Hi, I am the developer behind Photerloo a stock uploading website.  We just released a new version where the goal was to create a stock uploader that was faster and easier to use than anything else out there today.

We currently support uploading to 8 different stock sites and some social sites as well.  You use Photerloo to upload to your own Microstock account, not a shared account.  We have some really fast tools for mass upload and the best AI keywording and captions.

I would love to hear the communities feedback, here is a Youtube video walking through the features https://youtu.be/KE2lq_iAuqU or you can signup for a free account to try it out here https://app.photerloo.com/signup, the free account allows 5 uploads per week but we also have a 14 day trial on unlimited uploaded before the paid versions start.

Let me know what you think.

Cheers,

James

Probably not the greatest time to be selling a new stock uploader.

But yeah, wish you the very best.

Yeah I'm with you on that one. But then I'm easy to confuse as well. Look at this:

"Photerloo requires your FTP ID and password to upload your photos to your Freepik Contributor account.  The FTP ID is different than your regular Freepik login ID and is not your email address.

Please note: you MUST BE A LEVEL 3 CONTRIBUTOR to use Photerloo to upload your photos to Freepik, if you are not a level 3 contributor yet then upload photos via the Freepik website to increase your level ranking."

Freepik?

I took a wild guess in thinking that the prices would be on the website.  ::)

I saw that, maybe I need to ask more clearly. They provide a service, that I can pay $60 a year, to upload my images to Freepik?

"Please note: you MUST BE A LEVEL 3 CONTRIBUTOR to use Photerloo to upload your photos to Freepik, if you are not a level 3 contributor yet then upload photos via the Freepik website to increase your level ranking."

At least Wirestock takes 15% after a sale instead of charging up front. Maybe Photerloo will come back and clear up some of the details? Like which agencies, and specifics.

Hey, to answer some of your questions.

Photerloo uploads to 13 different sites: Shutterstock, Adobe Stock, Bigstock Photo, Deposit Photos, 123RF, Alamy, Dreamstime and Freepik (FYI: Freepik a free section and a paid Microstock section, we upload to the paid section).

We also support social sites like: Instagram, Facebook Pages, Twitter, Smugmug and Flickr, these sites are good for people who also sell through their own website because social sites can send traffic back to your own website where you can keep 100% of the sale.

The site is free for 5 photos a week then paid version is $8 a month or $60 a year. Wirestock is 15% so for photographers who make more than $35 a month will pay less for Photerloo yearly than than Wirestock.  Also, Photerloo uploads to your own stock sites where Wirestock I believe you are forced to upload to their account, so Wirestock is 15% forever, where Photerloo is only needed for when you are actively uploading.

If there are any other questions just let me know.

My thought exactly.

Conjures up some odd images, doesn't it? Napoleon toting a camera and tripod as he goes down in ignominious defeat, or maybe some poor slob photographer loaded with all his gear as he sits on the john.

I'm sure others have already got their own faves.

Thanks for details. Yes you're right about WS except they cost nothing if we sell nothing, which seems to be a trend from the agencies lately. Your annual fee for someone who produces many images would be more valuable, I agree. Also true WS submits images under their name, not ours.

Did you say you read metadata then do additional keywords, title/descriptions and categories for us as well? Do you pre-review for each of the agencies and give feedback if you reject an image? Or just upload anything someone might want to distribute? What kind of tracking and reporting is what I should be asking?

That's eight: Shutterstock, Adobe Stock, Bigstock Photo, Deposit Photos, 123RF, Alamy, Dreamstime and Freepik. Interesting that Freepik has a pay site, I'd never have noticed because I avoid places that offer free images. Instagram, Facebook Pages, Twitter, Smugmug and Flickr, (which makes 13) also a good point for people who are promoting and trying to attract views or interest.

Freepix: "At the end of each day, we would calculate the total amount of subscription fees and calculate the "per diem" subscription amount. Then we would calculate the total number of downloads. The total daily subscription average would be divided by the number of downloads to calculate the "per file" price for that day. That number would be multiplied by 0.5 to calculate the 50% rate."

Pete,

Regarding your questions:

1. Did you say you read metadata then do additional keywords, title/descriptions and categories for us as well? < The tool reads the metadata in the photos, so if you enter title / descriptions / keywords in a tool like lightroom then Photerloo will read that meta data and let you use to upload to all the sites (including the social sites).  However, we also have a AI keywording algorithm so you can add additional keywords with the AI suggestions.

2. Do you pre-review for each of the agencies and give feedback if you reject an image? < No, we don't pre-review the images or ever reject them, we just mass upload them to all your linked sites.

3. Or just upload anything someone might want to distribute? What kind of tracking and reporting is what I should be asking? < Right now we only do the uploading and don't track which site accept or reject, but that is planned for a future feature.

Let me know if I misunderstood any of your questions.

It uploads and submits the pics across stock sites right?

Thank You

I certainly not going to be critical or comment on wishes, I'm not a member. This is like so much else with Microstock for now, watch and see.

Good Luck. If this works for people, and makes anyone more money from less work, I'm sure you will do well.
