    What, no icecream?

    On a more serious note, good job - definately of the standard we've come to expect from you now!

    Thought of the moment ...

    One thing that might give your images a "touch more magic" is encapsulating them in some kind of boarder, just to compliment the image and help isolate it from the rest of the page.

    Nice one Alis,

    Have you tried it rotated 90 degrees clockwise?

    btw, I think Colin's idea is bordering on excellent, especially for shots like this where the composition doesn't impart any natural framing effect.

    Cheers,

    Thanks, Colin and Dave.

    It is very interesting, just this morning, I was reading the Skin book by Varis, you (Colin) recommended a while ago. Toward the end it has a section on adding border to the pictures. Now I have to go back and read it more carefully. But I have been thinking about it. Since I print these (some of them) and rotate them through a frame on my desk (some of them again!) and in a digital frame, I did not think of this but for posting them online you are right.

    The question is how do you guys automate this action?

    I don't ... I just "do it by hand" each time (since for me the text changes each time). If your looking to add to your book collection, check out "Photoshop Finishing Touches" by Dave Cross.

    Am I correct when I am thinking you are referring to some kind of frame like I usually do ?

    Yes. And by the way, you were the inspiration for me starting to do the same!

    Yeeehhh !!!
    LOL LOL
    I have been studying a way to make all the canvas the same size. I just got it !
    Now - with more work yes - all my canvas will have the same size regardless the size of the crop.
    An improvement.

    But only later on I will work more on this.
    Now am I going to rest for a while because I have been polishing my wife's car - small one - with a nanotechnologies cream. Some BMW stuff, exquisite and good as usual.

    I just click on Image -> Image Size - make sure that "Resample Image" is checked, and then just key in the pixel dimensions that I like (usually 1024 x 512) - easy
