    How about just turn the dial to a thinie, so the dodad is correct. How would we be able to discuss fstop /shutter speeds in that manner?

    I don't think I sounded dumb... just offering a perspective from the streets. I knew what verso meant, just being cheeky... er um a smart arse.

    Just be careful when signing the back of a print it doesn't telegraph through.

    I like a softer pencil to sign the backs but rarely ever give or sell those. I generally matt n frame so I sign the matt on the left bottom with a date n maybe a theme or location on the right if it's called for.

    I often wondered if there is a proper protocol for signing archival prints?

    .
    Anyone can make a Digital print, but only a photographer can make a photograph.

    That's not what verso means. I looked it up. You're talking about the whatsit on the thingy for how shiny it is.

    In the matter of language just remember that cactuses is now grammatically correct.

    I refuse to use two or even one ' in spelling the word resume.
    We don't use accents in English, at least the English I was taught in the 1970's.
    I used to like to speak in an erudite manner but found it off-putting to the people I enjoy cordial discourse with most frequently and with great regularity.

    Now let's start a thread about numbering editions...

    No need for a lengthy discussion on limited editions without reading this first:

    I would love to read it, but their site has serious issues. It will load only half the header and freeze.

    If you are putting a print into a judged competition you shouldn't sign it anywhere so that if it wins the judges can't be accused of favouritism. I have seen cases where competition entry s have been disqualified because the photographers name was on the front of the mount.
