Buang jerami berikat rotan
Samalah cantik samalah padan
Bertambah seri dengan senyuman”

For the marine enthusiast, the blue-green mesmerizing beauty of the Tun Sakaran Marine Park beckons with a hundred and one promises of a wonderful experience both above and underwater.
Lying 20 kilometers (approximately 2-hour boat ride away) off the Semporna mainland, The Tun Sakaran Marine Park is the largest marine park in Sabah. At 350 square kilometers, it also has the largest concentration of coral reefs in Malaysia.
This Marine Park, which is also known as the Semporna Islands Park, comprises of eight islands—Bohey Dulang, Bodgaya, Sebangkat, Selakan, Mantabuan, Sibuan, Maiga, as well as the Church Reef and Kapikan Reef. Bohey Dulang and Bodgaya islands are extinct volcanic remnants while Sebangkat and Selakan are two islands of raised limestone platforms.
Although the islands of Tun Sakaran Marine Park are lesser known compared to Sipadan Island; the marine park is said to have an even higher level of biodiversity than in Sipadan. Whereas Sipadan has a collection of bigger fish and an abundance of turtles, sharks, and other marine lives inhabiting its waters; Tun Sakaran Park has more biodiversity in terms of species and habitats.
Tun Sakaran Marine Park is not equipped with facilities for tourists; however, visitors are welcome to explore the marine park’s dive sites with their snorkels and scuba gears. Divers have reported many sightings of eagle rays, turtles, barracuda, bumphead parrotfish, and plenty of nudibranchs. There are large walls and a cornucopia of macrolife in the Bodgaya lagoon, while the sandy areas are home to big gorgonian fans and sea pens.
*Prior to visit, visitors need to obtain a permit from Sabah Parks.

After done working on our images in develop module, we might want to share it. Be it in prints, or to upload it on any website.
To go to export dialog, hit CTRL + Shit + E / CMD + Shift + E.
As we scroll down the menu, theres a title “Image Sizing”
This feature is pretty useful for us to determine what are the appropriate output for different usage.
Let’s say you and to export and share it on Facebook
Click on Resize To Fit and select dimension
I choose 2048 x 2048 pixel with resolution of 72.
Make Image format is set to JPEG sure in the “File Setting” and select sRGB as your color space because most of the website recognize sRGB rather than AdobeRGB (1998). But if you do, the websites will automatically strips down the color space and change it with sRGB and there you will see the image might look slightly different than it suposed to be when the image are uploaded.
Hit the export and now the image are ready to be uploaded to any website
Some stock images requires us to submit at least 4 megapixel image. In this case, go back to the Image Sizing in Export dialog.
Check the Resize to Fit and select Megapixel. And you know what to do after this step. 🙂
Just in case you want to export multiple image with different types of layout (landscape & portrait). It is a total mess to play around by specifying sizes in dimension, width & height. The trick here is to key in the long side for example 10×10 inch or you can try Long Edge or Short Edge, and this is going to put your nerves away.
