With the expansion of digital camera’s, there are a lot of photos which sits on each PC. If you own a PC and digital camera then chances are you will have a lot of snaps on your PC. What are you doing with that photos? Can they help in your web world?
When I use my digital camera, which has a 4GB sdcard in it, I click a lot of snaps. These days smartphones comes with around 8MP camera, 16-64 GB memories, which has made clicking snaps very easy.
There can be a lot of things which can be done with those photos including getting some traffic for your blog. Lets see what I do with my photos.
This is the very first thing, Panoramio is Google service where you can load your photos. There is a free account which comes with a 2GB space.
The catch is that you can send your photos for the selection in Google Earth, if they get selected for Google Earth they won’t be counted in the space allocated to you. So you have unlimited space as long as your photos are in Google Earth.
Good thing is that user can search for the photos can see the profile of the person who has clicked it, and it allows to add your blog address on your profile as a link.
If you don’t want to use it for blog traffic than also its a good place to create your footprint on earth, you can download a kml file and see all your photos in Google Earth which gives a nice view of your footprints till now.
Just keep building your footprints and after five years you will love to see where you have been on the earth.
2) Photos on Flickr under Creative Common
This is another way, If you have a lot of photos then how about loading them on Flickr under creative commons. Creative commons can allow you to get attribution for your photos.
You can set up your terms for attribution which may include a link for your blog, though I don’t go that far. As long as there is an attribution it is fine.
You can also use these photos on your own blog, I always do check if I have some photos which I can use on my blog. This is an easy and productive way to use your photos.
3) Wallpaper sites
There are many wallpaper sites which allows users to share the photos like Webshots, these can be one of the places to share your photos and show them to world. These might not be able to generate traffic for the blog, but at least will give you a feeling that your photos are appreciated by the word.
This is also a good experience to see how many persons check your photos and how many downloads happens. I also check once in a while those stats.
4) Earn some money by selling it
This can be one of the ways, there are many sites which offers photos for sale. Though this is one of the ways, but keep in mind that its hard to get your photos approved for sale as they might have strict guidelines for selecting the photo.
If you think your photos meets the standards than this could be worth a try.
