This time I just want to call your attention about an important issue that many don't give much importance to it! Others might not know about it's importance!
It's simply your photo name!!!
Yes photo name makes a part of commercialising your photo and makes a part of it's success!
Many photographers upload series of photos about the same subject and they don't pay attention that some shots don't fit the subject or the action! Just because it's for the same model and uploaded with the same serie doesn't make it fit with the title or name!
Such a mistake might affect your sales for that photo...
(I'm not going to give any example about bad naming photos obviously!)
Some photographers use the name to explain the photo before the description, which helps buyer to get there...
Few weeks ago a friend of mine has joined a company that sells natural products and stuff for diet...
As a salesman, his first challange was to make a presentation in PowerPoint to present the company & it's products and show an argument based on what he learned during his training...
He asked me help as computers never been his strong point, on the contrary of his sales skills!
Well he brought me some photographs that he found on the net to use in his presentation, the text and a scan of the product that the company gave him also!
In these cases I don't like to face people immediately with the copy rights issue! It's not that I am afraid to speak about it, but it's better to convince people than confronting them with your firm opinion! At least that's how I like to do it... If I can't convince...
Glad you nipped that marriage proposal in the bud!!! (do you understand that saying?) Anyway, I do think you should do a (maybe purple) male to go with the female. Why be so sexist, the pair would look cute in the bar area/kitchen of a home or business and I love your babies, too!

Let me tell you sonny... let me tell you straight
You kids today ain't never had it tough
Always had everything handed to you on a silver plate
You lazy brats think nothing's good enough
Well, nobody ever drove me to school when it was ninety degrees below
We had to walk buck naked through forty miles of snow
Worked in the coal mines twenty two hours a day for just half a cent
Had to sell me internal organs just to pay the rent
When I was your age. When I was your age
When I was your age. When I was your age
Let me tell you something, you whiny little snot
There's something wrong with all you kids today
You just don't appreciate all the things you've got
We were hungry, broken and miserable and we liked it fine that...
No I didn't mean I had 100 sales! Maybe one day I hope :))
I'm on the other side of the business... I made my first 100 downloads from DT as a buyer! I love to use photos for everything!
Showing my e-mails with unique images! Use them on the sites I do as a webdesigner!
I have a plan to insert new photos on my sites, even with out a return from the client! Believe me my clients love that & they appreciate my work more & more! By time they arrange more work & of course a financial return!
Mid term marketing plan if you want to call it like this! ;)
From what I noticed people get more interested when you illustrate what you say in a simple photo! (Joke, Alert, Facts, Opinion... etc.)
I'll leave you with SOME photos from my downloads & please don't ask me if I downloaded any of your's!...
Here in Australia we suffered a little with the swine flu. What was most worrying was the normal flu I got, in Spring, and despite I had a flu vaccination. I am a very clean person, but the flu I got knocked me around for over 6 weeks.
