The success formula to having a good image strategy and stunning photos for your blog, business, social media, website, etc. is based on these 2 principles:

But before taking a look at those 2 principles, first you need to know a couple of rules that apply to image usage (very important!):

You must know…

What photos can you use?

You can use on social media or on your blog only photos of your property:

  • Done by yourself with your camera or phone.
  • Given to you by your product suppliers for example to help you sell their products specifically.
  • Free-to-use Photo Stock images (a.k.a Creative Commons CC0).
 

Criteria to choose a photo:

  12. They eventually dropped the animosity and hyphenated the hotel’s name as well as the buildings, connecting the two through a 300-foot marble corridor dubbed “Peacock Alley.” Among its perks, the Waldorf-Astoria touted that it was the first to offer en-suite bathrooms as well as room service. 카지노사이트

  13. The hotel was in actuality two buildings — the results of a proverbial measuring contest between two moneyed cousins of the Astor family. William Waldorf Astor, who became the richest man in America thanks to his father’s inheritance, built the Waldorf. Four years later, his cousin, John Jacob Astor IV, doomed to become the wealthiest man to die aboard the Titanic in 1912, built a taller hotel right next door. 카지노사이트

  14. The extensive renovations are the biggest makeover the Waldorf Astoria has received since it opened. But it is actually the second iteration of the hotel — the first, established in 1893, was demolished to make way for the Empire State Building. The first hotel wasn’t immediately beloved, with the Indianapolis Times reporting in 1928 that “people all over the country laughed” at the idea that it would offer 350 private bathrooms, calling the project “Astor’s folly.”

(The hotel rooms, meanwhile, are being overhauled by Pierre-Yves Rochon.) “I wanted to go more modernist…fresher, but still feel grounded.”

    I’m an aspiring writer-of all literary trades (journalism, screen writing, satire, etc)-but I want to start a blog for some adult oriented, romantic fantasy literature. Anyone know how I can start a blog that will allow me to do this? I believe I’ll need a warning page before entrance, and I want it to come up on search engines..
