If you’re not sure how you’re going to accomplish the writing and pictures part of this process, here are some tips for you.
1/6th Page Photo + Caption Option
1) Choose your picture(s) first
Your Caption will depend on which photo(s) you choose, so choose your photos before you start.
2) Decide if you want to write your Caption yourself or just answer questions
If you’re going to just answer a few questions and we’ll write the Caption for you, then just proceed to uploading photos and buying your book(s). If you’re going to write it yourself, write it on a computer or tablet (50-word max) so you can copy/paste it when you upload your photos.
3) You can use two square photos of different people and include them both
Your max for 1/6th of a Page is 50 words, but feel free to include two pictures of two different people and write a little about each, or two pictures of the same person (with two deer, or one of the mount). You can also include one horizontal photo of the whole camp and include everybody’s names in the caption.
Full Page Option
1) Choose your pictures first
Find 4-6 photos and write a Caption for each of them.
2) Decide if you want to write your own story or ask us for help
We can talk to you and write your story for you, or you can write it yourself. If you write it yourself, use Microsoft Word or Google Docs and remember the 250-word limit. Get your Captions and your Story to the computer or tablet you’re going to upload your photos from. If you want help writing it, upload your photos, give them a Caption when you upload them, then expect an email to set up a phone call.
Because you’re getting this printed in a book, you’re going to want the largest picture possible, because books need high-resolution photos. You also want to get the photo where you’re going to need it when it comes time to upload. So, here is some advice related to photos.
1) Find the biggest photo you can, ideally out of the phone that first took the photo
Do not use a Facebook photo unless you absolutely must because Facebook reduces the resolution of photos. Do not use a photo that is texted to you unless you absolutely must. Try to use the photo out of the original phone or device that took the photo. Get that photo to a computer or tablet in its biggest size possible, and get it to the device you’re going to use to upload (via email if necessary).
2) Email them to yourself in the largest size possible
Then you’ll be able to find them when you need them, no matter what.
Always remember, worst case just buy your books and your 1/6th Page or Full Page, and we’ll help you with the story. Just answer a few questions and we’ll write your 1/6th Page Caption, or (if you’re getting a Page) upload your photos, ask us for help and we’ll talk.
