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
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……..
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.
