[FONT=verdana,Arial,Helvetica][SIZE=-1] I have been taking sports pictures for my brothers little league team this year while the kids are in the field(action pictures). I will be letting the parents know at the next game that I have pictures for sale, and I wanted to know what I should ask for an 4X6 and 8X10![/SIZE][/FONT] [FONT=verdana,Arial,Helvetica][SIZE=-1]
Thanks

Can others edit my Photos
Photos NOT OK to edit
It really depends on how much it costs you (in terms of film and paper prices). Take that price and tack on a fee for actually taking the photo. If you develop yourself and it costs you maybe $5.00 for an 8x10, charge $10 or $15. If you shoot digital, and it costs you a dollar, charge $10 for an 8x10.

I could be wrong. I'm tipsy.

Some people make prints ahead of time, and set up a little table and try to sell them. Others I have seen makes mid sized thumb nail of all the sheets (contact sheet), big enough pics that the parents can see them. And then have a price list for the different sizes the parents can order. The contact sheet is the cheaper method.

At organized bike rides and runs around here, they often have a photographer concession, I guess, and they make 5x7 prints of all their shots, and then have them up at the finish, so you can find yourself and if you like the shot, buy it on the spot. I assume that makes for more impulse buys, but it strikes me as a fairly big waste of printing.
If you're just doing photos for the one team, I'd recommend the contact sheet method. Or ask the coach; he might have a better feel for the parents on his team.

Do a search in your help file for collages. The newer version has it. Not sure if yours does.

Try Kodaks, easyshare software from their site. It has some collage features, not sure how many. But its free! If you don't like it just delete the program and try again. :)
