@Marius Maybe it would help if you edited your question to include a sample photo so we can see the issues that you are having.

comment How should I respond to a lowball offer for commercial use of one of my photographs?
Indeed it is easy to get photos for $50, although if the OP values his photography as being worth more than $50, he shouldn't feel any need to undersell himself. Yes, you can fairly easily upload a photo to whichever stock site(s) you choose, but there's still time involved, plus further time recording the sale, accounting, tax implications, etc associated with the sale. If you're not careful, you can easily end up "working" for less than minimum wage.

comment What could cause pictures to come out too dark when using a ring flash?
I'm tempted to +1 just for "shot in the dark"!

comment How to get beautiful even and soft lighting on face?
Not only does cutting them out remove pointers to the lighting used, it looks really creepy!

comment Reduce photo size to less than 20kb
JPEG isn't at all well suited to compressing line graphics; you'll get better in terms of both quality and compression from GIF or PNG files for those.
