size matters ?

I use a sony a-700 with 12,2 megapixels at the moment.Is it an advantage to have more megapixels (bigger format / full frame) or perhaps a disadvantage if you have pictures twice as big for having better sales ? continue reading

resolution a big deal

I have been very fortunate with my relatively small portfolio and I actually just passed the 50 upload mark.I am very curious to know and hear opinions about the resolution of images in general.The majority of my photos are 6.1 megapixels.Does this lower resolution affect buyers decisions?I see images in a wide range but rarely see them below 8 megapixels.I am going to keep uploading.I understand that the quality of images that I produce is very important.I will keep improving,... continue reading

Mind the size

I just wanted to share a personal observation with the rest of the contributors. Maybe a lot of you are already aware of this but I guess some of you are not. So, it's about the maximum size we should save our images/illustrations. The thing is that if you upload images with resolution higher than 30 megapixels they won't be converted to TIFF format and you won't get the extra credits for the TIFF size in case of sale. This applies most to illustrations, collages and panoramas as these types of images... continue reading

How Would The Nikon D90 Compare to other DSLR's

I have just purchased a Nikon D90 as a replacement for my Nikon D60 and I would be very interested it what other photographers opinions of this camera are. Here are some of the key points that swayed my decision to get the D90. The Nikon F Mount which makes the camera compatible with any Nikon lens from 1959 on, the 12.3 Megapixel DX Format Sensor, EXPEED image processing, an 11 point auto focus system, 3D Color Matrix Metering II, Scene Recognition System and a 3.0 inch 920,000 Dot TFT LCD With Live... continue reading

Megapixels tell a difference

Apart from obvious lack of experience and technical ability, there may be another reason why beginners usually have lower RPI (return per image): camera file size.(return per image for who doesn't know yet, is total sales amount divided by the number of images you have on sale. Example: 1000 dollars of total sales, divided by 500 photos on portfolio would make for an RPI of 2)Let's say I'm a designer and I have a choice between two images similarly good, I would tend to buy the bigger one... continue reading

Review: Canon G10

I got a Canon G10 over Christmas and it is definitely a great little camera.I was worried that the high megapixel count and small sensor would drop my approval rating compared to the DSLR I've been using up until now.After getting a first batch accepted, with no rejections for camera issues, I'm very satisfied with this camera, both for personal photos and for stock.1. Image quality.There is a lot of buzz out there about this camera - it doesn't have the best lens, higher ISO isn't as... continue reading

More megapixels - "Should I upgrade my camera?"

Contributors often ask this question: "do the extra pixels matter?". Here are a few thoughts about it.What values most to us and the buyers is the content of your image. If the aesthetics are bad, it doesn't matter what your camera can do or how many MP it can produce. This is part of the review criteria and is also taken into consideration at sales level (a very good small image can sell at a higher price than a not-so-popular one with more MP).Please consider the following, after the above... continue reading
