IMPORTANT NOTE

Distribution of BIRDS AS ART On-Line Bulletins and Notes is handled by a wonderful program:  Group Mail Pro.  Many e-mail providers have severe restrictions on incoming mail.  Some bounce back all e-mails with attachments, others kick back e-mails greater than a certain size, and still others reject all group e-mails as spam.  With some-0-but not all--bounced e-mails, Group Mail Pro automatically deletes the recipient's name from the subscriber list.   If that happens to you, you may need to re-subscribe.  Or, you may simply opt to check every week and view the latest Bulletins and Notes in the Bulletin Archives at:

CORRECT LINK FOR AA LITHIUM BATTERIES

the correct link for the AA Lithium Batteries mentioned in Bulletin # 91 is:

Sorry for our error.

PREPARING IMAGES FOR ON-LINE TRANSMISSION

For sending images on line, it is best to follow these guidelines: 
 
Size the image at 525 pixels on the long side.    In Photoshop, click SAVE FOR WEB.
 
Select j-peg high.
 
Note the size in "k" in the lower left portion of the window.  You want to size the image at  just under 95 k so that they are quickly and easily transmitted.
 
Where it says, "Quality" adjust the percentage up (to produce a larger file) or down (to produce a smaller file) as needed.  To re-calculate the size, click on the black arrow just above the word Optimized.
 
Keep adjusting the percentage until the size is just under 95k.
 
That's it.

If you are interested in having your best images critiqued by yours truly, here is a link to the details:

http://www.birdsasart.com/image_critiques.htm

I forgot also to include John Emerson's (kind) comments on the critique of his work.  Here is what he wrote:

Your BAA Critique Service has got to be one of the best bargains ever.  The problem patterns that you picked up in my composition would have stayed there for who-knows-how-long without your help. Like a lot of other weekend warriors out there are trying to improve their skills, I find myself getting into these ruts and bad habits.  Having a highly skilled pair of eyes like yours that have been fine-tuned over nearly 20  years of professional experience to help me improve is a HUGE value.  The other piece of the value proposition is that you effectively communicate this information.  Thanks for all your help.

FYI - you are correct.  The White-tailed Kite, Acorn Woodpecker, Nutall's Woodpecker, and Pacific-slope Flycatcher were all digital captures.  After 6+ months of research and analysis; I made the decision last March to sell all of my film bodies, switched to the Canon EOS 1D, and never looked back.

I need to hear about any mistakes/typos/errors that you might find in "The Art of Bird Photography" no later than November 10, which is this Sunday.  Thanks for your help!
