    I love taking nature photos, I might not be great but I enjoy it. I finally think I'v settled on this simple layout for my site and think the simplicity of listing my photos by categories is a perfect way for me. Do I need to add more than the photographer and contact link at the top? I want to add the capability for viewers to purchase prints, I'm not sure if I should just keep that simple and offer only one size and price or not. Please view and share your wisdom.

    Thank you so much.

    First of all, lovely photos! You're very talented.
    I think you're fine with just the about and contact info at the top.
    As far as selling photos, possibly just start out selling one or two sizes. Instead of a PayPal button by each photo, maybe give the option to 'add to cart' then have a shopping cart icon up near the header. Once shoppers have chosen their photos they can click on the shopping cart and from there pay via PayPal?
    One final note, maybe play around with a larger font for the photo captions.
    Best of luck, looking good so far!

    @WPyogi - why do I have to familiarize myself? I'm pretty sure I know a lot about it.

    I clicked the "Like" button for "The Bridge" and got a login popup. I do not know how to handle that kind of thing, but maybe give that some thought. Overall, I enjoy your candor in your captions.

    Thank you lee. Does anyone know if I can set it so people don't have to login to like a post?

    And a way so when they get an email saying I posted that the image shows up in the email? Right now just the post title and text shows in the emails.

    Thank you

    Sorry for the delay, but here's a good cart plugin. http://ithemes.com/exchange/
    Really easy to use, free download and then you can buy some addons if you need them.
    Good luck!

    You should take advantage of pinterest, instagram, facebook and such to build an audience. Also, you might want to talk about the photos a bit.
