About My Photos

I am back to putting my photos on my website. I just can’t find a good way to share them without losing quality. In this blog I am restrited to 600 pixels wide, which would be ok if I could link to full size but I can’t, not easily anyway. I can post them at 300 px and then link to full size (1000 px) but that just doesn’t please me, too much trouble to view.

On my website I am struggling, as always. I have tried so many ways but end up changing them later. My last idea was to disply them at 300 px linked to full size, and also including a full size page with lots all on one page, but now I am having second thoughts, too much work. My slidshows that I was using for a few tyears were losing so much quality the images looked bad so that had to go. The 600 px just isn’t large enough. So I am going back to just posting recent photos and this time I will just put full web size all on one page.

What I treally need to do is buy a website that specializes in photo galleries, but these are expensive and I don’t make enough on my photos to be worth the expense. So until then, they are back on my website. Here is the latest for May:
