Beautiful Photos Ed!
I enjoyed looking at all of em!
Like one of your followers commented, it makes one homesick, with the desire to go back north and visit. I especially Enjoyed your Watkins Glen images.
Reminds me of home in the Catskills.
When our photographic website is up and running, I would love to exchange links with you, if thats ok.
I'm looking forward to seeing the old photos you have for sale/trade.
Till our next....
Very Best

Me? I personally shoot light, color, a line, texture, where ever it might appear. What ever catches my eye. It may be landscape, structures, seascapes, etc. I shoot b/w, color, digital, and film. I've been shooting since before they put batteries in cameras. I have some vintage pics from the early 1900s that I would like to upload though. I found them in an old album and haven't started to sell them yet. I will at some point.

I'll DEFINATELY Remember NOT to iron while wet. Good Tip Ed! Thanks for that.
If your meaning to watermark Your Uploaded images, easy to do. In your image program, just add text. You can use colors, fonts and sizes. That is how I do it.
Some image programs have a watermark insertion already.
What is the subject matter that you shoot??
Thanks again for the Good Tip Ed

Just remember to keep the iron moving so you don't get picture too hot. I also waited until they were completely dry. Don't try to do that when wet. I would like up upload a few pics that I'm working with if they might be of interest. I am looking into watermarking though. I've been shooting pics too long not to be concerned about ownership.

GREAT!!
Now I know something that I didn't. IRONING... hmmm. Never thought of that.
Will have to try it next time I'm undertaking the project of cleaning snaps.
This is good to know. My way of air drying, is time consuming. Your way, I can iron a bunch at the same time, making the job go quicker.
For the most part though, I try to leave albums complete, especially if they tell a story or have some kind of importance.
If an album is falling apart, or the images are mix matched etc., then I have no problem taking it apart.
Anyhow Ed, THANK YOU for your tip. And I am glad you got it down.

Till our next.............

Great Day!

A picture follow up for you Dennis. You were right about the pictures curling up. I put them face down on the ironing board with a thin smooth cloth and with a med temp iron just pressed them lightly. At first I noticed no difference but once I laid them on my desk, they were flat. The warm temp didn't hurt either the picture or the pencil note on the back.

Comment by Dempsey's CollectAbles 1 second ago Delete Comment GLAD to hear it worked for you Ed. I kind of thought it would.
I'm looking forward to your finding soda images. Could be signs, trucks, machines, crates, bottles, anything that is clearly soda. Any size, any age, any format. Just no copies or reproductions.
If you have specific interests, let me know. I don't sell, I only trade at the moment.
Till our next encounter....
Very Best Ed!

Dennis, thanks again, that worked like a charm!
Comment by Ed Young on March 24, 2010 at 2:57pm
Hi Dennis,
Thank you for the help. I've got a pile of these old pictures, many without any snaps. I'll do as you suggest and let you know how it worked out. And yes, I would be happy to keep an eye out for soda logos and be happy to trade also. I'll look for your new site also.

Ed
