Seasons greetings!

22 Dec

Christmas has rolled around already – only 3 days to go – and we’re nearly at the end of another year. 2010 has been a pretty busy one for Colour Confidence; new offices, competitions and plenty of new products to share with you. Hopefully this will continue into 2011!

Speaking of competitions, we’d just like to say a huge thank you and well done to all those you entered our 2010 photography competition. The standard was genuinely incredible, so much so, we’re still finalising the images to grace our walls. I know the judging panel have spent many long nights trying to pick the winners. Rest assured, the winning images will be announced in the New Year.

We’ve got lot’s of plans for 2011 too, and all being well plenty of chances for you to interact with us on a whole new level. Without blowing our own trumpet, we have huge knowledge and know-how, and we think we’ve come up with a pretty good way of sharing it with you! Unfortunately I can’t give too much away at this stage, but watch this space…

Just a small post this week, and it just leaves me to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and happy New Year from everyone here at Colour Confidence – see you in 2011!

The Friday round-up

8 Oct

What’s caught our eye this week?

News from early last week announced that Facebook were allowing higher-res image uploads to their website. Facebook would previously resize images to 720 pixels, however they are now resizing images to 2048 pixels on the largest edge. I, like many of you like sharing photos on Facebook, and I’m sure this will only enhance the experience. However, this may raise different issues from a professional perspective.

It will be interesting to see what this means for sites like Flickr and whether users will upload to specific image sites or stick with Facebook.

From our perspective it does pose an interesting question, especially as we’re looking to embrace social media through the web. Do we stick to Facebook for posting photos (as well as other cool stuff) or use specific sites like Flickr to post our photos? And then of course there are the copyright issues attached to sharing photos on Facebook… Watch this space may be the best message to deliver at this stage!

One link that caught my eye was posted on Freelance Review, listing some amazing images of the world’s tallest buildings. Some fantastic scenes  – although I can’t help but think the World Financial Centre looks like a giant bottle opener… Plus, they reminded me of that transmission tower climbing video that did the internet rounds a few weeks ago. I’m ok with heights, but even I found that slightly nerve-wrecking to watch!

I’ll end this week with something wet. Seeing as Autumn is setting in, the fog is descending in the mornings (and pretty much all the time in Birmingham at the moment), the M5 is damp and dark and the nights a drawing in, take a look at these examples of rain photography from the Geek Sucks blog.

That’s it for this week, I hope to bring you some exciting Color Confidence website news next week, well worth a goosey at – even if I do say so myself!
