By: Last Updated: September 10, 2012

Ever attend an event around town and wish you had something to remember it by? Perhaps your camera died at your child’s football game, right as they made the winning pass. Check out our photos- what you’re looking for may be there, as LaPorteCountyLife is working on compiling photos of all the GOOD happening around the county, from parades to races, art events, and school programs. View all the photos online at

Even better, all of the photos we take are available for purchase, through our photo host, SmugMug. Browsing the photos is easy, as we place each gallery into categories: Business, Sports, Health, Community, and Entertainment.

Within each gallery, you can click to view individual photos, as well as add them to your virtual cart for purchase, with the “Buy” button in the upper right corner. There you can purchase the photo individually or purchase multiple photos from the gallery.

After clicking the “Buy” button, a box is opened, which allows you to choose various print sizes, types of paper that your photo will be printed on, and the number of prints you’d like. You can also choose to buy a digital copy of the photo or have the photo put on a variety of merchandise, such as puzzles, coffee mugs, bags, and so much more! When you’re down selecting your purchases, simply click “Checkout” to enter payment information or “Back to Photos” to select more photos for purchase.

When you checkout, you’ll be able to see and edit your shopping cart, so you know exactly what your order will entail. Also, the crop on the photos can be adjusted so you can zoom in on a particular part of the image or print the entirety of the image. Once you have determined your cart is accurate, click the “Checkout” button to finish your transaction.

The next screen will prompt you to enter the address where you would like the photos and/or gifts shipped to. Once you enter all the necessary information, click “Shipping Options” to continue.

The following screen allows you to choose which shipping method you would prefer, shipping via the US Postal Service or UPS.

The final screens allow you to enter payment information and allow you to review your order one last time before the final submit.

We strive to make this process as easy as possible. However, if any issues arise, you can either contact the very helpful help department at contact the very helpful help department at SmugMug, if it’s a site issue, or give us a call at 219.707.5023.
