This is the rub.

What is a digital negative?

What is a high resoloution image?

 

Always ask:

What format, what size (dimensions in pixels), what bit depth, what image size (MB)

 

High res to me is massive to you, and tiny to a high-end commercial photographer

Dont touch the photo's in your album, contact the original photographer. Believe it or not, the editing process is long, painstaking and hard work.. We only supply edited images. If a photographer is not, then a corner has been cut (and half a week has been liberated from the PC)

Thanks everyone for your input. Morgan I will send you a pick. If I want to edit some pics on my CD, what would be the best way to save it to keep it in the "high resolution"?

 

TIA

OK they are 2304 x 3456, so you can definitly get nice prints from them. Also they are not raw files. It does look like it has been corrected. Are the prints possibly with enhanments the files don't have? you can still order prints of these the way they are & they will look nice. Or you can do some enhancing in photoshop if you want.

I get this question a lot!

 

So here's how I do it.

 

Every client gets a CD with a ton of pics (usually over 600)

 

The pictures get slight adjustments. They don't need much. Most of the time I get the perfect exposure in the camera so they don't need much Photoshop.

 

I call these Proofs, and yes I do include a release so they can make their own prints anywhere they want.

 

The Digital Negatives are the images directly from the camera. If the client wants them, they can have them.

 

Any prints or albums included in the package (or ordered from the website) get the full treatment - Wrinkles removed, zits zapped, laugh lines reduced, as well as other distractions in the picture reduced or removed. The color is enhanced a touch, and a bit more photoshop magic is performed.

 

Since I take so many pictures at each wedding, there is no way I have enough time to do this to ALL the photos. But, anything that I do retouch for the album, IS included on the CD.

 

I hope this all makes sense - feel free to PM me with specific questions, and I'll gladly answer them.

Thanks so much everyone! I really appreciate the info. I so wish I still planning our ceremony. LOL

 

 

Also, if I want to play around with the images on the CD, what should I save it as to keep the same quality image? When I click to save as, it asks how high-for example: an 11 as high or 1 as low?? Sorry for sounds stupid

I save everything at a level 10 (it should go to 12). this is a compromise between great quality and huge file size. If you check out my website the pics are all saved at level 10. If you have a dial-up modem it will be slow, but DSL or CABLE will load quick, and you can make the window HUGE to see the Quality.

I'll agree that the best thing for prospective clients to do is ask the photographer to show you an example of exactly what you'll be getting.... "high rez" and "digital negatives" are pretty loose terms sometimes.

 

Sorry you've run into this confusion! I wish you the bst in getting this sorted out!

I'm surprised about that... and sad for you!
I never give a un-edited files to my customer... each files have pass under photoshop...and at the best that I can for each photo! And I give a full release to the customer.

If your photographer doesn't want to give you the edited files... and if you want some files to be print.. I can maybe help you for some (5-10) and do all photoshop on it wink.gif

Sorry for the bad english... and good luck!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
