If you're pretty new to the world of "professional" editing, I'll be the first to tell you it's not as scary as it may look to some. For me, the process of editing raw images is therapeutic actually.
There are plenty of free software and platforms that allow you to create some pretty cool photos - great for practice or if you're just a hobbyist. However, I'm a faithful Adobe Lightroom user.
So you love taking photos and making memories but you also want to expand your income pool. After all, this is the age of having the greatest freedoms to create what you love and profit from it. If you ask me, everyone should be able to easily turn a passion into a profit - big or small.
As a photography novice or even a professional, if you've thought about doing something with those unused images you have collecting dust on your external hard-drive - creating a platform to share your images with the world is the way to go.
As a small business owner, operating more than one online platform can easily become overwhelming. I learned quickly in my early days that having systems and resources to help in your quest of growing any business would not only save you time but also keep you out of the asylum spectrum... it'll drive you nuts if you let it.
