When I started this site a few months ago, I thought that I might get too many photos and not enough artists. Turns out that it’s easier to attract artists than it is to get people to post photos. My worry about people posting photos was that because there was no requirement to purchase, they would post a bunch of photos just for the fun of seeing them turned into art. In fact, it’s the opposite. Many of the folks I’ve talked to are hesitant to post a photo because they are worried about causing an artist to do work and then not buying it from them. They seem like they would like to post a photo but then hesitate. I’m not sure how to solve this because I don’t want tire kikers.
It’s an interesting business problem though; keeping the right balance of artists and customers.
