There is ONE Sure-Fire way to stop people from stealing your images online

Jared Polin January 26, 2014 Comments Off

There is one sure-fire way to stop people from stealing your images online and that is to NOT POST ANY PHOTOS ONLINE.

Let’s get that out there right off the bat, there is pretty much nothing you can do to stop people from taking your images off your website. I personally do not worry about this at all and in fact I have come around to embracing my images being shared and viewed online as long as people do not try and sell them as their own.

The other day when I posted a video about how to deactivate right clicking on your Squarespace and people jumped down my throat. The reason I was making people aware of that option is if they wanted to do one thing to not let people right click on the images. There are a million other things people can do to take your images like print screen or by simply finding where the files get stored on your computer.

If you still are interested in deactivating right clicking you can see the code below and enter the html into the header on the backend of your Squarespace.

For people who have or are thinking about using Squarespace I wanted to share with you the proper sizing to export your images. They recommend that you upload JPEG’s that are 1500px on the longest size. Once your images are uploaded Squarespace will resize them into six different sizes.

The reason they do this is so your images will load as quick as possible depending on what device someone is using to browse your site. If they are looking at them on an iphone, ipad or on the computer, the site will select the proper sized image.

Is this a plug for Squarespace, yes it is. I personally use them so I am not afraid to recommend them to you.

Check out my Suite at the Paris Hotel in Las Vegas: Cribs Edition

Jared Polin January 22, 2014 Comments Off

Here is a review AKA a walkthrough of my Suite at the Paris Hotel in Las Vegas. I like to call this the FroKnowsPhoto Las Vegas Cribs Edition.

The suite at the Paris Hotel was huge. I don’t think I have stayed in a room in my life that was as big as this. It’s like someone took two rooms and cut it right down the middle and said “hey, lets make this two rooms instead of one”.

This room had almost everything. From the king sized bed to the his and hers bathroom to the jacuzzi tub to the AUTO raising tv. It had almost everything but it was missing Auto Drapes.

All and all this room was killer and I really enjoyed staying at the Paris. The element was much nicer than some of the other places I have stayed in Vegas, so that is a plus.

The FIRST Rapid Fire Critique of the 2014: Please Submit Yours

Guess what is back, the AdoramaPIX Rapid Fire Critique.

The first critique of 2014 brings us a set shot entirely with the Nikon D3000. Keep in mind this is an entry level camera that goes back almost four years or more at this point. But I want you to always remember it is not the camera that makes the photo it’s the photographer. Oh yea and glass doesn’t hurt either.

There are many things I liked about this set. I liked the way the photographer brought out life in inanimate object. I liked how they composed the images and some of the processing.

On the flip side they were shooting in auto which I explained is not a bad thing when you are just starting out. When you watch the video I think you will start to see why it’s important to take control of your camera.

Thanks for watching and don’t forget to check out AdoramaPIX.com for killer photo books, aluminized prints and regular prints.
