Before we get to the links, be sure to check out this interview/review of ME! It’s quite a lengthy write-up and it includes some answers to questions, quotes, excerpts, and lots of photos.

About the video: I would be the first to say Photoshop adds a lot to a picture and it’s a must to learn how to use. However, often people tend to loose themselves, retouching portraits of people is ok, but with too much retouching the expression on peoples faces is lost. I think that’s the case in some pictures in the video.

The photoblog designing tips: my number 1 irritation on websites is a dark background. I don’t know whether it’s only my bad eyes, but looking at a subject on a dark background when it’s getting dark and latr at night is just terrible. Neutral colors ok, but pleaseeeeeeee not too dark…
This brings me to another point: usability! Not just for photoblog, but for websites in general, always design the website with the user in mind. Something can look very good, but does a user understand how to navigate and find what he/she is looking for? Further, I agree on the other points.

Also fun to see those photoshop ‘fakes’. Again, where do you cross the line?

I agree, some of the photos in the video were a little weird as a result of the Photoshop work — a little too far. But… it does show some interesting things that are possible with Photoshop.

So you’re against dark backgrounds on photoblogs huh? I don’t know, I kind of like viewing images on black — it helps bring out their highlights. Though I’ll agree that neutral colors are a must for photo intensive blogs. Anything on the grayscale is bound to mesh well with almost any photo.
