    funny almost didn't upload this as i didn't like the composition with the cut off SUV, and the sticking out Aloe (which i should remove, but didn't since it was editorial and at first i had qualms in modifying editorials.... )

    What a fun shot, so colourful!!...  love the green VW bug :)

    Don't you looove pumpkin squash soup? 😂

    I do! However:

    Go back to your post; click edit; double click on an image; tick the box Keep original aspect ratio.

    Do this for every image.




    Ahh!.. the double click...thanks, wim! :)

    Very nice image. I haven't gotten out much either. Hopefully we'll see a few nice days in early November.


    BTW, don't forget to put US spellings -- e.g. color, colorful, etc. -- in your keywords alongside our strange British/Canadian "our" ones.

    Thank you, John... can`t wait for dryer weather.. but, we must be careful what we wish for... some of my shrubs suffered through the summer because of not enough moisture... now we have the rain and I`m complaining.. I don`t think it`s the wetness, but the chilliness that makes me averse to going outside.

    Good tip.. must remember the different spellings.

    When I photograph something, I take anywhere from two to 10 shots of it. Especially if it’s something that moves, like an insect. Then I look at each one, often picking one for a horizontal, one for a vertical, and sometimes another one or two depending on the subject. Once these are developed and ready to upload, I go through the folder and delete everything I didn’t use. It keeps my folders tidy, and it saves me from having my HDs get too bloated.

    If I were a lot younger, I might save an occasional few for later uploading down the road for that subject to fit in the “new image” category.

    I have no interest in going back and developing old photos. I have enough trouble these days finding the time to develop the new. My back issues limit how long I can sit at my computer now. I used to have upload sizes of 20-30 images, these days they are more like 8-12. I could do more if I bulk developed, but that's not my style.

    So what do you do? Save everything that’s in focus with no glaring faults? Or only save what you've chosen to upload at this time?

    For myself, when I first got into stock, those early few years, I tended to save everything. No longer.

    Up until lately, I`ve been a very lazy cataloger. I saved everything.  I quickly scanned my shoot for that day and picked a few for developing, then went out the next day and did the same thing.  This was before I got into stock and was only uploading to a POD.  This has been going on for 10 years... Now I find myself in the position of going back over all my horrid shots and eliminating them once and for all and hopefully finding a few gems that I hadn`t even looked at before.  I`m looking forward to getting a new camera, so want to clean up the archives... it`s a daunting task, but I plan to be ruthless.  Once this have been taken care of, I plan on only keeping two or three of each subject regardless of how in focus my subject is.


    Betty, you`ve got the right idea to go back over your folder right away and clean it up, otherwise..... well, you can see the pickle I`m in.. lol.

  6. Betty, your question got me thinking about my own negatives and slides so did some digging and found this website... really easy to understand... and in answer to your 4000 dpi question the answer is yes.

    One day I hope to scan all my archived (read stored in a shoe box) slides and negatives.

  7. I was about to comment earlier when I go called away... I was going to say I use Fine Art America (Pixels.com) and have been there for a number of years with business starting to pick up.  I just received notice of a small sale there a few days ago and membership is very reasonable. On average I get 5-6 sales a year and do very little self-promotion.  I`m in the process of updating some of my older work there as well as enlarging my portfolio here on Alamy.
