Webinar Alert! Is a picture worth a thousand words?

A picture; thousand words?"What's easier than uploading a picture online", you say?

And indeed, we *all* think we rock at it...but let's be honest: we don't...
Do you have an eye for quality pictures? Do you know how to resize them without distorting them? Do you know that there are a number of rules and rights around pictures that you should not deny... 

Join the upcoming GFAR's webinar on June 22nd at 13:00 CET (and will last about 1.5 hours).

The topic will be “Pictures: a website’s blessing or curse?”, a practical webinar, showing how to find, and process pictures which are a blessing, rather than a curse, for your website or blog.

Presented by Peter Casier - online media consultant -:

Part 1: How to find appropriate pictures for your blog/website (or web content). 

This means pictures which are:

  • appropriate in topic
  • good quality
  • and most importantly, are not copyrighted

Part 2: How to process pictures before uploading them

Here I want to share some of the inside workings of a web browser, when viewing pictures, and explain, why sooooo many blogs and websites are slow, just because of the pictures they use.

I’d like to show the one and only (free) tool I use, to process (edit, enhance, crop, shrink and compress) pictures before uploading them, while maintaining an excellent quality. (hint: and it ain’t Photoshop!).
