Snapshot: Something In Blue





Did everyone get a chance to visit Mrs. Orchid's post yesterday over at Wedding Bee? I instantly fell in love with her photographers, Something In Blue... and once again was blocked by my "NO RIGHT CLICK" nemesis! However, I used a few loopholes and bring you these... *which don't do them any justice.... so visit the site and be awed by the amazing use of color and their great eye. I really love that each and every image seems as though it were shot for a really trendy Tokyo Pop Culture Magazine. There is such light-hearted fun in each of their shots,... without seeming to forced or awkward... perhaps if you are in the New York Area and looking for a photog, you'll drop them a line... enjoy

(the saga with my inability to breach these sites continues... anyone out there that may have a solution??? So often I visit blogs and see the pictures that I spent literally hours trying to get... and think HOW???)

I saw the post and found the shots amazing...different, unique but beautiful at the same time.

As for your 'saga' don't worry... I have the same problem, yet you seem to be doing better than me :)

try holding down the ctrl key while clicking on your image.
OR.. open apple, shift and the #4 key simultaneously will give you a little cross hair symbol. drag that over the image you are trying to capture and it will save the image to your desktop. good luck!

I loved these photos too! I have a very easy solution for you:

1. Download Irfanview. It's a free photo-viewing and MINOR editing program (this is by no means a Photoshop alternative.)
2. When you find a photo you like and can't save it, take a Print-screen image (press Alt + PrtScn)
3. Paste into Irfanview.
4. Crop as desired. Simply drag a box around the area you want to save and go to Edit > Crop selection.
5. Save as jpg.

You can also use the print screen feature and paste the image into paint & crop away. Or if you have a Mac there is a program called "grab" that works wonders.

I saw the photos on Weddingbee yesterday and was definitely wowed.

Are you on a Mac? If so, Heather's suggestions will work--when I do the open apple-shift-4 thing I usually resave the image as a jpeg first (it defaults as a png). Also, if you're using a single-click mouse, buy a two-click (or three or however many). Any USB mouse will work and you'll automatically get the right-click function.

You are all so kind and wonderful to help me through this... Big Kisses to everyone for your help... I'll be busy this evening conquering all of those nasty little sites that tried to keep me at bay--- and ready to share tomorrow.... THANKS AGAIN

I'm on a Mac, so I can't right-click.... when I see an image online that I want to save for myself, I simply drag it onto my desktop, and voila! There it is :-)

Just wanted to point out that many of these sites are no right-click for a reason. The artists and designers who own them aren't trying to be nasty - unfortunately the web has made it very easy for unscrupulous individuals to take other people's hard work and use it as their own.

Not trying to be a wet blanket, just saying that just because these people have disabled right-click to make it a little harder for other people to grab their work doesn't mean they're being 'nasty'...

ANON:

Point well taken. I completely agree that creative copywrighting is a huge issue-esp over the internet. I suppose that my little *comment* was more a fit of frustration, as my intentions for the photos is more to showcase and boast about the owner than anything else... thus I was seeking a loophole around such security measures... but none the less, I understand and respect why they are in place.
