February 4th, 2016 No comments

If a picture is worth a thousand words, then an infographic can be worth still more. Good video takes time, effort and has a cost, but you’ll see from the third party facts below why investing in video makes good (Dollars and sense. 😉

One reason MHProNews and MHLivingNews dominate in their respective categories is because we practice what we preach. We generate daily, relevant content on MHProNews. The result? At the time I’m doing this blog, here is how many people our home page guest tracker says are on our site, “We have 3585 guests online.”

To put that in perspective, 1571 is the official total registrations (not arrivals, registrations) for the 2016 Louisville Show, per Show Ways Unlimited final tally. So we have more than double on our site at this moment, as the 2 day show had for total registrations. Needless to say, others will come to MHProNews during the course of every 24 hour day.

It’s Manufactured Housing photo time

May 22nd, 2011 2 comments logoManufactured Home and Land Lease Community operators and owners, and retailers take note: if you’ve been waiting for the right time to photograph those installations, properties and communities, now would be the time.

In many parts of the country, you’ll need to wait out the rain to get a clear day to photograph those homes and communities, but it will be worth the wait.

Be sure to get plenty of photos when the sun shines so you’ll have a lot to choose from when you post them to your website or Facebook fan page.

You may need to re-size or enhance your photos before uploading them to your website. There are a few tools that I’ve used to do this that will cost you absolutely nothing to use.

If you have Mac, your computer came with iPhoto. iPhoto makes the job of adjusting, enhancing and resizing your photos a snap.

But if you’re using a Windows or Linux powered machine, there are a couple of tools here that can help you get the job done in style.

First, there’s the Open Source application the GIMP, that runs on Linux, Mac or Windows. the GIMP can do pretty much anything that Photoshop can do – but saves you the $700 that Photoshop costs. There are installers for each. The Mac version requires that the X11 X-Window system be installed. It is installed on OS X 10.5 Leopard and newer by default. the GIMP for Linux and Windows can be downloaded at

Here’s a video showing how the get started with the GIMP:

Although it’s free, the GIMP has a learning curve like any other sophisticated software. The video above is from a 23 video tutorial set that can get you using the GIMP like a professional in just a few hours and provides ongoing support for as long as you need it.

The video tutorial set is called Create Stunning Graphics Using the GIMP and is available at

If all you need to do is resize images, PixResizer for Windows will do the trick. You can download it from Here’s a short video on how to use it:

The long and short of this is get out there now through June to get the best images you’re going to get. So go get them, then use one of these tools to enhance them or resize them and put them to work for you.
