Getty/Flickr partnership goes LIVE!

And check it out! Here are my images!

Getty

Not my best work for sure, LOL, but I guess the pics  fit whatever niche Getty needed to fill! (and I swear if the one of my hubby and I gets used for Viagra or something like it I’m going to crack).

I was pretty convinced that once these images went through the “official” approval process the people at Getty would say to themselves “What the heck were we thinking when we chose these?” but to my shock they made it through!

It’ll be interesting to see if any of them sell…I’ll keep you all in the loop for sure!

A few things I learned during this experience…

– ALWAYS keep your original file, even if you NEVER think you will EVER use that photo for ANYTHING. You never know who’s eye they might catch.  I had just deleted a bunch of my files when I got the email from Getty and unfortunately one of the images they liked I had deleted (and my Flickr version had been downsized for faster uploading)! Boo hoo!

– Try to crop in camera as much as possible…I’m a notorious photoshop cropper and this also makes the file size too small for sale.

You can see more of the collection here.

But I’m still pretty excited! And it made up for the fact that we woke up this morning to a blizzard and had to cancel our photo-shoot with Jamie that we were so excited about!

Have a great Sunday everyone!

    2 good points. Always always keep an original. I have binders of CD backups of all my images good and bad ones. Just in case I get that itch to go back and see what the original looked like. 😉 I’d never thought of camera cropping before. Good point though, it would save your file size.

    Congrats again. I think that is just too cool! Your viagra comment is just hilarious. 😛
