Friday Wrap-Up

♦ – I just received my first prints from MPIX and I have to say that I was thoroughly impressed with the quality of the enlargements.  They really did a great job and will definitely receive my repeat business.  It was a great experience from beginning to end.  Oh, and the best part, they shipped my prints flat, not rolled in a tube.

♦ – The other day I wrote about a new noise reduction software from TopazLabs called TopazDeNoise.  The original release was for Windows only but I just received word that the Mac version has now been released.  As a bonus, all existing Topaz Adjust customers can download Topaz DeNoise for free for a limited time.  To check out the offer and all of the TopazLabs products, check out their website here.

♦ – If you are a FaceBook fan, and I know you are, then you need to know that the Photoshop Guys now have their own page.  That’s right, Scott, Dave, and Matt can now be found on FaceBook where they will post updates and a bunch of other stuff for all you PhotoshopUser TV lovers out there.  You can find their page and add them to your friend list right here.

♦ – Calling all SouthWest Florida photowalkers.  If you are looking for information about local photowalks, there is now a blog dedicated to bringing you news about all of the upcoming activities in your area.  Check out Kurt Lawson’s new Naplesphotowalk.com for more information.

♦ – Finally, for a little weekend inspiration, check out the great landscape photography over at Outdoor-Photos.com.  They have a fantastic collection of landscape photography that is sure to make you want to grab up your camera and head towards the nearest sunset.  You can find it all right here.

Well that’s all for this week.  Be sure to check back next week for photowalk news and a lot more!

Have a great weekend!

    So how does the prints from M-Pix compare to your Epson 2200. Cost wise that is. With shipping it would be an interesting breakdown. I know when we make the prints ourself, we tend to re-do a few times and that can be costly. Did you get one of their wrap prints or just regular.

  2. I can speak for my r2400 vs Mpix – I think they each have merit -More fine art and small – I will go with a MOAB paper or velvet fine art with the epson – I was at a reception last night in Georgetown at the Law firm I did all that Georgetown work for. I was able to order 7 20×30 standouts on metallic paper and drop ship them for the art they used on the walls of the party. They looked FANTASTIC!!! I am 100% sold on them now. I do not know what else I could have gave them to make them POP like that. Jeff did you print any of your HDR stuff on Metallic? the stand outs I highly recommend.

    Many pics in my initial shipment from MPIX were ruined because, although I used “Preview”, I added a border and preview does NOT reflect the additional cropping caused by the border. With no way to call – they use email for support – I was sure I’d made a mistake. BUT, after a detailed email with Molly, MPIX understood the problem and did a reprint. (Adding the borders in PS or LR will ensure you aren’t surprised like I was.) Happy customer. They do a good job and the flat shipping is great.

  4. Thanks Jeff for sharing my new site with everyone, I still have some work to do on it and it will be updated with more locations on Nov. 1st. He whole idea behind this site is to share some great location for shooting in the SW Florida area. That way everyone can spend more time shooting, less time searching. Hope we can shoot together sometime… Kurt

  5. Hi Again Jeff,
    BTW I just added your Blog to my site… Kurt

    I want to use MPIX but am extremely confused on how to get my image perfect for uploading to them. I use a D300 and own PS3. I’ve read about the need to re-size and re-sample your image (depending on the size you want) as well as soft-proofing as being a must. I would love to see a video tutorial on getting your image ready and setup for upload to MPIX. Please. :-)
