B2B Mondays!

I'm excited to start a new feature on my blog - introducing Back to Business Mondays! Every Monday I'll be offering an art-related business tip to start your week off with an action you can take on your art career.


This week's tip is for all the smart phone and tablet users. Create a new photo album and upload some images of your most recent work into it. Then, when you meet someone who wants to know what you do and what kind of art you make, you'll be all ready to go and won't be scrolling through a million photos looking for the right ones. A little work up front will result in a more professional encounter! This is also a really excuse to make sure that you've taken photos of your recent work.

Remember when you're processing your photos to save the original image separately, and then, leaving that one untouched, save the image at different sizes and resolutions for various purposes (websites, blogs, Facebook, etc). You can always go back to that original, untouched image and create a new size or resolution as needed, without loss of image quality.

Great reminder! I don't have a smart phone but I will see if I have the ability to create folders on my phone. Thanks!

Great idea! But my smart phone isn't that smart.... all my photos get lumped together. :P

Joy, what kind of phone do you have? Could you create the folder on your computer, hook up your phone to it, and copy the folder over to the phone? Have you tried Googling your phone model and "creating photo folders" or some such?

I have a small paperback picture book too. Did it at home on the computer, sent it to my closest Walgreens, got it in the mail a few days later. Took it on my trip to Italy to show people what I do with much of my time at home in the States.
