    Default Photo Blogs...

    Who uses one & which one do you use? Want to share your link???



    I've just discovered aminus3 which looks very cool so I'm going to try that. Mostly just to post my better shots to get together for my portfolio for *one day* when I get my business going.

    Sarah - I just use blog spot for my photog blog. It's simple enough for me to navigate, and I dont need to customize it too much as it's linked through my website.

    I would love to see some of your work too


    btw - congrats on your little Princess! Yes I have been AWOL for a while...LOL

    Hi, Im a professional photographer, and have just bought a new blog, for about $200 - but before that i had a google blogger blog - which was great, except i wanted to display larger blogs!

    Im about 20 weeks pregnant at the moment, and after bubs comes next year, this will be my fulltime business.

    Lauren.

    HI'all,
    After stalkin' this post I decided to set up a photoblog for my paintings. You can set up your page preferences, choosing background colours etc, and there are no really visible ads - except - for a small reference to an ebay auction - which confused my viewers because you can't really see the picture of the item, just the price - so they thought that was how much I was asking for my work. All in all, it is a pretty easy and maintenance free sight to set up your site.
    Hope this helps!

    Hey there sarah! I just stumbled across this as I am a tog. Blogger is great and I do use that but I get some wonderful lady from the us to do my design.. cheap as $60.00 and it is all custom done. just google orange gecko designs. Her name is trish.

    Most people will rip you off left right and center but she has been the only one I have found to be honest and has some great stuff. (she does it all for you.. custom to what you want)

    If you need to know anything else feel free to send me a pm

    Good luck!


    btw she also does logos and stuff for reasonable prices : )

    Please tell her that barefoot fotos tams sent you.

    Thanks.

    ok so for big photos in blog spot i will just copy an email i got here explaining it i hope this is ok and allowed..

    this is all in the html tabbefore publishing this also must be done to evey picture on every post its not a one time thing...

    Kay so when you upload an image on to blogger it looks like this:

    <a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_jh_B-b1o1zg/SWhJSiiop1I/AAAAAAAAA-Q/-39hH57eApI/s1600-h/Day+71.jpg"><img style="display:block; margin:0px auto 10px; text-align:center;cursorointer; cursor:hand;width: 400px; height: 286px;" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_jh_B-b1o1zg/SWhJSiiop1I/AAAAAAAAA-Q/-39hH57eApI/s400/Day+71.jpg" border="0" alt=""id="BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5289558345205196626" /></a>

    what you are going to do is delete this part...width: 400px; height: 286px; (in bold above) make sure you leave in the parenthesis but delete the semi colon.

    so it will look like this....

    <a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_jh_B-b1o1zg/SWhJSiiop1I/AAAAAAAAA-Q/-39hH57eApI/s1600-h/Day+71.jpg"><img style="display:block; margin:0px auto 10px; text-align:center;cursorointer; cursor:hand;" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_jh_B-b1o1zg/SWhJSiiop1I/AAAAAAAAA-Q/-39hH57eApI/s800/Day+71.jpg" border="0" alt=""id="BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5289558345205196626" /></a>

    Then you are going to change the s400 to s800, (in bold above).

    thats it !!
