Consider granting permission for any photos you believe are yours (because they probably are)

published Aug 19, 2012
Always easier to beg forgiveness than get permission. Consider this. If photos appear with my pricing information and descriptions that I have done my best to edit, correct grammar and post -- is that not a good thing for all? Sellers and buyers? I have had a request to remove photos which I am happy to do. But information is power when buying and selling -- might just make the difference between an "ok" sale and a "great" sale. So you should really consider giving me permission to use your photos. I would be happy to do a short story on your business, I would include a link to your store, I would talk about how great you are on Twitter and so on. Thanks.
