hello guys! am about to open a photo studio but my capital is too limited. Then could you help me in any way? Answered

Your help can be opinions about how to handle and manage studio business, how to get cheap accessories (home made) like studio lights, backdrops, soft box etc. Also you can help by giving some kind of direction, where to get more skills or if you got some you can share with me. Also i would be much grad if you could give some retouching software URL`s or even just mention thr names. Hoping from you.

What happened to the Instructable Photo Editor?

When adding photos to an Instructable the photo has a "view/edit" link on the imported photo.  Clicking it used to take you to a photo editor to crop, adjust, color correct annotate, etc.  Now the link only lets you view the photo. Has the photo editor gone away or is it located somewhere else.  It was so  nice to be able to edit photos via the Instructable website as needed.   Thanks,

About the last step before publishing a project is to pick the main photo you want used with the project.  Is there a way to change that photo later?

Main photo being cropped on 'explore' pages.

  The main photo of an Instructable is being cropped by a few percent at the edges on the 'explore' pages.  The images are fine when the Instructable is clicked to view it, but for myself and others who take photos to fill the whole frame it is annoying to have the edges of the 'content' chopped off.  (I always intend to take a more loosely framed photo as the title image but never seem to remember.) Is this a bug in the image handling or is it done by intent? Edit : I've just realised what's happening - It's cropping to make a square aspect ratio for the thumbnails. Looks like I'll have to compose the photo accordingly.

On instructables photos, how does one add the rectangles that show text on a mouse over?

On many instructables photos, there are one or more rectangles embedded in the image. When mousing over the rectangle, text appears that explains that part of the overall image. How can I create this effect on my images?

Photo orientation bug ?

Hello, I know that this sounds unlikely but if I re-orientate a photograph in Preview on my Mac and then put it in an Instructable, it reverts to the original orientation. This has only been the case on my current Instructable. Has anyone else found this to be so ? Also I still cannot reply to comments left on my current Instructable. Thank you.

Request for feature- Photos in PM's

I think it would be really nice if You could send images to other people via PM. This would be useful if you want to show a project to one or 2 people, and dont want others to see until its posted. There has been many a time where a lot didnt get done for us because we couldnt PM images. Also, looking in the community blog forum, it would really many people.

Is there an easy way to turn a photo 'ible into a step by step 'ible?

Hi folks. I have made some alterations & additions to my workshop I want to add either to my "My Little Workshop/Utility Room/Cathouse." 'ible or my "Using recycled or salvaged timber" 'ible, possibly both.  Is there an easy way to change it from a photo 'ible to a step by step? I did want to add it in last night but life got in the way as usual & by the time I got started it was quite late & to tell the truth I was too tired to really search around the options, I thought I would try to save a bit of time & ask here before I try again this evening.

Any ideas on how to make this giant photo frame?

Hi! I'm slightly obsessed with this giant photo frame (see attached). I'm pretty sure it's just a concept / one-off, and it's not something I'd be able to afford anyways, so I'm considering how to DIY it. I've got some good ideas for the outer frame rim, but I can't come up with a way to make the huge back plate and matt that would look nice and not be too heavy. For the backplate I could probably use posterboard or 3mm MDF, but I'm not sure of how to join two or more sheets together that won't significantly add to the weight. At this size there will also be some serious stability issues - it'll need some sort of cross bracing. For the matt, I think I could maybe just use nice cardboard and cut the picture holes by hand, carefully lining up adjacent sheets. Proper matt material I think would be way too expensive for something that size. Any ideas? Thanks Alex

What qualifies as an Instructable?

Greetings, I would like to know what qualifies as an Instructable? What is the definition of an Instructable? I has assumed that an Instructable had to be instructive and not just a picture of something already completed. Regardless of people voicing opposition in the comments that it is not an Instructable, the following post has remained: In response to an email I sent Eric J. Wilhelm replied saying "We have been specifically encouraging authors to share items they have made but did not document the full step-by-step process in our Photo Instructables." I have not seen that. Could you please link where you encourage that? Where you say pictures showing only a completed object qualify as an Instructable? Must an Instructable be intructive or not? If not, then I will be posting a only just pictures of completed objects as Instuctables to be sure special treatment is not being given. Thanks

Alternative Photography Project

I am currently in the Advanced Photography class at my high school. One of the assigned projects is simply titled "Alternative Photographic Technique." Basically, we have to create an image without using 35mm film (not digital, either). The specific techniques that he recommends are:Photogram-arranging objects directly on the photo paper, without using a camera at allHolga- The teacher has a few Holga cameras with 120 film for class use to take artistically lousy imagesPinhole Camera- If you don't know what this is, you probably can't answer my question anyway.Cyanotype- a special emulsion is painted on watercolor paper, then exposed in sunlight under a large transparency. Search "cyanotype" to see what it is.Polaroid image transfer- an image taken with a Polaroid Two-Step camera is transferred from the film to watercolor paper-looks cool, but expensiveCan anyone suggest other interesting ideas? I'd like to keep it simple and inexpensive, and I have to have 8"x10" total printed image.Weissensteinburg? Are you there?Edit 5-12-08: I have printed some 5x7s with my cool new technique. I matted them today, and I turn them in on Thursday.
