Here are my submissions…and there might be some more:-)
Thanks for that, @lenspirationlydia! Neither of the Windows links from that discussion worked for me. I think one was too old, and the other, I’m sure, would have worked for someone who knew how to ‘work’ it lol! So I looked up online ones, and found one that downsizes. Have I done them too much, or is it a good size for here? Thank you for your help, Lydia!

Wow! Love all of the photos! I didn’t know that it was so much fun putting verses and pictures together! It almost gives the photo a whole different meaning when you have a verse with it.
Great photos @lowrymark!

Glad you found something online to help! If still you want some more in-depth help on the topic, here’s another forum thread from @buddingphotographer you might find helpful. And this video shows how to resize an image using Paint (for Windows). For the forums, we typically recommend downsizing to 1200px on the long edge of your photo.
However, all that being said, the most important part is actually the high-res submission to the link provided on the assignment details page. 🙂 So, as long as you got that submitted, posting on the forum here is secondary – mainly providing a place for us all to comment back and forth with each other like we are now! 🙂
Hope that helps!April 25, 2023 at 3:18 pm #78615Erin PhillipsParticipantApril 25, 2023 at 4:26 pm #78620Blessings CapturedParticipantApril 25, 2023 at 4:28 pm #78623Blessings CapturedParticipantApril 26, 2023 at 10:44 am #78767
I am very open to advice on this since I am new to adding words to pictures.
You did a good job for your first time! Using a photo with some empty space in it for the text is a good place to start, and that’s what you did! One other thing to think about is placing the text in such a way that it is easy to read, as well as artistic. A simple way to begin is by choosing font colors that complement the photo and are in contrast to the background on which they’re placed. So, dark text on light background, light text on dark background. This video might be helpful in giving some more ideas as well. It covers some good design principles!April 26, 2023 at 10:45 am #78768April 26, 2023 at 1:18 pm #78809Amy SagerParticipant

This is Laura and Jemima’s Mum. I really wanted to do a few photos from a mother’s perspective. The photos are just family memories, so no point critiquing them James. And Also, I wasn’t neccessarily the photographer. I sincerely thank both Laura and Jemima for their input in helping me do this! It may be of interest, the little girl helping do the dishes was Jemima, with her twin brother 🙂April 27, 2023 at 3:51 pm #78880Jennifer PotterParticipantApril 27, 2023 at 3:57 pm #78893Jennifer PotterParticipant
