Tips for Taking Great Photos for Your Gallery


You can take great photos of your quilts with your digital camera.


  • Taking photos outside (especially on a hazy day) is best. But you can experiment with your flash or set up near a window.

  • Take a shot "straight on" to get the whole quilt. It's hard to see a quilt on a bed.

  • Take one or more close-ups too.


The technical stuff is incredibly easy.


  • Look at the "Quality" settings on your camera. Choose: Email or Website or UGA or 640 x 480. Those are all the same (the lowest resolution).


But if you have large files, they can easily be made email-friendly. With a few clicks on Photoshop, you're done.

As a last resort, email them to me and I'll resize them for you.
