Children, to me, are one of the most magical things in this world. I'd say that as a mother of one, with another on the way, my view might be biased.

700 Reasons for backing up your computer.

It happened again.For the second time over the course of many, many years, I've suffered a hard-drive failure.

That was quite a nice customer (or a desperate customer) who bought that file.

They'd go look for something else.I have read... continue reading

Eight reasons why I have chosen an exclusive on Dreamstime

Though I have started to sell the photos more recently and at me while only one sale, I have found eight well-founded reasons for an exclusive on an extreme measure: (I Am sorry for my English)1 Saving of timeThis point is obvious. Who supplies only one agency, instead of – how I – more than 15, thereby saves a lot of time. Though by an optimisation of the workflow and use of IPTC and FTP a lot of time lets save, but it is quicker and quicker and easier to send his photos only to an... continue reading
