Selling Digital Photos

Include a Contact Sheet

SUMMARY: Print a hard copy of your digital photo collection with thumbnail pictures.

Whenever you are mailing or distributing sample digital photos to attract, for example, a magazine, book, or newspaper editor, always include a hardcopy contact sheet with your digital CD or DVD distribution.

Each contact sheet should contain four or six photo thumbnails (no more or not enough photo detail will be represented). Each photo should be labeled and cross-referenced with the actual filename, plus the CD/DVD name if you are including more than one CD or DVD with your package. This makes it easier for someone to spot at-a-glance whether or not your photos may be useful for their business. Some editors may not even bother looking through the digital media without this hardcopy!
