To start choosing your favourites first thing you need to do is to create an account in our ordering system. Simply visit your gallery on our website, and click “Create Account” from the top menu of the gallery.
Then browse through your images adding to “Favourites” by clicking on the heart icon.
You can remove any image from favourites by clicking the heart icon again.
Once you have made your selection, you can choose “Favorites” from top bar menu.
You can compare images by checking them with the flag icon and then choose the compare option. You can compare as many images as you want but for most screens, 2 or 3 are enough.
In a side by side view you can see enlarged version of compared images, and remove the one that you do not want to have in your book or prints by clicking the Remove button above the image. Please note that this does not remove the image from the favourites list, but only from compare list.
When you will add more than 2 images to compare, a scroll bar will appear below the images, allowing you to scroll between the images in your compare selection allowing you to “flick” between images that are anywhere in the gallery.
Each image can be viewed in 3 colour options: Original, Black & White, and Sepia Tone. Just click the Filter icon on top of the image. All 3 options will be available in a pop up menu.
When in thumbnail view you can quick look at a larger version of the image by hovering (not clicking) your mouse pointer over the image, and a larger version of the image will apear above thumbnails.
When viewing images you can zoom in to check expressions or see detail. Click on an image and then hover your mouse over the image, and the pointer will change to a magnifying glass, and you will be able to pan and scroll over the larger size image. This feature will help assess expressions but it is still a low resolution web image and the final decision can be made when we meet and look at the images on a large screen.
This is the best way to arrive at your selection of images.
This does not have to be a final choice as you will have lots of opportunity to amend your choice when we design your book. Also if you find it difficult to choose between images, leave both and we can compare them in high resolution on my screen which is much better than the web images.
Once you have a set in Favourites that you are happy with, email me and I can then access your selection and have them ready for you to view when we meet.
