|Description||Stock Photographer's Tools & Services|
picWorkflow provides portfolio management, storage, keywording and distribution services for stock photographers.
Photographers can easily import their images to their workspace via http/flash, ftp or using the picWorkflow Export plugin for Adobe Lightroom. They can use the site to quickly find and apply keywords suitable for their image, or purchase keywording services from picWorkflow, then images can be exported (distributed) to a variety of 30+ microstock and traditional stock photography agencies.
picWorkflow currently supports distribution to most of the major microstock stock photography agencies, including iStockphoto, Shutterstock, Dreamstime, Fotolia, 123RF and others. The site also includes tools to help photographers promote their portfolio to potential image-buyers on their existing blog or website.
Supported media is virtually all content/file-types, photographs, vector illustrations, raws and video/footage, with distribution of only the relevant files to each stock photo agency.
The site is a paid service, distribution is priced at 1 cent (US) per upload, optional extended storage at 1 cent per file for each 3 months, the keywording service is provided at a variable price with a bid-system where the photographer decides what they would like to pay, and the crowd-sourced keyworders decide how much they would like to earn.
picWorkflow aims to become ‘the’ stock photographer’s backoffice.
