JPEGmini – Your Photos on a Diet!

Great service that compresses your jpeg images for the web.  All of the images I have uploaded to the site so far have been compressed with JPEGmini.  You can use higher compression when saving in Photoshop or other image tools, but JPEGmini maintains quality a lot better.  I’m hoping they have an export plugin for Lightroom and Photoshop soon. JPEGmini – Your Photos on a Diet!

First Post

My first blog bost on the new site.  The main purpose of this site is to have more creative control of how images I post are presented.  It also allows me to post content, recommendations, and news I find interesting in one spot rather than spread among many social networking sites out there.

Testing “WP Retina 2X” Plugin For...

Now that WordPress 4.4 is out (and used on this site as of December 8, 2015) I wanted to test the Retina 2X plugin for WordPress to see how it works and if it makes a difference on my 4K monitor and iPhone.  I exported two images from Lightroom, one is 1024 pixels wide, the other 3840 pixels wide (4K). 1024 pixels version below.  The blog displays images here at 818 pixels wide, and if you click you get the large version.    The 3840 pixel version.  The theory is that high resolution displays should show a higher quality version than the one above (which is limited by the file...

Protected: Underground Mine Tour

I recently had the opportunity to travel 1.3Km underground at a copper mine in Sudbury, Ontario.  Not my first time in an underground mine, but the first time in a metal mine.  Previously, I visited a coal mine but cameras were not allowed (not approved for the environment).  So this was a welcome opportunity.  First, I had to get suited up to look the part. You then take a large elevator, or hoist.  This is the view at the 4000′ level where we got off. At first, the space is relatively large, but as you will see later it gets much smaller and messier. We find our vehicle, and hop in. My colleagues, Piotr and Jamie. Heading towards...

Sunset at the edge of the continent.  Taken in Uclulet, British Columbia in early October 2012.  My wife and I stayed in Uclulet for a few days and were treated to great weather and fantastic sunsets every day we were there.  The best sunset was the last one as some clouds rolled in and made...
