When processing a photo, one technique to improve the image is to utilize cropping.
Sometimes there are areas of the photo which are distracting and need to be cut out. In other instances, the shape of the subject is better presented by changing the aspect ratio
of the photo.
Over the years, I have found that the 1:1 — otherwise known as square — aspect ratio can be very appealing. In numerous photos, scattered across numerous albums on this Web site, I have presented square pictures when that seemed the best approach.
Recently I got the idea that it could be fun to gather all of those square photos into a single virtual, conglomerate "super-album." Thus this Square Images (All Years) album was born, launching with an initial 59 pictures of a wide variety of subjects. As I create more square photos in the future, they will automatically appear in this album.
Fortunately, when it comes to photography, it's not square
to be square!
