Hey Shad, Maybe you have already found out but in case not I strongly recommend Lightroom 4, for fixing and structure your pictures Lightroom 4

Ahh yes, cheers Mike I do use that already. You shouldn't have bought it though, could have sent you a working copy.........people always tell you that when it's too late don't they?

You should get yourself a free Flickr account too, its a great way to host and share your pics http://www.flickr.com/photos/rogerhall/ And a 500 Px one is handy too http://500px.com/RogerHall/photos#

I decided to try to make some cash with my camera too, besides moonie using the images, selling as stock on Shutterstock, Istock, Bigstock, Fotolia, Canstock, Dreamstime, 123RF and Veer. It's kind of why I'm quiet lately, hours spent in Lightroom and uploading and Keywording. It takes fookin hours. It has kind of turned my hobby into a job though, you really have to photograph just about anything you see and forget about being creative, and a lot get rejected at first but I think that makes you all the better at it. Monthly sales seem to be currently about 10% of the photos uploaded, so I'm making around ten quid per Hundred pics per month as a beginner, so the more pics the more I make obviously. It's kind of a long term project really, not a fast buck.

Next thing I must get is a Matt cutter so I can sell larger pics in the local tourist shops and cafe's.

I now have over 10'000 pics on my hard drive that need sorting out, a lot are crap though and just need deleting. Suspect

I recently upgraded my a700 to this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yqs5TDU0X20 so am really having to justify it LOL! Especially as there is nothing wrong with the old one, Moonie has that now though.

Well, I guessed you knew about it already. And no worries I didn't buy it... I get it for free at work. And if not there is always pirate bay Smile
Well I have also upped my camera... I first bought that tiny little Panasonic Lumix GF3 and it was nothing wrong with it, got very good pictures with it. And it was very small and handy. But I felt that wanted more pixels than the 12 it had (even though the pictures looks great!) and also I wanted to have external flash as that one only had a builr-in flash. Also I wanted to be able to focus with a normal sight, rather than just from the monitor on the back. So I bought a new Panasonic Lumix G3 - the bigger brother. It has all I needed and 16mp and I can use the 45-200 tele I bought for the old one. They were both pretty cheap, got them both for around 300, but buying objectives is the pricy bit... So all in all I have spent like 1000 for both cameras and objectives. The good thing about the Panasonic Lumix, is that I can use Leica objectives since it uses the same standard.

Well, thanks for all the tips, will have a look at them. Maybe I need to start making some bucks from it as well Smile

Lightroom, Yeah it can take hours to sort them, correct them and categorize them etc. But it's also quite fun, so I'm not complaining. Actually I have been taking a couple of hundreds with the new cameras, but not done anything about them yet. I'm still trying to fix and categorize my old picture that I have been taking with my mobile phone. that is about 17000 pictures Smile THEN, maybe I will start on new one from my DSLR.

Also when buying the new SSD drive, I thought about the camera pictures, so I also invested in a 2TB drive for backups etc. I would hate loosing the pictures! Shocked
