And, I need your help for choosing the best picture for my Instructable

If you're interested, This Instructable is going to be on how-to-make a: 200 WATT Variable Spectrum LED Light Panel, Which I will use for taking pictures for my 'Ibles.

I often have pictures upload sideways or even upside down. I don't know why they do that but the way to fix them fast is to use the free editor that is included in the instructable creator that you use to make a new instructable. It has a place that rotates the images. Just remember to save them after you are done. They auto update with the corrected picture shortly after you close the editor.

The third picture is by far the best, with the un-cluttered background, but you need to turn it the right way up and get rid of the date.

Thanks Kiteman,

I was trying to decide between the first picture and the third, I like the first one because I just love that the background is out of focus, It just hypnotizes me!

I like the third picture because it's filmed on a flat background, The reason I'm saying flat background is because it isn't really "white".

In the Instructable, the picture is the right way up, I just wasn't able to upload it right side up to this.

I will try to find away to cancel the date on my camera for future pictures (I've done a mental reminder to do that a long time already) The date itself won't be visible in the picture of the 'Ible (Is there a name for this?) But if if will be I'll use the "Pxlr Editor" and blur it out.

Thanks,

Yonatan

The first one has artistic merit, but thumbnails (the word you were looking for) need to be clear an uncluttered to stand out in people's feeds.

It's a date stamp. (In answer to your question in your reply below).

I would either re-soot the 1st or 3rd. Remove the date stamp from both. For the first one I'd try to get it up higher so the background is just the distant buildings. The railing makes it cluttered. For the third one try to get the shot without the hand holding it. Just on the ground or a table will do.
