Discover Africa, Jordan, Iceland… What an adventure!

Reviews, Rebates, and Roaring good times!

I’m very excited this week as I have a bunch of great news to share. I just wrote an extensive review of the new On1 Photo RAW image editing app and I’m hoping that you’ll get some inspiration from it. Today is the day that On1 is announcing the newest version of the software, 2017.5. There are a ton of new features in the app, so many that I actually had to put them all on a separate page.

I was privileged to be able to be one of th few people beta testing this software and I’ll continue to work with On1 to continually try to make a great product even better. If you have any comments or requested features for Photo RAW, just let me know and I’ll pass it on to the men and women behind the curtains at On1 HQ. Okay, okay… there are no curtains but I’ll still pass on your feedback 🙂

I also want to thank On1 for their generosity!

As you may know, I’m part of the team at Discovery Photo Tours and On1 is offering each of our Jordan tour guests a $1,000.00 rebate! Not too shabby, if I must say so myself. On top of it all, all Jordan tour participants will get a free copy of On1 Photo RAW and a one-year membership to On1 Plus.

A Five Minute Edit Using On1 Photo RAW

 African Adventure Photo Tour

Safari photo tour

“You know you are truly alive when you’re living among lions.”
~ Karen Blixen, Out of Africa

This year, for the first time ever, I’ll be headed to Africa to co-lead a scouting expedition in Tanzania to begin planning our African Great Migration tour for 2018. And for the first time ever on a scouting trip, we invited 4 lucky guests to join us in the field.

Small group – All inclusive – Trip of a Lifetime!

Tanzania photo tour

The seats sold out instantly and we had a substantial waiting list so we decided to add a second trip to run right after the first one since we wanted to keep the experience intimate and keep the groups to 4 guests.

We’ve decided to add two extra small group tours to this expedition since we had such good response from our original offering. This is your opportunity to join professional travel photographers on assignment and learn in the field from the pros! Along with our team of pro photographers, you’ll also get the chance to photograph Giraffes, Zebras, Hippos, Antelopes, Gazelles, Hyenas, Flamingos, Baboons, and Cheetahs… plus the world-famous Great Migration of Wildebeest!

Iceland, Jordan, Tanzania, a uge software review and new discounts… Phew! That’s enought for today but I’ll have a new post up very soon 🙂

THE 2017 SOCIAL MEDIA IMAGE SIZES CHEAT SHEET

All the info for your social media image sizes in one place

As time goes by, all the social media platforms change the requirements for the size of images that is ideal for posting on your profile. There are header images, profile pics, timeline photos, and more! It can get quite confusing especially when posting to many different platforms like Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, etc. It is quite difficult to keep track of all the different social media image sizes but there is help…

On that note, I’m happy to share with you a fantastic infographic that details all the optimum image sizes you will need for all your social media needs!

I’ll add a few tips of my own here as well

For a sharp Facebook image to share on your timeline, share the image at 2048 pixels on the long side at maximum quality (12) in JPG format.

If you’re a Photoshop user, be sure to size your photo before sharpening!

For the cheat sheet below, use the specified image sizes or multiples of those sizes if you want a larger image to share. For example, the suggested size for a timeline image to share on Twitter is 440px X 220px. If you want to share a larger version, just double the size and make it 880px X 440px or bigger at 1760px X 880px.

2017 SOCIAL MEDIA IMAGE SIZES CHEAT SHEET

Big thanks and shout out to Jamie Spencer at makeawebsitehub.com for permission to share the infographic here on my blog.
