Affiliate Marketing

If you’ve got a photography website, it’s worth remembering that most of your visitors probably aren’t coming to buy your photos. A lot of photographers seem to think if they build a website and post some great photos, buyers will just turn up and start offering them money for their images. But that just doesn’t happen… The fact is, most people visiting photographer websites are other photographers! Most of the rest are simply people with an interest in the subjects you shoot. Only a small group are ever likely to be commercial photo buyers. So it makes sense to have money-options that might interest everyone else. That’s where affiliate programs make your life easy, and done right, can make any website profitable. Basically you add links and banners to other people’s products and get paid when your visitors click through and buy something. The best are always free to join and have a proven record for paying on time. Here’s a few of my preferred affiliate programs that you might have seen around this site… if you’re not ready to join any programs yet bookmark this page so you can come back later!

Photoshop Tips

Photoshop Tips

5 Time Saving Photoshop Tips 1. Photoshop is just plain intimidating for a lot of photographers, but if it can be a lot easier to master Photoshop if you approach it as a toolbox packed full of every tool you can imagine. If you try and use all those tools at once you’re gong to end up in a giant mess. But if you take it a bit slower and master each tool as you need it, you’ll not only find it easier, you’ll remember what you learn for next time. 2. When trying to do something, see if there’s a plug-in that does it for you. There are a lot of things you might want to do with Photoshop, but it would mean tinkering with values and brushes for hours. But sometimes other people wanted to do the exact same thing – in fact several people did, and they created plug-ins and brushes, which they offer for free. 3. Sometimes the best digital fix of the mall is a Depth Of Field adjustment. If you find  there’s something in a frame distracting from your main subject don’t despair. There’s some easy Depth-Of-Field actions you can download (search Google) and fix those images in a flash. No need to spend a fortune on a f1.2 lens… do it in Photoshop instead! 4. Anytime you find yourself stuck needing to use a weak image, consider turning it into black and white! Sometimes we miss the shot… that’s life…. but if that weak image is one that would really complete your set, consider turning it into black and white or sepia. The change will often disguise contrast or brightness issues, and make your corrections harder to spot. 5. Always keep the raw layers on your adjusted files. It might seem like overkill once you have the perfect image, but saving the detailed layer files as well as the output is smart. You never know what a Client might ask for, and there is nothing more frustrating that retracing your steps and trying to remember what settings you used, when all you really needed to do was make some minor change to once layer.
