So THAT’S How You Do That!

Well, a pretty uneventful week meant that my brain fizzled, and consequently skipped a blog post on accident. But hey, at least the following games picked up and got me back into the swing of things again!

A few games ago, I finally figured out that I was able to rename a group of pictures at once. That’s probably basic knowledge, but I had no idea that was a possibility until recently. I was going through my 200+ pictures and naming groups of them individually, which was taking incredibly long as you can imagine. But now I know I can select a burst of pictures that belongs to a player, name them SoandSo(Player’s Number) with the date, and just let the computer take over from there…It’s the little things in life that keep you going.

I’m not sure if I’m allowed to share the pictures I’ve been taking. I’d love to, since I’m bettering my action shots and what not. But oddly enough, my supervisor is quite secretive with our Dropbox. I can’t even share pictures with the players themselves! Apparently, the reason being is that all pictures are being put on a Master List on the League’s website. Eventually, that is. So if and when that happens, I’ll be sure to share the link, because I’d love to show the nitty gritty of what I’m doing!

I’m also going to be doing some videography and graphic work here at the halfway point of the season. Need to discuss things more with my supervisor, but I’m hoping to add even more to my portfolio!

Now if only our team could continue our winning streak and not slack off/relax now that we’ve guaranteed a spot in the playoffs…

  1. Workflow hacks like batch re-naming can make you feel like you have superpowers! It is so satisfying to let the computer do that work when it used to take so long manually. Be sure to seek out more of these where you can.

    I understand about pictures. You should always have permission to post media from a supervisor before posting things yourself. However, when it is on a website or social media, get in the habit of linking to it. You should at minimum ask to keep copies for your own portfolio, because the team website or social media account is not under your control.
