There are several things to be discussed here:

- Number of pages: 100 seems too few, 200 seems so so, 300 seems more reasonable, 400 better and 500 is a bit scaring due to the weight and size and also more work.

So seems to be between 300 and 500.

The number of pictures per page. Only one seems perfect! good quiality can be achieved, the picture will be in a big size, nice to see and will allow more text to go with the picture.

2 pictures per page seems more convenient in terms of having more pictures and allowing more TE members to be included within the content providers. But seems a bit messy.

The cover shall be a hard one. Opinions?

The price of printing can be affected if we mix b/w with colors. I was told about this when checking the prices.

The notes shall be written in english (a must) and maybe in other language chosen by the author of the picture...(Dominiq. esperanto is ok...but....).

i can hardly keep my eyes open eheehe 8)

- agree with size: +/- 300
- average of 2 per page, you can have 1 page photos but it's also nice to have pages is smaller photos to break the pattern
- Hard cover
- I think if you choose colours you can place B&W, there's no logical explanation for adding price if there's a couple of B&W's
- The notes should be short and clear, it would be funny to write in English and a small translation to the original photographer language

Yes my dear Henk, the idea is to be able to post in english and a second language chosen by the picture author.

Sometimes when picked out as an unusual pair it could be most pleasant to put 2 pictures at the right side together and the text at the left, easier to go through a photo-book as mostly the right side is first visible.

I think we can send some layouts of the book to Jack, so he can post them at a webpage for easy viewing and deciding.

One with one picture, with two, three, etc.

By watching the design we can reach a better understanding and agreement.

I think for this prosject not to high ambitions could work. Should it become a sucsess then there will be easier later to expand in volumes and amibition.

I believe that a book 100-150 pages is more than enough for this first try, of course depending of themes etc.

BW could be used if natural for some pages/themes. The price should not be essential for such choices.

Notes should be in English and include keys with exif data and also postwork done (when avilable)

clarification:

- 150 pages (both sided) = my 300 idea... in portugal 2 pages =1 sheet (both sided), so it will be an 150 sheet book.

It's this we're talking about?
