    Does anyone have tips about taking interesting, well-staged pictures for recipe hubs?  I just have a Sony Cybershot and I can't afford to invest in a new camera.

    Take a few practice pictures and find out what you need to do the stage your shots for the best lighting, background and composition.
    If you have a  basic photo editing application -- you can "tweek" photos for better contrast, sharpness, etc.  I have taken some for mine, and they are certainly not top-notch professional magazine shots, but they do the job.

      Thanks Rochelle, I'll try using the photo editing more and take more practice shots.

    A lot of it is in the layout--after you take the photos. I detailed this in a recent hub on advanced Photo Capsule techniques, but hubber ktrapp best exemplifies good layout in food hubs.

      Your hub is fantastic, Howard, I learned a lot.  Ktrapp's hubs are like an exemplar - thanks for the info.

    Great hub! I bookmarked it to refer to as I add photos to my cookbook.
