Default My Most Disliked Part of the Business

I love making and creating, but I just hate the time it takes to take pictures of each item (and hopefully get at least one great one), upload them to the computer, edit them, then upload them to my website! This is why I do not sell on etsy or ebay--I just don't have the time to take several pictures of each individual item to only make a few bucks--doesn't seem worth all the time and effort to me. Anyone else feel this way and how can I make the process less time consuming?

Would love to know the answer to this. It is my biggest problem too.

Glad to hear I'm not alone in this matter. I have so many bows & flowers that I made for an event, and now that it's over I have lots to take pictures of and I'm putting it off! Not to mention I'm about to go into labor any day now--and I already have 4 young'ns! Yikes!

That's a good idea! That way you don't have to take pics over and over and over... *sigh*

Taking pics, editing, that's actually my fave parts. I HATE the printing labels and getting it all ready part.

I find that when you have a light box, and a template in photoshop it helps streamline it a bit. But yeah it takes a lot of time. Maybe getting a friend to help or hubby.

I definitely steer towards appliques and flowers that I can get in a large enough supply, that they will last me a while, or I can reorder. The problem with reordering, from some places though, is that the colors will be a little off the next time of ordering. This has been irritating to me, so I have started switching to applique vendors that I know are going to have identical appliques and embellishments with each order. I am going to post a few tips in a separate thread. Hopefully it will help!

I absolutely agree! I hate having to take 20 pictures and not even getting 5 to put up on etsy... It just seems like a waste of my time...I could be making something else! People ask me how my website is going, and I have to admit that it would do better if I didn't neglect it...
