Re: The Local Photo

Tracey and Chris, you will now see I have added a links page to the bottom of the site and added your links in, if you can return the favour I would most appreciate it.

If anyone else would like to share links, please just let me know

Re: The Local Photo

This is an excellent idea Steve, I've just signed up too.
I will have to scan through my hard disk to see what might be applicable. I'm sure Pete (Snaarman) may have already mentioned but would it be possible to add Berkshire to your list?
Thanks.

Re: The Local Photo

Steve,

If we find a county missing, or a town we'd like adding, is it best to post on here or contact you via the website?

Re: The Local Photo

OK. Will do!

Still, I don't suppose the Admins will mind too much if this thread and your site is helping to promote the work of Oly users?

It certainly seems to have generated some interest here, at least!

Cheers Janet, I hope it does help, its the reason I thought I'd try it, as I find other stock sites so hard to submit to these days

Re: The Local Photo

Yes, this seems extremely simple and easy compared to some other sites. I don't expect for a minute that I'll sell anything, but you never know until you try!

You have a lot of hard work in front of you to make it a success, but judging by the initial comments and the number of people who have signed up, you could very well be onto a winner here...

Good luck with it.

Janet

Re: The Local Photo

Hi Steve,

as others have said, sounds like a great idea, and I'm sure it will be a success. I have signed up and received a confirmation email. I see that there are no pictures in the Devon area yet, so I better get my skates on and sort some pictures out for uploading.

I will add a link to my website, if you would like to add a link to mine that will be great: www.platinumimages.uk.com

Here's to your success (and those who have subscribed).

Merry Christmas to you all

cheers

Kelvin

Thanks Kelvin, I will indeed add your link later

I would like to thank everyone who has signed up, submitted photos and provided advice it is much appreciated. I must say there are some stunning photos now on the site and from the interest I have had this can only get better and better and will make the site a great source for buyers to purchase local photos for a wide range of needs.

I have a small team of enthusiastic people around me and possibily an investor to help me really drive this site forward in the new year

So heres to a prosperous New Year and I wish you all a very Merry Christmas

Steve

I have put your link on my site - if you want any additional info added just let me know.

I have uploaded a few pics to get started to make sure I have done it correctly. Once I know I'm doing it right and the file sizes are ok, I will get more uploaded as soon as.

Cheers

Kelvin
