Any camera could not have fully captured the indescribable beauty we took in that day.

dates on photos

Hi Alex,



Nice photo that captures the feel of a winter mountain summit. The effect is somewhat marred (and is probably why you're getting low votes on most of your pictures) by having a big yellow (and incorrect) date printed on the bottom. May I suggest turning the date stamp off and putting the information in the caption instead?

Re: dates on photos

Thanks for the comment Charles, I appreciate it. This picture was taken with a camera that belongs to my friend. When I asked him if it is possible to take off the date, and yes incorrect date at that, he did not know. I imagine this can be done on the camera. We will have to make sure we do next time for the bright yellow numbers are quite unappealing!

Re: dates on photos

Alternatively, you could use Photoshop ;-)



But that is a huge pain!

Re: dates on photos

This one is probably not THAT huge of a pain, as the date lies in only 2 somewhat flat colors. You could use the eyedropper tool to get a sample of the surrounding color and use that color to fill in the yellow. Adding slight highlights as continuations of shadows would keep it from looking excessively flat.

Re: dates on photos

I checked out your profile and wanted to note that your "user photo" is awesome. What a beautiful sunset! It is great to now that other young people are getting out and enjoying the wilderness.

Re: dates on photos

Thanks! It's from a camping (nonclimbing, sadly enough) trip in, of all places, southeastern Oklahoma. I agree, there don't seem to be enough of us that get out.
