Just a quick post to say thank you to all my subscribers. Each and every one of you are so appreciated!

Take a look at one of the pictures of my grandmother Minnie Caroline Smith Yates that I obtained recently. Yes, you’re right, I am named after her (and my aunt Jeane Moline Davis).

To Download, or Upload, That Is The Question

One of the things that really slows up my blog posts is trying to decide whether or not I’m committing some grievous sin against the Google gods by posting a photo. Well, maybe not Google gods, but photo owners and creators who might send out the creative commons jack-booted thugs to confiscate my files. Seriously, sometimes I just don’t know whether I’m in violation, but this week’s flow chart tells me (and now you) what to do before you post that JPG.

How To Edit Amazon Seller Photos In PicMonkey

PicMonkey to the Rescue

PicMonkey Logo

I ran into an interesting challenge recently when I was trying to upload a photo of an item I am selling on Amazon. I had taken some photos with my cell phone and when they were uploaded to the listing, every single one of them was in need of rotation. I tried everything and then thought I would try a site I use all the time for photo manipulation: PicMonkey. As you have guessed, it worked like a charm and within a few minutes I had my photos included with my listing, and it was ready to go live. Of course, this is not just something you can use on the Amazon site, but anywhere you need to edit photos.

For those of you who haven’t ever tried PicMonkey, you can use it for free. I am a “Royal” user, which means I don’t see any ads. If ads don’t bother you, then all you have to do is sign up on the site for a free account and get creative. There are a few things that PM doesn’t make available to free users, like special fonts and such. But more than enough goodies to do what you want.
