So today I’m doing a bit of a test with images I’m using here @ WP =). And I’ll be using a most sexy* issue of “Gravure The Television” which I purchased recently =)! In the past @ Vox I would just upload anything and everything without every altering size in any way but now that I’m paying for additional space here I was thinking about trying to possibly save some space by not uploading images any larger than they need to be.
So here’s where you can help~* me please! In the post below this one for UTB whenever I group photos together I would keep them to a smaller size than what you see here in this post as otherwise no more than one image would fit in a single row horizontally…so then they wouldn’t appear to be grouped together :/. If you click on those images I don’t think they change size at all but I think for the smaller images they may enlarge a bit? The original size of my scans are usually between 1.25~2.75 MB in size which may be too large ne~? So when uploading here they’re a bit scaled down automatically….so my question would be are those images are too small you think in the previous UTB post? In non photo book posts like with “Seifuku♥101” the smaller thumbnails can be clicked on they become larger a bit and do those look okay you think at that size? If I were to enlarge them though, I wouldn’t be able to keep them in horizontal lines next to one another like that so the post would become longer and wider looking. I thought the images in Seifuku♥101 were clear when viewed directly or clicked on but I know you can’t enlarge them any further without them pixel~ating. But I was thinking that maybe I’ll only post larger images for photo book scans here?..and not their original full size as that may be too large I think. And for other posts like with Seifuku♥101 I’ll keep with the middle sized images for those. Dou~desuka? What do you think, and would that look okay? Any feedback is greatly appreciated….loved really (*´∀｀)♥！Yoroshiku ne~*! Oh and does anyone know how to have to images side by side but have them centered in a post? I seem to only be able to have them next to one another on the far left side here on WP…..if anyone knows please help~♥! (an example of this can be found below for the first two photos of Abe Asami (Mini~Nacchi) and then again in the SKE48 photos of Jurina and Manatsu…..these are the photos where it takes two scans to make one image as the magazine has them as a two page gate~fold style photo.
Today’s gravure comes from a self proclaimed “gravure” publication and “Gravure The Television” is a fairy newer magazine and if you love wonderful~sexy* photos of your favorite idols♥ then I’m sure you’ll love this magazine making it well worth getting a subscription to. Today’s issue is volume 17 and just with AKB’s newest sub group French Kiss it was so much a must have!! “Gravure The Television” features some of the most awesome photography on paper stock which is “gravure” as in “glossy” with a nice thickness to it’s stock…not really thick but nonetheless very good quality paper. The issues often feature a double~cover which makes them doubly~awesome sorry that was cheesy :P!! Seriously though it makes these issues that much prettier~* them having “front” covers on both sides =). An average sized issue is just over about 100 pages and there’s usually an extra included with each issue….volume 17 here having a two~sided poster featuring French Kiss on one side and SKE48’s Matsui Jurina and Mukaida Manatsu on the opposite side ↓↓↓。。。
Also it’s notable to say that featured articles are quite extensive in this magazine…and I mean lots and lots of photos as you’ll see a bit below with French Kiss’s pictorial~. The back cover features Matsui Rena and perusing from the back of this issue you’ll find lots and lots of SKE48!!!..and a lot meaning 31 pages of SKE48♥!!! I scanned in entirety the pictorials of French Kiss (where Yukirin looks edible I think and that’s coming from a girl’s perspective (。ーωー。)エ～へ♥！）、but even so I find that Akicha~♥ is my most favorite in this group but I can’t tell you why just yet =)! Then there’s a cute pictorial of S/mileage♥……and did I mention that the photography is so awesome in these issues?!! Momoclo…seifuku♥ and some of the cutest of poses!! And does anyone else wonder what ever happened to Mini~Nacchi? And this isn’t the first time I’ve wondered that but now I’m seeing her in this issue of “Gravure….” and while in the past Mini~Nacchi (Abebe) was heading into a music career so so much has changed since..I mean…well you’ll see! My most favorite song by Mini~Nacchi as I was collecting her CDs and singles a few years ago…(lol sorry I have to keep calling her that out of endearment~♥ as she is Nacchi’s sister o(*´∀｀)o゛♥） is one of her album tracks titled “Mamotte ageruyo” and you can listen just below ＾ ＾。
It’s from Mini~Nacchi’s album titled “Wishes” which was released on November 5th, 2003….just love♥ love♥ this song so much!!! And just by its title don’t you get that warm and fuzzy~♥ feeling all over (*´∀｀)！！It’s such a sweet song….kiite kudasai~ ＾ ＾。
Abe Asami from “Wishes”…..”Mamotte ageruyo” click~* to play ↓↓↓
And to give you an idea of the rest of this issue and what “Gravure….” is all about they also have pictorial/articles on SDN48, Adachi Rika, Idoling!!!”, Chihara Minori (who’s really gorgeous!), the 2010 Nittelegenic finalists and Aizawa Rina. I would have scanned much more of SKE48 out of their 31 pages but by the time I had reached their article after scanning UTB also yesterday, I been scanning for about 4 1/2 hours straight (/∇＼*)！。。。so I ended up scanning just the SKE48 Matsui Jurina and Mukaida Manatsu feature~.
I don’t know what happened to this scan above but part of it’s missing =(!!
