THIS IS A BIG PROJECT, SO WHERE DO YOU BEGIN?
THREE EASY STEPS!

•Start with a collection of your best 14 best images.
•These can be from your photography assignments, life, instagram.... but all photos must be taken by YOU!
•If some images are from class assignments like panoramas, remove your name, assignment name and period from the background.
•Make sure you reposition your images in the center of the background, so they look perfect...
•Be sure to lighten or darken images (use "levels" or "curves" adjustments).
CROP YOUR IMAGES BEFORE PLACING THEM ON YOUR WEBSITE!!!
•Crop your two faviorite photos at 2000 pixels wide @ 72 pixels/inch resolution.
•Crop your remaining horizontal images at 900 pixels wide @ 72 pixels/inch resolution.
•Crop your vertical images at 750 pixels tall @ 72 pixels/inch resolution.
•Save your images in a new folder on your desktop.
•Call this folder web_gallerypics
