Images

Finally getting on top of all my images…just need too add new meta data ,tags and names to several thousand …oh and export the best images to this site with a constant pixel dimension and a resolution  optimised for the internet.

While I am at it I will also take the opportunity to re upload my 80 Gb of Raw data files on Google Drive with all the new tags , meta data and copyright information.

And then and only then can I take another picture….headache .com

Website

My god this isn’t easy…I have come across more bugs trying to build  this website than I thought possible…the first theme was an absolute joke that wasted 40 hours of my life. I bit the bullet and and downloaded another Theme at a cost of $50.00 ..it seems a lot more user friendly and after 40 hours on the other site I know my way around the menu. Just adding pitures…which is its main pupose of the theme is a mammoth  task even on the new site and with only 4 GB of Ram is a bit to much for both my brain and my laptops…..cantupload/pageunavailable/tryagainlater/cannotconnect/uploadfailed/notreconised/incorrectusername……..

New site is nearly ready…just need to fill it with some stunning images now….easy!!! NOT!

New site

So after months of deliberation  I finally renamed my website from the tedious chrisbirdphotography.com to the simple chrisbirds.com . At the same time I took the opportunity to buy a new WordPress  theme that was responsive and would allow browsing on smart phones / tablets …. Easier said than done but after many many many man hours I am reasonably happy with the new set up.

My First post ….pictures looking good on the new theme
