Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

*I have had training on how to use my camera and am confident on my skills there, but all this Photoshop and computer stuff I have had to teach myself and learn as I go. In truth, I know just enough to get myself in trouble :) My old methods of posting on blogger worked nicely, but apparently that has changed and I am not as pleased with my current results (talking about this post). The photos have lost their "punch" somewhere in the translation of me getting them from PS to the web. If anyone has any tips, or know what I can do to make it better, PLEASE let me know! Thank you!

what method are you using to downsize them? Are you doing it in PS or lightroom? Also, are you uploading them to photobucket or blogger directly?

I can't believe how big Sloan darling! Beautiful kids, Daina! Wish we could see them more often. :(

Beautiful Daina!!! Love the backgrounds, the outfits and especially those perfect little faces.

Merry Xmas!

Thanks Niki! Hope you guys had a great Christmas! Your card was adorable!

Kristen- we too wish we could hang out more with Gregson cousins :( Squeeze your cuties for us.

Carson- I do all my editing and processing in Lightroom, then take the image into PS to watermark and save for web & devices. I then take it into Photobucket and upload from there into blogger. In the past they looked great, but this time the coloring was really funky so I re sized the images to 900x600 and they were MUCH better but still not like the originals.

Your kids are just too beautiful for words. Love these pictures -- I can't imagine them being any better.

SO cute Daina! Love it. Newspaper idea is awesome! If you do figure out this problem, please let me know. I am totally in the same boat!
