the word "cheese". I love it! When I used to tap the screen, I would end up with camera shake.
  3. Yes, the site has been revamped. Go to your profile, click the See My Activities button. On the left side of the screen, lower down, you will see a link to your gallery images. Here are April's instructions for uploading to a gallery:
  4. You're welcome, Gayle. Which journal collections are you looking at?
  5. If all the photos are of one person, they certainly can go on one page. Caption each photo with date and event details.
  6. If I were to print a layout, I would do as Anne-Marie suggests. I would keep the photos small and have six or more of those phone pics on the page.
  7. People that print photos can appreciate the difference a good camera makes!
  8. Yes, photos from the same camera will yield the same quality. A good camera lens can capture detail whereas a so-so lens will muddy the details. Example:
  9. Yes, her face is blurry. It isn't a really good quality camera lens that captured the picture. Really not much you can do.
  10. Sorry, Terry, I just edited my reply.
  11. OK, I inspected the photo at its original high res. Unfortunately, it appears that the camera lens isn't the best, as her face is blurry. Was it a phone camera?
  12. I've only done it once myself with a wide panoramic photo. I found it tricky because I had to guess how much of the photo might get "lost" in the binding since it wasn't a lay-flat style book. To compensate, I didn't just slice the photo in half, but also duplicated a vertical bit that would end up in the binding. If you have a really great super-wide photo, it looks awesome all on its own as a "2-page spread".
  13. I thought you meant that the left half of each page is the left side of the book, i.e. the book binding (fold) occurs in the middle of the page, like how I split the picture here: But as you aren't splitting the page into two halves, I really like the Sledding Fun page with more photo! There's a design principle about thirds that gives a better overall composition.
  14. Here, the fold will go through a person, but not the face, so I think it will look fine.
  15. Quick example: I like this balance of paper to photo, as long as the fold does not go through a person.
