Watermark Your Photos today

Digital photography is not simply about taking pictures, the editing of these pictures is one thing that make it so flexible and exciting, allowing stunning post production effects and touch ups. Choosing the right software to assist you in this process can be daunting, especially for amateur photographers.

The most popular photo editing software on the market is undoubtedly Adobe Photoshop. Most professional photographers use this software, which is known as Adobe Photoshop CS5, although it is quite complicated and takes a lot of learning, plus it is rather expensive. However, many of it’s basic edition options are easy to understand, therefore a beginner user may obtain exceptional results. Adobe Photoshop CS5 is not recommended for amateur photographers, it is best to start with the simpler, and much less expensive versions.

Your Photo Business Money Isn't Your Money

Your Photo Business Money Isn't Your Money

Today, I wanted to speak about personal finances of a self-employed person – photographers, artists and freelancers in general. I started Visual Watermark as a part-time project while working with my ex-employer DevExpress Inc. It was fun and easy side-project since it yields small but steady revenue and didn’t require too much effort to support it. This year I left my day job to fully concentrate on my side-project.

This move gave me an opportunity to do what engages me a lot and still much more flexibility to spend time with my small baby. On another hand, it cut our revenues in half. I don’t have “extra” money anymore, money to buy a trip to the ocean without putting aside for a few months or money that I can put into business development if necessary. I still had enough to pay my expenses but no penny above that.
