A Shoutout: Make Your Instructables Better

Just want to say something: PEOPLE NEED TO USE MACRO MODE ON THEIR CAMERAS. Just press the button that looks like a flower. It lets you take macros, which are for taking close up pictures. You have no idea how many instructables there are out there with incredibly blurry pictures.

I used to have trouble focussing with Macro mode (guyfrom7up - it's a flower on all makes of camera), especially if the object has low contrast, or I'm trying to take narrow subjects. Then I found a trick. > Hold a piece of paper printed with black-and-white squares beside the object. > Focus on the paper (with most cameras, this means pressing the trigger half-way and then holding it) > Turn the camera to the intended subject, remove the paper, and press the trigger all the way home.
You should do a short i'ble on that trick.

Or maybe just a forum topic or slideshow. It's a bit too basic for a whole 'ible.
By "short ible", a slideshow is what I meant; should've clarified that, thanks.

Well, I'm getting into this german thing. "Danke" means "thank you," and I thought it would go well with my username, which also is german. "Uber" means "ultra," so... And, you just used a different language in your reply, so now we're like, all over the world. Yay!
Danke is thank you; intimate. That is, you do not reply Danke to everyone, to the main populace you would say: Danke schÖhn (shon with the o being an O umlaut )

Ah, 'tis true, hovever, literally translated, "danke schöhn" means "thank you, pretty," and I decided against it for two reasons. One being if he plugged it into an online translator, he may be kinda confused, and two, because he did not posta picture. Eh?
Ok, I was just being a purest LOL
