    Well sports fans, following the requests from many of my fans, I have
    created a new portfolio of some of my favs on the NAPP (National
    Association of Photoshop Professionals) website.
    The NAPP site limits member portfolios to 24 images at a max size of
    500x360, so the images aren't large enough to really appreciate (or
    steal).

    Here's a short link that will take you there:

    Meanwhile, I shall try to clean up some of my pBase galleries,
    separating the wheat from the chaff.

    I think themed portfolios are more effective. Here you are mixing a
    candid of a sports hero with wildlife shots, your typical pet picture, and
    others.

    Is it just me, or does it seem odd that a "Photoshop Prefessionals"
    website would put such non-Photoshop-type restrictions in place?

    Great work Bret. Ol'Crusty gives me the idea for a caption.
    "Want a smooch?"

    Great macro work. Keep at it.

    I think themed portfolios are more effective. Here you are mixing a
    I suppose most portfolios are more targeted to a particular audience
    and theme. I went the other way, trying to show a variety of shots.
    I've always tried to stay away from getting pigeonholed into one
    specific type of photography. Looking through some of the other
    portfolios on that site, I get bored when I see all the pics about
    architecture, weddings, portraits, nature, etc. Maybe that's just me.

    Last night I was looking through some galleries of a fairly well-known
    sports shooter, who occasionally posts here. Most of his non-sports
    shots were pretty weak to say the least.
    I've always considered that one of my photographic strengths is the
    ability to do many types of photos well, including Nature, Landscape,
    Macro, Sports, Wildlife, Pets, etc.
    I haven't done too much Architecture or Portraiture, but the evening is
    still young.

    The NAPP site limits member portfolios to 24 images at a max size of
    I think they keep the sizes small to streamline the site. Also, most
    of the people on that site are pros and don't won't their pics stolen.
    Many of them consider that site as just thumbnails, with links to their
    real websites elsewhere.

    Heard a good analogy by Brooks Jensen recently. Most photographers are like
    guys on casual dates, they try this subject and that subject, but never
    really get married to a subject. He concluded that only the marriages
    result in meaningful work, and I agree. I'm still in the dating phase, too.

    No, it seems odd they'd let someone in who isn't a photoshop professional.
    Speaks volumes as to the merit of the site as a display of professional
    photoshop work.

    Why not just build your own site, Bret? Or hire me to!

    It's unlikely you'll make a very attentive husband, then!

    If you got the 99 bucks, congrats .... you're a Photoshop Professional!

    ===============
    Sorry, I just spent my last $99.

    I've been thinking about building a website for over 5 years now.
    Story of my life ... never enough time.
    I think I've still got a copy of Microsoft Frontpage still in the
    shrink wrap.
    What do you use? Dreamweaver?

    I'd recommend 'gallery' open source php based or similar. It's just like
    pbase with auto uploading, resizing, multiple sizes & thumbnail
    creation, registration, login, comments, ratings, everything. Just tweak
    the background color, fonts, logo, etc.

    I've hand coded something similar for my web sites with much less
    automation but it's easier for me to get in & fine tune things and
    customize. But you can customize 'gallery' quite a bit without knowing
    any programming or html. A little bit of unix & ftp knowledge is needed
    to install it. Big jumble of config files that need to coordinate
    properly. Major changes can be done just by copy-paste some code from
    their discusssion forums. You can even find all sorts of plugins for
    blogging and shopping carts, whatever you want.

    Front page & Dreamweaver are a mess. Really bloated messy slow loading
    web pages with lots of javascript compatibility problems. That's like
    using a P&S camera with windows installed in the menu, blech.

    Dreamweaver at home and Frontpage at work. And I charge $400 for your
    average five page spread.

    Hey, I've an idea, why not marry one and then just occasionally cheat on it?
    Yeah, that's the ticket!
