New Design

On 29th Sep 2011, the site has unveiled a major update in design.

“It’s essential to organize your page logically so that viewers can scan it easily… put the most important information near the top, in larger type, and with plenty of white space surrounding it. “

Remember, you’re not trying to stuff as much as possible on a single page – you’re trying to cover what’s important for the topic at hand. If you have lots of material to cover, or more topics to deal with, you can easily make more pages and link them to this one.”

- Ed Tittel and Steve James HTML For Dummies; first edition; chapter seven.

Depositphotos seems to have taken this advice as a hardcore rule to build their new design. The home page seems to have enough space to “breathe” easily now.

New Home Page of Depoitphotos

clip_image002

Old Home Page of Depositphotos

clip_image004

The authorities of Depositphotos claim that their new look will give “10 times better performance”. To check this claim I made a small test.

The word “blog” returned 4568 results in 7.33 seconds on Depositphotos with excellent quality images. Indeed the performance is increased 10 folds.

clip_image006

The results were totally relevant with the search that I did. This is because of the extended search functionality and an updated website core. Every word from an image title is now used in determining the image rank in search results.

Every image size now has its own file type description and a separate download button. The new design enables you to buy an image just by clicking a button!

All dimensions of all browsing devices are compatible with the new design. The best fit starts from 1024 X 768 and higher resolutions are unlimited.

This is celebrated as a national holiday in most of the countries on 1st May (except USA, Canada, UK and some other countries) and that’s why its popular as a May Day too. This day commonly sees organized street demonstrations and street marches by millions of working people and their labour unions throughout most of the countries of the world.  We thought to give some tribute to this day and selected few really beautiful photographs that captured their hard-work in a single shot. I appreciate to all those talented photographers who taken these excellent photos with their efforts, imaginations and creativity to give us a chance to see these photographic wonders from their creative eyes. This list is not long in numbers but I promise you that when you start browsing these in detail it will surely refresh you and force you to know more about Labour Day and motivate you to give them some respect as much as possible. These are the wonder creations of photographers who use their creativity with a different angle and approach to get the result that makes a difference.

iSyndica:Upload Photos to Multiple Stock Photography Sites from One place

Stock photography and videography has become a decent profession in recent years and many talented photographers earn online by selling their work. Clicking photos and videos is fun and interesting, but to sell them is not an easy job. You must have a portfolio and a solid social media presence so that people know that you exist. They can see your work and eventually, interested visitors will turn into future prospects or clients.

Why Photographers Need Stock Photography sites and Online Agencies?

The first and simplest reason is exposure. It’s far better to use Flickr rather than a blogspot blog to showcase your work. If you portray your work at the right place, you will reap more returns and value because your work will be viewed by more visitors.

The second and most important reason is security. There are hundreds of thousands of copycats out there who will steal your work if you lay it open on Flickr or any other social media website like Facebook, Twitter etc. Consider a situation when a photographer uploads his work on Flickr and someone just downloads and sells it to any other company or at ebay. The photographer would not be able to know when his work is sold illegally. And if he happens to track that person who stoled his work, will he have any proof that the photograph originally belongs to him?

This is where stock photography sites come into play. You submit your photographs in various stock photography sites and display your work to a large number of people. Their is no issue of content theft as your photographs are watermarked with your brand and registered under your name. If someone is intrested, he may choose to buy your work or contact you directly.

About iSyndica

iSyndica is a cloud based media distribution company which helps users to promote, syndicate and track their content on multiple established channels. This includes 25 most popular stock photography sites, 7 video agencies and 10 stock illustration agencies.

ddfrvfws_127fvtxxnfm_b

Here is what the company has to say about themselves:

“iSyndica eliminates the need for you to upload your files to several sites. You upload with us, we store it, we distribute it and we provide you with statistics. All in one place!”

The service is built on Amazon Web Services (AWS) and the virtual distribution server (VDS) is awaiting patent approval.

How it Works?

iSyndica helps you simplify the process of submitting the photographs to multiple stock photography sites, all from one place. You can create your portfolio and then distribute it on multiple photo sharing sites, without losing credits of your work. As soon as your image is uploaded, your image is sent to all the stock agencies in a couple of minutes. Next, go to these sites one by one, pick the desired categories and hit submit.

This is useful because you don’t have to open all the sites and submit your work one by one, which becomes unmanageable after some time. In addition to distributing the content, iSyndica provides you with important statistics.

Uploading Photos: The site supports only the JPEG format for uploading photos. The maximum file size is 25 MB per image and the minimum image size is 4 Megapixel.

Managing Your Catalog of Photos: The Catalog is where you get to manage your images, change the metadata information and also syndicate them to custom channels. Basically, there are two types of channels -sales and promotional.

ddfrvfws_133fzmf8jd5_b

The sales channel offers an interface to sell your items. The “Syndicate”

function allows you to mark your items accepted or rejected by the stock agencies.
Promotional channels are used mostly on social sharing platforms, where you can put your items to show them to a different public. You can use the “Promote” link from the menu bar and watermark the images before sharing them on social media sites like Twitter, Facebook and the like.

Using Channels to Track performance: You can use custom channels within your iSyndica dashboard to track the performance of your work in different sites. A “channel” is simply one of the places you distribute your content to, for the purpose of sharing and/or selling it. To add or configure a channel, click “Configure Channel” icon on the Channel list. Next, supply the login details of the site where you want to submit your work. iSyndicate will validate and store the login credentials for future use and once you upload a photo, the site will use this information to submit your photos to the specified site.

ddfrvfws_132fgfk34c6_b

Analysis: The Tracking and analysis section, looks very impressive and you can can see the performance of your work in different stock photography sites. This includes charts and bar graphs which shows your projected earnings, number of downloads, revenue etc.

ddfrvfws_131f3hj5g4j_b

In the premium plans, new data is updated up to 12 times a day. The free plan offers twice daily updates up to the end of your subscription trail date. All he sales are shown in USD which is based on daily currency rates. The charts considers some important factors like day of the week and compares it with overall trends so you get precise data.

Integrate additional services on top of the stored contents using iSyndica AP:

Using the iSyndica API, you can create great applications on top of iSyndica’s  Virtual Distribution Server. The API is free to use and works on Oauth so you can use the application to promote your work and your brand on social media and sites that support Oauth authentication. The API allows you to perform a wide range of functions- from uploading photos, applying distribution rules, collecting reports, modifying product metadata etc. More information can be found here.
Affiliate Program: After registration, you are automatically enrolled in the iSyndicate affiliate program. Your affiliate link is http://vds.isyndica.com/affiliate/<username>

Supported Sites and Agencies

Currently iSyndica supports photos, videos and illustrations. Following is a list of all stock photography sites which the service supports:

Stock photo agencies:

Supported video agencies:

Supported stock illustration agencies:

Supported stock audio agencies:

In addition to the above sites, iSyndica supports upto 20 customized generic FTP channels. You can transfer your items to any FTP server of your choice.

Pricing and Plans

Subscription Levels and Credits:

There are different subscription levels which depends on how many uploads you do in a specified period of time. You can try the service using the free subscription option, which lets you upload 200 credits per month. 1 credit equals to 1 website where your content is submitted. So if you upload only one image and submit it to 10 different stock photography sites, it will cost you 10 credits in total.

Here are all the available plans to choose from:

ddfrvfws_12685tgpvht_b

The premium plan is affordable and costs only 79$ a year. You get 20 GB of storage space and customizable promotion on social media websites like Twitter, Facebook etc. If the premium plan looks too costly, try the standard plan for only 19$ a year. This includes all the features of the premium plan except the customized social media promotion and secure FTP uploads.

How to Make a Killer Viral Photo Gallery

This post is by the online imagery experts at Shutterstock, a subscription stock photo agency.

You see photo galleries all over the web: The top 10 such-and-such photos, or 25 amazing this-or-that pictures. If you’re like us, you click on almost every one of them. Themed photo galleries on blogs work for a simple reason: Almost everyone appreciates great pictures and enjoys sharing them with friends. If you can dream up a good theme, write a good headline, and deliver a payoff of stunning visuals, you’ve got a viral hit on your hands.

The difficulty is getting the pictures legally and fairly. You could look for photos on Flickr or Google Images, but you face some time-consuming work: making sure you have permission to republish the pictures. Usually this means contacting every photographer or their agents individually. Some photographers will be delighted that you’re sharing their work, but others will be offended if you fail to give them a say in how the work is presented (or, of course, pay them for it). With rare exceptions (such as NASA images and very old photos), every photograph is copyrighted unless the rights holder says otherwise. You’ve probably read stories about web sites that have had to pull content offline after complaints or legal action from photographers. You don’t want to be in that position.

This tutorial will teach you how to use a stock image library to find images you can legally and safely use on a blog. Obviously, we’d love it if you get your images from Shutterstock (Spoiler alert: There’s a coupon at the end of the article) but we hope you find this information useful even if you don’t. This tutorial offers some basic guidelines for image searching and selection, and assumes you’re already familiar with the fundamentals of blogging and have access to Adobe Photoshop. Let’s get started on building a viral photo gallery for your blog.

1. Come up with an idea and a title.

Pictures of lightning? Underwater scenes? Ugly pets? Things with spots? Get creative, but keep in mind some ideas naturally lend themselves to great photographs. For this tutorial, we’re going to put together a gallery of pictures of impressive bridges. Your title should be short, catchy and as bold as possible without overpromising. Remember, this will be what people see in RSS feeds and social networking sites, so it should make it obvious that it’s a photo gallery. Audiences also respond well to titles that specify a number of images, so they know they’re not about to be overwhelmed with somebody’s collection of 1,000 vacation snapshots. For this exercise, let’s go with the title “Photo Gallery: The World’s 5 Most Beautiful Bridges.” (We might go with 10 or 20 pictures on a blog, but here we want to keep it short.)

2. Visit a stock library and start searching.

When you first start to search, you might be overwhelmed with your choices. If you type “bridge” into Shutterstock, you’ll get more than 65,000 results, including both illustrations and images. You can refine your search by limiting it to just photos and sorting the results by the most popular images. As you get a feel for what kinds of images are in the library, you might want to add more keywords, like “river” or “night” or “suspension.” If you see a picture you really like, you can display images similar to it by clicking on the similar images icon that appears below each thumbnail (on Shutterstock, it looks like two overlapping squares). You can also click on a photographer’s name to display more images by the same photographer, since there’s a chance they might have other images that fit your theme.

3. Build a lightbox and choose your favorite photos.

A lightbox is a folder you create on a stock site to keep track of images you might want to download. On Shutterstock, when you see an image you like, click on the icon that looks like a light bulb. Select “new lightbox” from the menu, give it a name, and start adding pictures to it. Go crazy – add everything you like.

Now, the editing process begins. Photo editing is a skill that improves with practice and some sort of an art background, but even if you’re new to it, you probably know more than you think. Do you see an image that makes you laugh, that reminds you of something you like, or that you would want to immediately share with a friend? Keep that one. Are there a couple of images that look really similar? Pick one and forget the rest. Edit tight. Don’t be afraid of passing up the wrong image, and go with your instincts. Remember, you want to give your visitors a surprise-and-delight moment, not bore them.

4. Download and resize your images.

OK, we’ve settled on the images we want. Now we visit each image page and download the size we need. This is a good time to check the usage terms for the site to make sure the usage we want is allowed. Shutterstock limits online usage to a maximum of 800 x 600 pixels. That restriction is in place to keep people from distributing print-quality images online, and it’s plenty big enough for most blogs. (This particular blog has a width of 540 pixels, so we’re in good shape.) For most of the images we’re about to download, the medium-size images will be the proper size, so we’ll download that size. (When in doubt, download a larger size than you need.)

Next, use Photoshop or another image editing program to make sure all your images are resized to the pixel width of your blog and saved as JPEG format.

5. Order your photos, write captions, and place them in your blog.

Like editing, sequencing is a skill that gets easier with practice. To start, you can’t go wrong if you arrange your photos in a way that tells a story, and write captions to match. Alternately, you can lead with your best photo, then alternate between traditional, conservative shots and unexpected, creative ones. Your captions should be short but contain enough information to answer any obvious questions a visitor will have when looking at the photo. (Such as: What is this, and why is it so great?) You should also credit the photographer and the source of the image. It’s useful to include a link to the source of the image as well.

When you’re happy with your images and captions, enter them into your blogging program, publish, and start spreading the word.

To show you what we came up with following these steps, here’s our mini list of bridges.

There are plenty of other beautiful bridges out there, but you get the idea.

We hope this leaves you feeling inspired to give stock photography a try as a source of content for your blog. Be picky, be creative, be funny, and above all give your audience something they’ll genuinely enjoy. If you want to try Shutterstock, they have monthly subscription packages that let you download up to 25 images a day, plus “On Demand” plans if you need just a few images. They invite you to save 10% with coupon code SMASH10*.

Why designers ought to flag 123RF.com

Multitasking is the way of the web. Why do you think a spider needs eight legs?

Oh, and the catch is… it has to be hassle-free. Crazy? You betcha!
