the pictures aren't as sharp as I'd put in the print catalog. You see I have to
cut back their files sizes or this page would never load (especially if you're
on a dial up modem).
The technical side is that I'm
shooting JPEGS at 80-100 percent quality and I cut them back to 50-60% and pretty
much limit them to 600 pixels in width or less so that they'll fit on your monitor
and load reasonably fast. In short, each picture is about 450,000 bytes when I
shoot it and 20-40,000 bytes here on the page. A picture for the catalog is about
I've created this page using
separate tables for each picture so that you don't have to wait for everything
to load in order to start looking. The picture captions will display first and
then the pictures (usually starting at the top, but not always due to the way
your computer interprets the web).
HERE'S THE BOTTOM LINE. I don't feel you can really know about a product
unless the pictures are big and clear enough for you to really see (almost touch).
Then you'll know what you're getting. So in my print catalogs the pictures can
be sharper, but on the web I can show you a lot more angles, sides and parts of
each product. I hope this helps. If
I ever forget to show you some part of the product that you want to see, Email
me at DrewKaplan@DAK.com and I'll do my
best to add it to the page quickly.
