The final chapter of Photography for the Amateur is entitled "How to Make the Camera Pay."

Here, French included categories of activities in which amateur photographers can make money on the side.

One of the categories gives information on how to sell one's photographs as postcards. French had personal experience with this because he had worked for the Wittemann Brother's Postal Card Co..

Maine benefited from French's lifelong passion for photography. He provided historical and artistic records of the state's history, and shared his knowledge so future generations could do the same.
