I wanted a way to insert an ad block into a post, but since the site is static, I wasn’t sure how to do it. I didn’t want to hard code ads into each video/post, and didn’t want to just have one that I stuck into the layout file. I found something on stackoverflow where someone asked about random numbers for listing articles. One of the answers had a bit of code for creating a random quote from a data file which is pretty much the same idea as what I wanted.

We run a Professional Photo Lab (in San Diego) and while we have a very powerful online ordering system called ROES, and also have a Simple File Upload form for our customers to use to order prints, we still end up with some people who just want to email us their images as attachments.

While learning to use Jekyll I am coming up with little Liquid code snippets that do cool things. Many times what i want to do isn’t really the same as what I can find samples of in the Jekyll documentation or on StackOverflow.

Getting your monitor to accurately reflect what a print will look like is one of the most important parts of digital photography.

One of the more complicated issues that come up when dealing with digital photography is color management. Color management is all about trying to get the colors that you want, to display properly on a given device, such as a print made on a desktop printer, or a print you get back from the photo lab, or even just on your monitor. By “devices” we mean anything that can record, display or print an image… so cameras, scanners, printers, monitors, and even papers and inks all need to be “managed” so that you get consistent color. You might find that color to not be what you want it to be, but the first step is to at least be able to consistently get the same color.

The histogram. It seems a little daunting at first, but it’s really quite simple, and extremely useful. The easy explanation: The histogram (as seen below) is simply a bar graph that represents the amount of each shade of gray in an image, with black represented on the left, and white on the right, and each small bar representing one shade of gray.

One question that is bound to come up from time to time is when to use “assign profile” and when to use “convert to profile”. First off, let’s just answer this question outright - Converting is probably what you want to do… you will only use Assign Profile on an untagged image (meaning, there’s no profile embedded in the image file) and you will basically have to guess what color space the image was originally in. Typically, this will be either ProPhoto RGB, Adobe 98, sRGB or maybe even CMYK to name just a few of the more common profiles.

So you renamed all your files with a sequence number, and uploaded them to a gallery (or sent them to a lab for printing)… but they are not displaying in the order you want them to… why is that?
