That is a really nice feature (replacing videos) that I wasn't aware of. Thanks for the heads up. We just got a new camera (Canon 5d Mark II) that shoots such sweet video that I'm a bit sad to see the compressed versions that YouTube hosts... Thanks!

Michael, Vimeo does now play nicely with mobile and iOS devices. One thing I really like about Vimeo is that you can replace a file when you need to... say you had to make an edit after posting... and the URLs all stay the same if you've embedded the video somewhere. I don't think Youtube has that option. And HD video looks very nice on Vimeo.

Hi Steve. Video is quite a venture, yes. I see you like Vimeo Paul. I've been on the fence about them or YouTube for a while. Does Vimeo play well with mobile devices?

Hi folks. Just found this group too. I was a professional photographer for 18 years before changing gears and working at SFU. I'm doing a little photography for the University and have ventured off into doing some video too.

Hi Michael, I'm part of the marketing and communications web team here at the Business School. I do some web work as well as photography and video shooting/editing.

Hey Paul! Hope all is well on the West Coast. Is photography your full-time work at UofW, or just part of what you oversee?

Hello from University of Washington Foster School of Business in Seattle.

Hi Claudia! I'm just joining too. Doesn't seem to be a lot of action around here : ) I work at Maryville University in St. Louis, MO. I like to shoot for fun, but I have also been trying to shoot for the University's website and social media outlets:

Anyone else actively shooting on the job?

I just joined the group and wanted to say hello to you all. I'm Claudia, I work at Nichols College in MA and I'm a hobbyist photographer.


So... who are you :-)

Transitioning course catalog from old-school InDesign/PDF to web-based system...

So, the "powers that be" here are looking into various catalog systems...for next year.In the meantime, we're now working on our (hopefully last) old-school InDesign/PDF catalog, and I got to thinking...maybe it would be a good thing to do some sort of web-based static page (to keep it simple, for now) catalog this time around, to make the transition next year to whatever catalog system the "powers that be" decide upon an easier one.We have a Wordpress instance and then we have our regular…See More
