    Good luck printing it if it's noisy at 800px tall. (Read as: the quality is too low.) Perhaps you have higher resolution images?

    There's no need to scribble on the photos to display them online. Even if I were to print that picture to get anything acceptable out of it it would be smaller than 6x4. The resolution of online images are far from those required for a sellable print.

    The image itself looks a bit blurry, already at this resolution.

    It doesn't matter what you save it as providing the compression fits. I use high quality JPEGs and never have any issues.

    Place to Start -> Questions that Need to Be Answered:

    (1) Have you thought about how to get your name/work out there?
    (2) Is there a specific type of photography that you do that would help narrow down (1)?
    (3) Do you have a website to help with (1) and to clarify (2)?

    Also, no offense, but if you're asking about resolution and the difference between JPG and GIF, you should probably be doing some more basic research before you look into how to sell your work. Such as learning about image types (RAW, TIFF, JPG, etc.). And resolution (pixels per inch and dots per inch). And how photographs are printed these days and what to look for in a good print.

    I'll second that. Not meant as a slam by any means, but it seems you haven't been doing a whole lot of research as far as finalizing your product.

    I would equate your question as far how to save the image to someone wanting to open a restaurant, then asking if it's best to fry, grill, or bake a hamburger. If you're to the point of opening up a business, you should already have your preference according to your talents.

    To answer your original question though, I'm sure you could browse around to several other photographers' web sites and get some prices. I too would like to get around to selling some of my shots, but I don't have a sufficient library built up yet.

    Good luck! And post the link to your web site when you get it up and running. I really like the original image - I just hope you have a higher resolution save somewhere! What were your camera's settings when you took the picture?

    Your camera settings were 1/60 second at F/3.2, ISO 80, Exposure Program Normal.

    I don't have that camera and since its not a Canon or a Nikon I can't really help you out as far as changing settings. But, I'm sure you have a manual and that is a good place to start. That was the first thing I did when I got my dSLR was skim through the manual and learn the modes.

    From what I can tell there is a PASM mode on the dial and that should give you access to all your manual exposure programs...Tv, Av, P, M. That should be a start for you right there. Now go read up on it!
