    This is the photo editing software are promised by Jeff Maresh:

    Free (non-trail version) basic photo editing software – all support TIF/TIFF and JPG files unless otherwise noted. I haven’t tried any of them but read reviews on them and confirmed file formats whenever possible. All have a free non-trial version and appear to be relatively easy to download, install, and user. Most of these will likely have YouTube videos on usage if you need help.

    Hi Crista. How important is it to date a painting?
    I started a painting years ago. I “thought” I was finished but then I started working on it again.
    How does the date of a newly finished artwork effect to date? Is it even important to put a date on it?

    Thanks

    Hello Crista
    For those of us who did a lot of work but our catalogue-system was not that wonderful, where would one start to try to make sense of it all? Are there free templates available which someone may have conjured up? I would like a few suggestions, if you have … Be blessed. Greetings from South Africa.

    Hello Crista,

    My question is about pricing. I have been in group shows but no solo shows. When pricing my art I can compare to other artists showing in galleries that have sold their art, but do I price my art within the same pricing scale as galleries do or not? I don’t want to start high out of range or low out of range. If I want to submit to galleries as one of my avenues and price as they do am I starting too high?
