A Quick Mejiro Update

This update is all about polishing and fixing minor deficiencies. Mejiro now properly handles the Next and Previous navigation links: the links are automatically disabled when the first or the last photo is reached. The same applies to the Map link: if the photo contains no geographical coordinates, the Map link is disabled.

mejiro-2014-10-25

If you look closely, you’ll notice that the way the key photographic values are displayed has been slightly tweaked. More importantly, though, the new version improves handling of empty values.

As always, the latest version of Mejiro is available for download from the project’s GitHub page, and you can view a Mejiro demo at dmpop.dhcp.io/mejiro.

Best Travel Cameras 9

One of the greatest joys in life is travel, and one of the greatest joys in travel is taking pictures. Whether you’re looking to populate an album with touristy shots of famous landmarks, or taking the time to compose artistic shots of eclectic locales, travel photography is one of the most exciting and rewarding areas of the hobby.

That’s not to say that shooting during a trip is always heavenly. Many travelers make the mistake of lugging around far more gear than they’ll ever need. By the middle of the trip it’s become too tedious and annoying. The excitement and joy has been bled from both photography, and the vacation. With an aching neck and a sense of lost opportunity, these overloaded travelers stow their camera bag in the hotel safe and spend the rest of the trip happy, but photographically unfulfilled.

20 Eye-Catching Packaging and Presentation Examples for Photographers

There are a few ways to deliver images to your clients: on a DVD, on a flash-drive, or through a custom online gallery.
