GF goes Red

But in a good way!

As some of you know, I have had a little side hobby for photography. I haven’t had the chance to get into it a lot lately with being in Toronto for the last five years and not having the funds to travel. But I have taken some shots that I am really proud of in the past!

I’ve tried putting them onto photography websites as a way to perhaps benefit from the selling of some of these photographs but to no avail.

But then I was introduced to Redbubble!

I had heard of this a few times and a few friends use it, so I decided to take the plunge. Actually I wanted to use it to create puzzles for my pictures but none of the images that I uploaded would fill the puzzle template that they have. So none of the images are puzzles. Yet.

While editing them, I have deleted the original file on my laptop so I think that for the images I have already uploaded, I can’t get them to be puzzles. But I still have lots of other photographs that are yet to be “edited” that I might be able to get up there.

Anyway, I spent the whole day yesterday (from 11am-5pm) setting up my shop. It took a lot more effort than I was expecting. The website suggests things they can create based on the size of your image so I just let them do their thing for most images. Some I was able to edit the position and add another sellable product to that image.

There are 52 images currently and almost all the images have the same products that they can be printed onto. But if you see an image you like and it isn’t available for a specific product (say you want a facemask but it’s not available) let me know and I can add it to the products.

I have no control over the prices or things – the website takes care of all of that. But if you are looking for anything from greeting cards to tote bags and coffee mugs and notebooks and clocks and printed t-shirts, please do check out my store and share it around πŸ™‚

  1. Make sure you keep the originals before you edit! Not just because you might want to change them again, but (and it does depend a little on the format), everytime you resave you lose a little bit of the quality. So if you edit/save/edit/save, you might then be better off going back to the original and rediting straight to the final version (if that makes sense, probably not very clear). For example, jpg is a lossy format so you lose quality every time you do something with the file.
