The ultimate plan – updating everything starting with photos

Okay, so I am updating it all. I took a class from April (who is @creativeapples on Twitter) at Craft Fancy. We worked on me learning to get better photos of my jewelry to help sell items better on etsy. So, I sat down and started retaking all the shots for the items that I had posted, and the new items that I have yet to post (cuz posting is a drag). Strangeness happens that this is also the time when my listings have expired, so right now the shop is open. I have relisted two items with their new and improved photos.

Next step is that I am going into my Flickr account and removing the crap photos and adding in the good ones. I often send people a link for Flickr, so that they can see what I have made in the past as well as currently. This would make me believe that I should probably put the better photos on there, so people actually see something good and consider going further.

Third step is to go through iPhoto and remove the crap ones and only leave the good photos. So, I am going to be streamlining the process with one or two pieces at a time.

Oh, and due to getting a nice interest rate of 12 months no interest, I also updated my camera today to the Canon Powershot SD4500 IS. It is spiffy. Of course, I am noticing that through the clearer photos, some of my items need some fixing up or discounted cost. Sheesh. It is always something. Makes me think about how the newscasters felt when their shows went HD and every flaw on their faces were now visible to the world. Yeah, it is kind of like that.
