Family Redux

Waiting game almost over!

This family — you’ve seen them before, they’ve been so patient waiting for photos. I had all my editing done for them, sent the files off to the lab for printing and when I got them back, there was something terribly wrong. Why no one at the lab caught it is beyond me. They’re supposed to check for such things. I finally figured out what happened. In uploading images for OpLove’s database, I’d had to change my settings to reduce the file size. Before I started editing this batch, I’d forgotten to reset to highest quality and everything I’d edited saved at low quality. Very low quality. I had to go back and re-edit every single photo again. It’s taken forever. And ever. And ever. I’m almost done. I have about 15 more to go. (I edit every usable image and then cull because I can’t do it otherwise. Stupid, huh?)

The lab will reduce my print cost by half since they didn’t catch the error, but because it was MY error, I still have to pay. Anyhow, the family will be getting their photos next week. Finally. Arrrgh! I now have a post-it note stuck to the computer to remind me to check my settings prior to saving any photo files. D’oh!


  1. What a great photo! Sorry there was an error… but you’re only human. I think you do an amazing job for how tired and stressed you must be! :hug:
