OK .... so they really are not secrets. It is more like tips for new users. I know there is a help button that walks you through the ordering process, and most of you are more fluent in online shopping than I ever will be, but there are a whole bunch of features on this site that many people don't take advantage of. Here are a couple that I am sure you will like:
Not all of the features on this site have to do with the pictures though ... Some of you have asked if it is possible to purchase photos without a credit card. First off, I have to say that I admire you for taking control of your finances and refusing to pay bank fees! One of the reasons I switched to my current web host is to better serve you. Once you determine the dollar amount that you are going to spend, just let me know! I will issue a gift certificate that you redeem only on this website. It spends just like cash (because you already gave me that!) and allows you the same flexibility and freedom of online ordering that everyone else enjoys.
Of course, gift certificates are always available!
One of the trickier propositions is ordering a CD, poster, book, or any other custom designed product. Usually, those are done in person rather than through the web. They are listed here to give you an idea of the cost involved.
Something that many have asked for is a file to use on Facebook, MySpace, or on your iPhone. Those can now be ordered online and downloaded almost immediately rather than having to wait for a CD. Unfortunately, there will be a short wait period since I approve all orders before they are shipped. In most cases, you will be able to download the file within an hour or two.
