Own a business? Own a website? Then you need to read this…

You may have heard mention of GDPR on the news, and have received numerous emails from companies asking if you still want to hear from them. This is down to a new law on Data Protection and Privacy that comes into effect on 25th May 2018.

The GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) covers data protection and privacy for all individuals within the European Union, and gives significantly more rights to the owner of the data (the ‘data subject’) than before. This means greater fines for businesses improperly collecting and using an individual’s data.

Flickr acquired by SmugMug

Flickr acquired by SmugMug

Flickr, the photo sharing website, has been acquired by premium photo hosting company SmugMug. Based on what SmugMug are currently saying I’m hoping that this might actually be a good thing.

Flickr and SmugMug will continue to operate as separate entities indefinitely, although CEO Don MacAskill says he doesn’t yet know what his plans are for Flickr.

Photo Retouching & Editing Poole (I love my job!)

Photo Retouching & Editing Poole (I love my job!)

I love my job… always something different. Today I’ve been editing and re-touching a lovely young lady’s graduation photo, as she said that it didn’t look like her.

I had to literally replace her eyebrows, which looked fuzzy and a strange colour, and also move her mouth slightly as a ‘rogue shadow’ was making it look lopsided.

Now it’s so much better and it looks like her. I hope she’ll be pleased too.
