  62 .  Why can't BetterPhoto download EXIF from images
I don't know if this question has been asked before. And it really isn't a question so much as a suggestion for BetterPhoto. It would be nice, I think, if the EXIF information concerned the shot settings for the images were automatically downloaded and displayed.

While some photographers (and I am patting myself on the back LOL) are good at giving the ISO, shutter speed, f/stop, and the like, for images downloaded, many folks do not. And BetterPhoto is supposed to be, first and foremost, an educational site where photographers can learn to become better. One of the ways to do that is browse other photographers work. When we see something we like it is nice to see what shot settings were used by the photographer.

I know other websites for photographers are able to display the EXIF information automatically when the image is downloaded. I think it would be a very nice service for BetterPhoto to do that too.

What say the rest of you?

  Many times exif isn't retained when you save/resave an image.
The comment button below the picture is a good substitute. Most people will answer if you ask.

  63 .  Selling my images
I sell a fair amount of my images as a freelancer, and wanted to see how others go about selling their images. I've been thinking about an online service that will enable me to sell prints directly and/or perhaps my greeting cards.

Can anyone recommend a service that does this, or if you have a pro web site through Betterphoto, are you happy with it?

  We used to be able to that way back, in good old days...

I see that you've been here almost as long as I've been. Way back, there is a wonderful support person by the name of Heather (she may be still at BP). She used to help us in many ways.
One of the things she did for me was to donate my 2nd place winning (the award was a year membership) to another person.

My suggestion is to click on "Contact" below this page, and ask how you can buy a membership for another person using your cc.

  Why don't you contact BP. They have a toll free phone number at the bottom of the page...1-888-927-9992

OR

a contact e-mail form here...

http://www.betterphoto.com/about/contact.asp

OR

they even have gift cards that might work...

Try one of the above and you will most likely get somewhere in your endeavors.

Have a good day!!

  65 .  Now's the Time to Get a Website - or Renew!
Hi Everyone,
Just in case you missed the promos :-) ... now's a fantastic time to buy a Deluxe or Pro BetterPholio. It's two years for the price of one! And if you already have a Pro or Deluxe site, you can renew for the same deal - 2 for 1. Even if your expiration date is sometime in the future, you might want to consider renewing now - two years added to your current expiration date (again, for the price of a one-year renewal).

Note: This sale only runs today and tomorrow - Jan. 12th-13th.

For all the details and/or to sign up...

Have fun!

Kerry

  66 .  Considering upgrading to Pro
Hi! I currently have a Deluxe gallery - but I am considering upgrading to Pro for the image sales feature. Has anyone done this and if so, were you happy? How does the image sale feature work?

Thanks - gretchen :o)

1/12/2010 10:44:53 AM

  Hi Gretchen-

I'll let others that are selling images speak to how well it works for them, but once you upgrade to a pro site you will have image pricing tools in your Deluxe admin center. Once an image is priced it is up for sale on your site.

You'll need a free Paypal account to allow others to purchase your images with a credit card. When a purchase is made you'll be sent an email notifying you who purchased and what they purchased. From there you can mail the product or have one of the many online printing services print and ship your photo.

I hope this helps!

  I have used the selling feature a few times and it works pretty good. There are a couple of instances where I use it, one is if the client wants to purchase some of their portraits but can't or doesn't want to pay with cash or check. The other was for a school group shot. I set it up in a private password protected gallery (also available in the Pro Site) with the purchase link so that anyone from that group can see them and purchase individually instead of all of them trying to come up with money and an order all at the same time. This also works for scenic photography also.

As far as how it works, you can set up prices for any number of sizes. Once the person clicks on the purchase icon, they are taken to a screen that shows them the different print sizes and prices for each size. They can then pay with a CC and it sends you an email notifying you that someone has purchased a particular image. It gives you which image, the size they want, their name, and their mailing address. It does not give you their CC info since Paypal does all that for you so they can be comforted that you never see their CC info.

Now with paypal you will have to set up an account with them if you don't already have one and link a bank account so that you can deposit the money into that account.

The only problem I have with it is that paypal charges a fee for each cc purchase but that is how paypal makes money. Their fee is 1.9-2.9% of the transaction + $.30. So if you were charging $20 for an image and someone paid through paypal with a cc, you would get $19.12 because $20-2.9%-$.30=19.12.

Hope this makes sense. The short answer though is I use it quite often and it works well.

  I just upgraded tonight b/c of the 2 for 1 sale. I went from deluxe to pro, but my site originally expired 9/8/10 now it says 9/8/12 which extends the 2 years, but I don't know if I will be able to use the pro until 9/8 or 9/9/10 because that was when my deluxe site that I originally had expired.

  i checked again, I do not have pro features yet. when I click on upgrading it gives me a purchase price of 150 which is the diff in price btwn the deluxe and pro sites for a one year period...since I have used the deluxe site from Sept 8 thru today, I shdnt be paying the full year...one time I brought up the upgrade it did in fact allocate only the months I wd be using the upgraded features and not charge the full year, so something must be wrong w/ the site. I can email support about it or wait to see what happens in september! but that's along time from now...

  Hi Daniele:

Yes, you can! If your logo is uploaded to your site as a jpg file, you can then choose to add it as your home page image or use a little HTML coding to add it to your home page welcome blurb, or anywhere on your site, for that matter, that has a text box. If you would like additional information please shoot me an email at amy@betterphoto.com and I will be happy to help you further. Thanks!

  Hi Daniele:

If you are adding external music to your site, no, there is not a way to show the artist's name.

  70 .  How to categorize gallery
I would like to know how to categorize the first page of my gallery: landscape, EP's, flowers and so on. Also how do you move a photo that won a Finalist Award to the fromt from the back of your gallery Thank you, Merna Nobile

12/31/2009 1:29:24 PM

  Hi Merna,
It sounds like you are wanting to create individual albums for your gallery, which would then feature the individual album "covers" for each category on your first page. You can create albums as follows:

1: Click on the Basic Membership tab in your member center (upper right tool bar).

2: Click on the Photo Albums link under "Basic Better Pholio" in the left column of the page.

3: Here you'll see the albums set up. Choose your first album name & description, and then select an image for the album cover that will appear in your gallery.(Once you’ve selected a cover image, be sure you see the 6 digit ID number appearing in the “Album Cover ID” box.)

4: Now hit the "Create Album" button, and a thumbnail image of your first album will now display along with control links for that album.

4 Your next step will be to add your selected photos for that album. We suggest using the newer “Quick Add Photos To Albums” link in the left-hand column, which allows adding multiple photos to your album(s) at the same time.

5: After you've placed your images in one or more albums, use the options links to the right of each album, to edit and sort images for that album.

6: One final note: Our system displays your albums alphabetically in your gallery. If you wish to change that order, you'll need to either title your albums differently, or use a number in front of the title... such as 1: Sports 2: Nature, etc.

Regarding moving an image to the front of your gallery: If you have no albums, click on the "Better Photos" tab on your member center tool bar, and then use the "Photo Sort Order" link in the left column. Here you can drag and drop your displayed images into any order you wish them to appear.

To arrange your images once you have created albums, Click on the "Photo Albums" link as descriobed above in step 5. (You will see a "Photo Sort Order" option in the menu to the right of each album you have created.)

If you have any further questions, just let me know and I will be glad to assist you further.

Regards,
Brian Lobdell
