Probaly "promotional uses" would have been a better choice of words e.g. you can use images in brochures for products and services and email marketing etc but not for external paid for advertising/packaging etc.
Here's a link to their license page with fuller details:

Kind regards, David.

my only concern, which I have been discussing with Benji is regarding submitting RM content (from Alamy, not exclusive) at PicFair, need to understand if that is 100% safe or not

I wouldn't know the answer Luis as I'm not on Alamy myself (unless Yay have finally got around to shipping my images over under their year old partner deal -lol). I expect some of the Alamites here could help -or why not just email support at Alamy to be sure there are no issues? Kind regards, David.

Today I've tried to upload some photos and I've recieved this message:
"You've hit your upload limit of 210 pics. In order to upload more, you'll need to delete existing images from your profile. Thank you."

To those already uploading...

Does the website have an FTP, or a multi-upload feature?  Does it read metadata or does each image need to be uploaded and keyworded individually. 

I'm new to the site, so perhaps I just have not found this yet.

Thanks for the help.

Cheers,

Congatulations Les! Can I ask what sort of price point the one that sold was? I remember you said you were going to try out various prices to see how they went. I've been uploading for several months now -with everything at a flat 10 price. So far, just the one sale -in my first couple of weeks of uploading. I see that a lot of people are pricing their images really low making mine look "expensive"! There isn't a bulk price change facility yet, otherwise I might try a few experiments on pricing. Regards, David.

Thank you, David!
I have priced my images anywhere from 2 to 20. The one that sold was 5.

Below 10, I don't think the price is a problem, but it seems that the site doesn't get too many visits yet (except some images that were featured somewhere else and linked back to Picfair).

Thanks Les. I guess we need a few more sales to see if price is a factor but I would agree that 10 euro (or ) shouldn't be too much to put off buyers (even with the Picfair fee added on top). Twitter seems to be a major source of a lot of the visits at the moment -not necessarily buyers of course.
Good luck with your future sales! Regards, David.

Maybe I've been dozing - but any sign that ftp / metadata happening?

Looking for new options that DO have ftp/metadata reading but DO NOT have F and T in their initials!

Any interest this agency could have crumbles when the small and almost invisible watermark is seen over such a huge preview.

Just received an e-mail saying:

We're very excited to introduce our new bulk uploader - meaning you can now upload 10 pics at a time! It also reads IPTC data (this is pre-added metadata like titles, tags and captions), so the whole uploading process has just got a lot easier!


Unfortunately I am a lot less excited than them, as I wouldn't call "10 pics at a time" bulk.
I guess I'll wait for FTP, possibly forever.

Actually, 10 pics at a time is a great improvement, but the main thing is that they added the ability to read the IPTC data.

In fact, I appreciate the improvement, but still I think FTP would make it easier to upload large ports.

PicFair could be the agency we were looking for - see other threads about choosing an agency to sustain:

83% to the photographer / 17% to the agency is very fair (no matter they say 100% to the photographer, it's not; but still very acceptable);

compared to symbiostock, it's much easier to use (no WordPress themes that break easily) and especially it's a unique cost centre for buyers - we can't ask buyers to register to each and every site;

I will gladly start to promote PicFair as soon as they are ready.

10 image uploader is better but still a mission for ports over 1000+.
Will hold off and await an FTP option.
I feel this is a site that will look after us and i'll gladly get my port behind them once they get a more streamlined upload option.

I joined them today after reading a press review of them.
Just put this in Google and you would get the news piece.  Article which is at TechCrunch.

Picfair Raises $520K To Take On Getty With An Image Marketplace

To me, they seem copy of most photos as of now.  I do not have success story to broadcast as of now. Looking forward to see the avenues where images can be sold.

I uploaded a sample there. Some images got starred and that's it, no views at all.
I think it's great as long as you promote yourself and treat it like a symbiostock and not an agency.

I hope they improve and can attract buyers but for now you can't expect any regular sales.

After 5 months I have zero sales (Total pics views: 350) so far. How are you doing here, guys?


Question to the owner - is there any chance that vertical images will be smaller? Now they are huge that it exceed my big monitor... The watermark is poor still and I'm waiting to upload hundreds of my images to you. Any hopes for changes?

I wrote Benji an email about that issue but never got a reply...
