Facebook photo policy


Holy moly. It's here. Wedding season already!! Denise starts us off this weekend with nuptials at Grace Restaurant in Portland, so keep your eyes peeled for those images soon. In the meantime, I wanted to take a quick moment of your online browsing time to let you know about our new Facebook policy we are implementing for the 2012 season.

You love Facebook, we love Facebook, but the process of sharing your images on Facebook can be rather tedious, we acknowledge. This year, if you purchase a disc of high resolution digital images you'll receive a folder on that disc with all of your images correctly sized for the web, ready to upload and with our studio watermark already in place.

Following the example given in the image below you'll see how to properly credit the studio in the caption and we encourage you to link to your blog post for those curious viewers who want to learn more.

As for how many images you upload, that is entirely up to you. Personally I am apt to scroll through a Facebook photo album of 25 images or fewer, maybe 40 if I find myself with an extra few minutes and a really fantastic subject (which of course your wedding images will be). I've seen people upload 1200 wedding images to Facebook, every last one from a wedding weekend, and well, that's just silly. You don't want to be that guy. Not everyone- no, not your network of two thousand plus friends from every walk of life- needs to see everything from this, your most personal day. If they do, send them to your Pictage gallery with a password to see every last detail's glory and keep your Facebook show & tell to a more manageable count. You'll be sure to get more views and more comments that way. And who doesn't love Facebook comments?

Let us know if you have any questions!
