Zenfolio

Double Check the Zenfolio Album

  • Set to ‘Private’ any duplicate photos or photos that look similar
  • Set to ‘Private’ shots of people sleeping in the audience
  • Set to ‘Private’ any unflattering photo. Ask yourself if you would like to be tagged on Facebook if that was a photo of you? If the answer is no, then it is unflattering.

Photos

  • Make sure to crop photos to the correct aspect ratio
  • Always caption photos
