    I use all sorts of cameras, including 4x5 and various digital models (Canon) even iPhones. The majority of my sales are from digital files from various Canon models. However, I’ve sold several images from scanned 4x5 negatives (B&W).

    hi Taija71A
    im not on FAA. imagekind has all their
    prices upfront and people can charge whatever you want
    from 1$ profit to 1000% profit. they send you a check
    after the "return time" is up ( they offer a MBG so if the buyer doesn't like
    the printing &c they just return it and get $ back ). they will sell your work
    on amazon, blast you on their various feeds, but they don't have a rep
    to shop your work around. they don't really care wha you upload. some folks
    upload "figurative work" otherrs sketches and paintings, others adamsesque landscapes
    others stuff that is sort of off the wall, and others just import their flickr feed.
    i can't speak for FAA but ... i was going to go there and saachix2 about 5 or 6 years ago
    when imagekind had some sort of a glitch, their services did not
    seem at the same level too many fish in a small tank. saachi had in-site contests &c
    which i wasn't interrestd in both offered lots of glimmer but no gold.
    im sure they are all the same. $wise, unless FAA and saachisaachi have specific prices they make you charge.
    but as i said earlier. imagekind's customer service ( both for someone who uploads and who buys )
    is top notch .. and their printing is as well. can't complain at all ...
    i won't post my sales figures but i'll just say it has been worth it.

    FAA - The Federal Aviation Administration sell prints?
    I tend to procrastinate on stuff. One of these days I'll do something about it.

    This is a timely thread for me. I've gotten out of the galleries that were taking so much of my time and have put up items now on Ebay. I'll let you know in a few weeks whether it works for me, but feedback and advice from LFF members would be interesting also.

    John, I am interested in how it goes for you on eBay. I personally see eBay as a small to non-existent marketplace for art (other than big-time collector stuff) but I would be happy to be wrong.

    Some time ago I made a thread about art/prints and the current thinking of my generation (Millennials) about "stuff." There was a Marketplace story this evening that had some interesting perspective about home decor. They mention art a little bit and how Millennials may prefer making things themselves or simply having their own experiences rather than buying art.

    A quick quote:
    “We don’t purchase art anymore,” she said. “We make art and use Pinterest and Ikea hacks. It’s cheaper. It looks cool and it’s more representative of us.”

    How the financial crisis changed the way we think about home (Marketplace APM)

    This week I am lucky to have sold 7 prints, small to midsize images. It'll take a bit more to get me enthusiastic about the market for art.

    I’ll just add that Fine Art America paid just as they promised.
