Week 6 -: Taking and Sharing Pictures

Hello to the world of images and Beauty where a picture says a thousand words 

we have fourteen Composition Tips,Digital Photography Tips and composition tips. We learn also        about exposure triangle and most important thing is how to photograph almost all kinds of subjects. moving to the Commons:Image guidelines we learn about quality images and images guid lines. So,quality images must be the work of Commons contribution and quality image candidates should meet certain requirements. In brief, quality images have to be uploaded to commons by copyright holder under suitable license, must be categorized, have meaningful title and description, as well as the scientific names and no signatures  in image.

As to the quality and featured photographic images, we have certain tips concerning the standard photograpghs. The list includes Image size-JPEG compression-Noise-Exposure-Color-Focus and Depth of Field-Motion Blur-Lighting-Editing-Composition-Distortions and finally Stitched images panoramas where we discuss the following questions: Height-Stitching-Lighting-Vignetting-Camera position-Image alignment and finally the question of Composition. For each qusetion in the above list the common problems are discussed and guide lines as well as solutions are suggested.

 How to edit your digital photos.We have alot of free software located on the Adope Photoshop Express,Gimp,Paint.Net,Picasa and Seashore.I have learned through “Adope Photoshop” how to upload image files, creat an album, edit and share my photos with my friends.Moreover, I have learned how to add to my photos and enjoy my creativity.As for the “GIMP”, the site provides as much information about the GIMP community and related projects as possible. While the “Paint.Net”displays a live thumbnail of the image instead of a text description which makes navigation very simple and fast and uses layers to form the basis for a rich image composition experience.I think I will myself enjoy accubrushing my wall.

The most wonderful site Picasa help in the following :Locate and organise all the photos,Edit and add effects to my photos with a few simple clicks, Share my photos with others through email, prints and web through Google’s photo organiser.

The “Seashore” ,being free image editor for Mac, features gradients, textures and anti-aliasing for both text and brush strokes. It supports multiple layers and alpha channel editing. It is based around the GIMP’s technology and uses the same native file format.

However, unlike the GIMP, Seashore only aims to serve the basic image editing needs of most computer users, not to provide a replacement for professional image editing products.

How to share our photos under open licences, lets have a look at “Wikimedia commons” which discuses this question by categorising the content into main categories like (By Topic, By Location and by Licence) and subcategories like (Articles with permission confirmed, Copyrighted usable, Free licenses.etc)

As for the other site “Flickr”- a popular photo sharing site owned by Yahoo- only part of the images are under Creative Commons licenses. While ” CC Wiki – Featured Image Sites” – make use of  Creative Commons licenses and have  launched a series of projects designed to support and expand the public domain through two categories: Organization and Tools.

I wish that every one will enjoye this journey into the world which tries to capture beauty.

    The normal person would be under the impression that taking the time to gain books on this topic is a waste of time….
