Photo Notes

It's taken (and is continuing to take), quite a lot of effort to get this web site (plus my others) fully up and running. It's taking hours, and hours, and hours. Eventually I'll get there (that presumes I know where I'm going).

I took more pictures than ever before (almost 10,000!) with the Olympus 2500L digital camera I bought 3 years ago for just this purpose. As you can appreciate though, I needed to put a lot of effort into hybridizing so my picture taking has to be balanced with other things. Looking back at my pictures I wish I had taken even more! It's not surprising I was only able to get the 2002 Retic pictures posted during bloom season. I haven't yet gotten any others from 2002 up, but will do so over the remaining winter months.

The camera takes pictures that are 1712 x 1368 pixels (2.5 Mega pixels - leading edge digital SLR technology at the time it was purchased). With an 8:1 compression, images take up about 500K. In order to save space on the web server, as well as provide pictures most people could handle without graphics software I "cut them down" to ~1024 x 768. At this size they typically take under 150K of storage space.

With my expanded web site starting early 2002 I was able to offer full-sized pictures. You can now download the large picture (1027 x 821), or the full-size picture (1027 x 821) [the picture that comes up when you click the "medium" picture], by right mouse clicking, then selecting 'Save Image As' (Netscape) or 'Save Picture As' (MS Explorer).

In the "Faster" version of the web site you can download the small picture (274 x 219), or the larger picture (1027 x 821) [the picture that comes up when you click the "mini" picture], by right mouse clicking, then selecting 'Save Image As' (Netscape) or 'Save Picture As' (MS Explorer).
