I’ve had many questions over the past couple of years about selling prints, and up to now I haven’t been able to do that, but I’ve finally found a way to set up a print “store” through which you can buy prints of all sizes and finishes, posters, notecards, mousepads, mugs, even t-shirts, with CITR photos, if you are so inclined! You can find it all at the new CITR photography shop here (via SmugMug). (And I’ve added a link in the sidebar as well.)
So far, I haven’t actually added a huge number of photos to the site–I have to dig back for the original large files for each one, through thousands of pictures in hundreds of folders. However, I’ll keep adding to the shop, and also you can request a particular photo if there’s one you really want and I haven’t added it to the shop yet.
Also, and most importantly, the thing that put me on this little exploration to finally find a place/way to sell my prints was looking for a way to provide desktop wallpaper. Many people have told me that they use my photos for desktop wallpaper just taking them off the site (I do not mind if you use my photos for personal use like that), but I also always wonder how terrible the pictures must look screen-size as wallpaper because the size that is published on my blog is pretty small! So, I’ve been wanting to provide a photo a month for desktop wallpaper/screensaver in large size that will actually look nice. At my photography shop, you can find galleries for various photos under various topics (mostly animals), but you will also find a Desktop Wallpaper/Screensaver gallery. All of the photos in all of the other galleries have a watermark–the watermark only appears on the screen as you’re viewing the photos. If you purchase a print, the watermark will not appear on the prints. However, in the Desktop WallPaper/Screensaver gallery, the photo available each month will appear without the watermark, making it available to be downloaded (FREE!) from the screen in the large file size for use on your computer.
So, please check it out, and let me know what you think!
