More advantage of donating free images

posted on 14th of october, 2009

Hi, Friends.
I already wrote about my experiments with free images in this article and since then I moved a bit further ;) - donated few more pictures and noticed that most of my new sales became n/a, many of which were the pictures showed when viewing the free ones. So, recently the time for this image came to become free. The reason - I found a better way to process it and now preparing a new version (probably not for this stock - risk of too many of the same is high, but at least for myself and my own site).
The initial name of this picture was "Clothespins pattern". I entered it's number in the right cell, pressed "donate" button, watched the image appearing in free section and clicked the icon. What a disappointment! Only three pictures from my portfolio became visible near it. All of them were only from "clothespins" series.
This was not what I'd be satisfied with. I desided to add more words in the title - may be this will make some difference? The picture became "Pink clothespins pattern". Immediately three more lines of images from my portfolio became visible and that was the result for which I hoped. I could also add the word "beige", but desided not to do it, because four lines alltogether is the maximum amount of visible pictures.

Yulia I agree with you there is always sales when you donate images, it brings back buyers to our portfolio. Im saying this because Im a buyer too.
