  1. Pre-holidays PU surge?

    Compared to my two other sales -- too low to mention -- this month, the three PU ones actually look good. Bring on the surge...
  2. Pre-holidays PU surge?

    Interesting. Perhaps the word is getting out (FBFW). I sometimes sell a few prints on a certain POD site before Xmas, but it has been quiet this year.
  3. Managua, Nicaragua, personal use
  4. Keywording exhaustion

    Thanks. Just realized that it's the same "Chrome" that I have on my PC. Thought it might be a browser developed especially for tablets, etc. I guess keywording exhaustion has taken a toll on my brain.
  5. Keywording exhaustion

    Is the "Google Chrome" Web browser any good? I believe it's used by Android tablets as well. Sorry, I seem to be drifting away from keywording exhaustion.
  6. Pre-holidays PU surge?

    I've had something of pre-___________________ (fill in blank with year-end holiday of your choice) mini-surge of PU sales this month -- three so far @ $19.99 each. Is this a general trend or merely coincidental? People wanting to make prints for gifts perhaps?
  7. Keywording exhaustion

    Thanks again. I'll check out the The Souurce. Radio Shack ... I remember them well. Bought my first computer there, a TRS something or other.
  8. Keywording exhaustion

    Thanks very much. I'll look into that one. Sounds right up my alley. I have an Acer netbook which has served me well, but it has gotten really clunky and frustrating to use. P.S. Is it this one?
  9. Keywording exhaustion

    I feel a lot better now about being smartphone-less. Thought I might be the Last of the Luddites. I do have a basic, cheapo cellphone for calls only, but I'm not enamoured with smartphones (or the costs involved). I am looking into getting a tablet, though. Sounds like a good compromise. Any suggestions for an inexpensive one? Too bad that the old AIM couldn't have been left running alongside the new one (impossible, I know). Together they might have made an awesome duo.
  10. Keywording exhaustion

    I too found keywording to be friendlier with the old AIM, but then I still drive a car with roll-up windows and I'm on my way to being the last person on the planet without a smartphone.
  11. December Challenge, "Taste" as in anything food or drink

    One of my pet peeves as well. There used to be a McD down the street from me, and I was continually having to pick up carelessly discarded packaging, etc. But, hey, they did it all for us.
  12. December Challenge, "Taste" as in anything food or drink

    Timely but fattening choice of topic. Apple pie guy, Vancouver Market veggies, Montreal, Quebec Tofu teriyaki
  13. 6 sales of one image today, too good to be true?

    He's my doppelganger.
  14. 6 sales of one image today, too good to be true?

    Are the usage terms the same for all the sales?
  15. How to improve discoverability of a photograph

    Since the now-infamous "discoverability" bar arrived on the scene, I find myself going back and adding more keywords to images. Have to admit that I'm often too economical with my keywords. Today, I was reworking some old images of cacti and discovered that I had missed all kinds of alternate names for one common type of cactus. However, I still think that it's easy to overdue things. For instance, I'm not sure that a buyer is going to use a vague term like "conceptualism" (sorry, Bill ) as a search term. But I guess you never know...
