These are the questions that are asked most often. If you don’t see the answer you are looking for here, just email me and ask. I’ll get back to you as quickly as I can.
Q: May I use photos from this site on my blog or website?
A: All my photos are copyrighted and may not be used anywhere without permission. Usually we can work something out though so please email me first with your request and how/where you want to use them and I’ll get back to you ASAP. Find out more here.
Q: Can anyone upload to the gallery?
A: No, you must be a member and the photo needs to be approved by administration. This avoids some of the more obvious problems 🙂
Q: Will you be adding tutorials for GIMP?
A: At this point, there are no plans to add any but you can find excellent tutorials for GIMP here. Everything you need to understand the tools and how to use them is right there and you can follow along with ideas on this site quite well.
Q: Can you recommend a good digital camera for beginners?
A: Shopping for a camera can be confusing. Everyone has different requirements and these need to be taken into consideration (e.g. sports photography or wildlife photography is important to you). A site I like for unbiased reviews is Digital Photography Review. You will find all the information you need to make an informed choice.
Q: Why do you have ads on your site? It’s distracting.
A: Memberships are free here and you are welcome to upload your photos to the galleries. Tutorials are provided at no charge. Ads are included to offset some of my costs.
Q: Why should I join?
A: You don’t have to join but it opens up some of the galleries to you and it also allows you to upload and share. It’s also very nice for me to know that you enjoy the site 🙂
