Another test with different pics from the Destination Dallas stash. If you look closely, there’s a slug for “one-click” online shopping — a hint of future directions for Needlepoint Land.[gigya src=”http://static.issuu.com/webembed/viewers/style1/v1/IssuuViewer.swf” allowfullscreen=”true” flashvars=”mode=embed&layout=http%3A%2F%2Fskin.issuu.com%2Fv%2Fcolor%2Flayout.xml&backgroundColor=#BEBEBE&showFlipBtn=true&documentId=140911194450-52f5a6f9658caf6fb88ea6d50132372e” width=”800″ height=”500″ ]
It’s interesting how the mesh coloring changes slightly when you re-size the image by zooming in and out.
I tried 2 identical designs, with the surround canvas cropped out, the other not, but I think a design without mesh looks a little weird.
The pics were taken with the Samsung S5 camera, using the famous store carpet technique.
This is partly because the trusty camera I have used for the last 2 years has gone to the Big Kodak up in the sky. It was 8 years old, RIP. The beach shall miss it!
I will have to look into if the new digital cameras can better handle the wavy gravy canvas mesh business and not have these pics come out with blue tint that gives them this sooty look, depending on the magnification size.
This is quite a problem, as I have alluded to in the past. Needlepoint store owners and designers must all contend with this issue constantly.
Let me know how it pans out with this new catalog , particularly if you are using iPhones or iPads — since my tech crew is trapped in Android hell, and I don’t have any Apple products.
They think Flipper, or “The Flip” (our pet name for our “flippable” needlepoint catalog) is totally cool.
So… what’s your verdict?
