I’ve been offering direct print sales from my photoblog for quite some time now but just added a couple of new products – canvas prints and fine art prints.
The standard prints available via Fotomoto (the company I use to handle print sales via for the photoblog) are great and available in lustre, glossy and metallic papers. I’ve priced these pretty reasonably, I think, with an 8″x12″ print starting at $24. I’m offering sizes up to 24″x30″ and panoramic prints up to 16″ high for this quality level.
For gallery-quality and very large prints, the new Fine Art Print option offers a greater collection of paper types. In this category, I’m offering print sizes up to 40″x80″ (dependent on the original image being able to accommodate this size) and also panoramic prints.
Finally, I’ve added the option of printing images on gallery wrapped canvas at sizes up to 30″. If you would like larger canvases, let me know since I can produce canvases up to 10 feet across using Canvas Press here in the Austin area.
Since I’m in a generous mood this month, you can get a 25% discount on all print sales via the photoblog if you use coupon code “BF13D9” when you check out.
The latest version of HDRSoft’s excellent Photomatix Pro software has just been released. I’ve been using the beta version for a couple of months and strongly encourage you to upgrade. Version 4.0 includes a fabulous new feature to help you remove ghosts from your merged brackets without the need to jump over into Photoshop and mask stuff together.
The upgrade is free for current version 3 license holders. If you are buying the software, you can use coupon code “DaveWilson” when you check out to receive a 15% discount.
The nice folks over at HDRSoft, the makers of my HDR software of choice, Photomatix Pro, have signed me up for their affiliate program. This is a win-win-win arrangement as far as I can see since all parties benefit – you get a discount, HDRSoft get a sale and I get a commission. I’ve seen several others advertising HDRSoft discount codes but didn’t realise before this week that the arrangement involved a seller commission. In the spirit of full disclosure, though, I thought it would be right to mention this.
If you are buying a copy of Photomatix and use the coupon code “DaveWilson” when you are checking out, you will receive a 15% discount on the purchase, and I will thank you very much.
Despite the mutually beneficial arrangement, I should point out that I have been a huge fan of this software for several years now and, as regular readers will know, have pretty much been acting as an HDRSoft salesman for most of this time!
