That is my situation.
That is my situation.
Imagine me sitting in a shop with just six photographs hanging on the wall for the last two months (2 months and two days to be exact) and during this period one passer by picks up a copy of my photograph. Now I am still sitting in my shop and no one is even glancing at my shop. I feel sad and depressed as time ticked by
Why is no one approaching me? Does my frustration show on my face? No, actually they can’t see me as I am a virtual person hiding behind a curtain.
Then some one in a red cap told me “hey why don’t you put up some more pictures? Just six is not going to attract any attention”
How do I tell them “look here, I am trying to hang more pictures but the ones I am trying to hang are not up to the world class standards and they keep falling off the wall”
Frankly speaking, all the pictures that are hanging on my wall are from compact cameras
So I have decided to go for a slightly higher range, not a costly one but a decent one. That will give me some scope to crop and make it look presentable.
Meanwhile I have to brush up my Photoshop skills (am still to understand the term “tweaking”) For me tweaking is something what happened to me in second standard when my teacher caught my ear
The reason that I wrote the above blog is to demonstrate how people will be picking up your pictures/Vectors. They will have something in mind and then type out the key words, and then go on searching till the appropriate picture is found.
For example Tweaking ear showed nil results
I tried all sorts of combination till I typed painful ear and came up with this one above.
It took me about 20 mts to write the text, but it took me more than two hours to find the matching pictures.
And finally I did some rewriting so that my text matched the pictures.
But mind you, everyone out there is not going to rewrite their script.
So lets all upload some good pictures which is something different than the ones we already have.
By the way out of the six, one is Free and that has been picked up 15 times !!!!
As for now I will go back to my shop and keep a watch for more customers
