I've set myself the goal of making a sale at CutCaster. Just one.   My small portofolio of oddball stuff is about the furthest thing imaginable from unposed Asian kids but hey - I'm making some sales elsewhere, so there's hope. 

I let the "CutCaster algorithm" set the prices for all my images and while I'm flattered by its high opinion of my photos, I'd like to cut them all to $5  and see if that does anything. My question is, is there a way to do this across the board for all my images?  It would be too tedious to set them one by one. 

(I'm posting this question here because there doesn't seem to be much activity on CC's own forum.)

yes, write John Griffin. he's always ears to improvement of his site. i noted once of the lack of a "return to edit" after i hit submit in error, and there is such a button now. u can't find a cooler bloke 2 ask then JG  ;)

That would be useful.  I've had to make changes ... one at the time.  There is a bulk edit capability when submitting.  I suppose you could mark each image, return it to the pending area and change prices there? 

Two thing to think about tho; the algorithm price flucuates, and buyers can make an offer.

Warren, if I saw just one sale, I'd probably let the algorithm continue to set prices.  I do get some views, so I'm thinking the price is too high and buyers can't be bothered with the time it takes to make a bid and have me respond. 

My expectations are low. Right now I see CC as just a prototype of a possible way out of Subscription Hell.

I'm a little disappointed but will be patient.  I think the only way CC is going to work is for Exclusive Potographs.  My only sales have been exclusive editorials.

I think I agree about exclusivity.  A lot of buyers will probably find an image on CC, then do a search for the title/description on other sites and end up getting it for a lot less.  In my dreams, I'm exclusive on CC and once in a while, sell a photo for $10.   Well like the song says, you gotta have a dream.
