Future of picWorkflow? Need your opinion

Video Previews on Stock Footage

I’ve tweaked the preview-generator today so you can now upload videos to picWorkflow, without jpg preview files, and both the thumbnail/jpeg and a webp video file will be built from the uploaded mov.

GeoStockPhoto: The Marketplace for Geotagged Photos

Introducing a new and interesting agency to the stock photo community today: GeoStockPhoto. Geotagging isn’t all that new (flickr have been doing it for a decade), but using geo-tags (latitude and longitude embedded in each file) to help image-buyers find and purchase images certainly is. It’s something I hear from designers quite often that they’d […]
