We use money as a medium because barter simply doesn't always work. Imagine you try to barter your photography services to a photographer...not very valuable, eh? But, when you think of your services, I'd encourage you to think of them in terms of dollars. What is an hour of your time as a photographer worth? Let's put a number on it - say $100/hour. If ...

Is there some service that will allow us to upload all these photos and put them into a combined album? Does Flickr have shared albums? Flickr does not have shared albums, but instead has a feature called groups. If each of you get an individual Flickr account, one of you can create a group (public, invitation only public, or private, up to you), and invite ...

You could get a hosting with mysql (costs about 50 $/year) and install a good php gallery. A good one could be for example coppermine gallery. But there are manymore. Supports multiple uploads, usually you dont have space limits with those hostings, easy to use, supports galleries, user, rights, hidden galleries and a Whole lot more. Personally I would go ...

Unless you want to replace it yourself, you should ask around in repair shops, for the cost of it and the replacement. If you want the adventure, check on Alibaba, usually they sell wholesale, so you will have to ask around, and also getting speedy and quality service from China is tricky many times. I suggest the first option above.

Facebook themselves have a guide that answers the why here. Use images that are at least 1200 x 630 pixels for the best display on high resolution devices. At the minimum, you should use images that are 600 x 315 pixels to display link page posts with larger images. If your image is smaller than 600 x 315 px, it will still display in the link ...

Microsoft OneDrive (formerly SkyDrive) is a cloud service that should suit your needs. If you are a Windows user, you can have it integrated to the Windows Explorer and use this program as an uploader. Drag&drop to a web browser window is another option. It does support the directory structure. (I'm not sure about the maximum depth though.)

As answered by @nick the photo dimensions of 35x45mm translate to 413x513px at 300DPI. On top of that, you may have to look for biometric requirements (eg. size of the head, distance of the head from the top) from official sources. The common do-it-yourself technique is editing your photo accordingly in photoshop. (Shameless plug) Having gone through that ...

If you are a web developer, then you should definitely consider Piwigo. It's free software, you can either self-host it if you want full control on it, or use a paid-for hosting service like piwigo.com. Even with the piwigo.com solution, you still have a lot of control (you can customize your gallery with themes, plugins, and even write CSS code). I ...

This is fine. You have a usual fee for a reason. It's also okay to barter your services (ideally for something else of value, not "exposure"!), but there's no reason to feel guilty.

Maybe it helps someone, I have used following site couple of times to focus stack images: https://focusstackingonline.com/. I actually tried it also on mobile and it worked.

I haven't used it, but you might look into Picolay. It has a "portable" install capability (i.e., no admin rights needed; run from anywhere) http://picolay.de/download.htm

A lot of good info there. Please feel free to ask me about service. I am on Long Island so geographically you are far but I will answer any question. Lamp wise, led not really needed as the 75 watt usual is not that hot. I have seen many 23c 111 with no heat shield at all and no cooked negs. Alignment with a laser is fairly easy with practice. Or a parallel ...

Most of it is common sense. I am a maniac, so let me categorize things. Maintenance, in general, is divided into two categories. 1. Preventive Cleaning Lubrication 2. Corrective Parts replacement Oxidation Electric malfunction Light leak The first part is to actually know the stuff. So take a screwdriver, on a clean desk and try to disassemble some ...

Here's what I'd do: Take it apart and blow it out with dry compressed air use specific bulb designed for enlarging if you change bulbs clean the condensor (s) with lintless wipes and use lens cleaner spray some wd-40 on a rag and wipe the gears and tracks with it, use very lightly and sparingly If the elevation lock is broken fix/replace it... duhhh! ...

I’ve written a simple free and open source multi-platform desktop app that does exactly that: http://jiotty-photos-uploader.yudichev.net/. It’s been used quite a lot by now and is considered stable. Jiotty Photos Uploader is a simple desktop application for Windows, macOS and Linux that scans a folder, including all subfolders, for photos and videos, and ...

Flickr has an API which allows people to write their own uploaders, and which supports creating photosets (which I think is an alias for albums). There are at least some tools around which use it: see e.g. https://github.com/trickortweak/flickr-uploader ; https://github.com/rdvdijk/flickr_uploader If you want to use Flickr but can't find a tool which does ...

What I generally do is just put direct links to the full size image on my Facebook page. This results in the oneboxing kicking in and automatically converting it to an image like you see there. I don't personally use a paid service, but rather put my images on my owncloud instance which I run myself, but there is no reason you shouldn't be able to use a ...

I personally recommend using SmugMug (www.smugmug.com) These sites are really easy to browse through, exceptionally cheap, and offer great features for storage (to include private gallery sharing, etc.) I recently was doing the storage hop-shuffle, and discovered SmugMug right in the nick of time, before I was about to dump a bunch of unnecessary time into ...

It really all depends on where you are. I would avoid using a camera retailer, because they usually send the gear to the manufacturer. If you're anywhere near Michigan, I'd recommend either Oakland Photographic Repair or Midwest Camera Repair. Midwest RARELY ships gear to other facilities, and they do repairs in a timely manner. Oakland Photographic Repair ...

I personally like Whitewall - their main site is whitewall.com, but they also have sites for other European countries and the EU as a whole... (bit convoluted) Their French site is here: https://www.whitewall.fr/ Having said that, their focus is on high quality art prints, so it might be more than you need.
