Photo layout in
Here's a few basic guidelines
about photos in articles that I live by and I would like you to to consider when putting
together your article.
- Articles must start with
a large photo that is basically your best photo and shows the whole
model. The file name for this photo will be 01.jpg
- As a general rule, you can
only have 2 full size photos in your article. If you have a very large
article with lots of "how-to" info etc about building your
model...then 3 full size photos is possible. All other photos will
have to be the smaller click-able "thumbnail photos". I must
limit the number of full size photos in the article, so the article will
open reasonably quickly for folks with the slower modem
- The second full sized photo in
your article will be the second best photo you have of your model.
Name this photo 02.jpg
This can be a close-up
photo or a photo of the model from a different angle from photo 01.jpg
- Do not crop or resize your
photos. I will tend to all that for you. I also digitally edit
photos if necessary to remove scan lines and flaws in the background of your
photos that can distract the viewers eye from the center piece of the photo
(which is your model).
- All other photos should be
04.jpg 05.jpg 06.jpg
etc etc. This will help me load your pictures quicker. Long text
file names for photos take more time to correctly load into an article.
All images should be in jpg
format......most computers are set up not to show the jpg
image file extension as you
can see in the image to the right. the image file name extension is shown
in the red circle.
