5. Stillness — Atmospheric Inspirational Slideshow

The Stillness slideshow template for After Effects is a great way to show off your photographs in a more dynamic way than usual portfolio pages. Great as an introduction to your website, or even to use on portfolio pages if you have a particular theme you want to show off, or a story to tell.

Tuts+ Tips for Selling Your Photo Online

  • Be selective. Having a smaller but more impressive offering leaves a better overall impression than a packed gallery. Think about sorting your images into separate galleries if your styles vary.
  • Have someone with experience look over your images where possible. They might be able to guide you in a direction that will help generate more sales.
  • Make sure your ecommerce site looks good, but most importantly, is functional.
  • Price realistically. Sorting prints yourself will always be a cheaper option, but you can take the hassle out of it by using an existing retailer who will then take a cut of the profits.
  • Use sales sparingly. People will soon tire of ‘I have a great offer on…’ posts. Make special offers and discounts really count by keeping them few and far between.
