OWA Gala Dinner Photos Available
by Janet Crane

Our event photographer, Lisa Lefkowitz, has arranged for the photographs of OWA's Gala Dinner to be available for purchase from the Pictage.com website. We have a set of proofs that includes casual shots of individuals and small groups, views of the room with the lovely table settings, and, of course, the large group shots. The photos are terrific and will make great mementos. The website is available until mid-September 2003.

To view the photographs, log on to www.pictage.com. Register your name and email address. Search by our event name "OWA 30th Anniversary Party." You can then browse amongst the photos, which are grouped by location, candids, groups, and speeches. To buy a photo, simply click on the shopping cart icon under it.

The photographs are high resolution digital prints. You can also choose the size from the first group of sizes listed under "Final Prints." The sizes range from 3.5"x5" to 10"x15". (The second and third categories of print size do not apply.) There are also buttons to crop, zoom in, change from vertical to horizontal, etc. The format of the final print is illustrated to be sure you have it right. I spent a bit of time with Customer Support on the phone and got the hang of how to manipulate these instructions. The software is very clever but needs patience to deal with all the loading, etc. And you can always call Customer Support, toll free at 877-PICTAGE (742-8243).

The cost of the prints is shown next to the print size when you select a photo. Prices range from $10 for a 4"x6" to $20 for an 8"x10" and up. The prints take four weeks to arrive.

If you still have problems with the website after calling Customer Support, you can come to my office to look at the proofs or call me at 415-398-4094 and perhaps I can help.
