Practical tips for uploading photos

We are a marketplace for digital assets, so uploading a photo need a bit more time than posting on instagram! We have to follow all kinds of rules and regulations, but once we get into the routine, things are not that complicated!

1. The first step is to read the terms and conditions of photomuse.net! In short, the convention is this: you receive 70% of your sales. The remaining 30% goes to photomuse.net for transfer fees (not small at all!) And administrative costs.

4 predefined licenses are available! You must select at least one license. I tick them all to give more options to buyers!

You set the price yourself (there is also the option to select one of the default prices), I recommend it to be reasonable, not too low …. not too much! You set the maximum price for the EXTENDED license in the RAW size (even if you do not offer this product for sale), the platform calculates the price for all license / size pairs that you upload / select, applying percentage corrections.

2. If you have decided to try photomuse.net you have to create a seller / contributor account on the platform!

3. Select lots of at least 10 photos to be effective! Uploading a photo takes a maximum of 2-3 minutes if you have the photos ready. The preparation of a photo also involves a short text for its description, on the principle “the photo that does not tell a story …..” It is recommended that the text be bilingual, short and concise: English / Romanian. An example can be found here.

4. After a few hundred experiments I did, I recommend the following:

– Loads a maximum of 2 dimensions: S and L or S and M; Careful! The site does not resize uploaded photos, which is why you need to resize your photos before uploading them to your contributor account; Details about the size of the photos can be found here

– It is more convenient to post in the product description “the photo is available on request in larger format”; you get rid of so many clicks that you have to make if you aspire to upload the photo in more than 2 dimensions;

– Important! You need to upload a photo for the “showcase”. It is about the photo that appears on the site, with the watermark applied automatically. You need to prepare it in a small size, with the following dimensions: large side 900 px, 72ppi

– Details on how I recommend naming uploaded files can be found here! An add-on: for “showcase” files use the term “_SV”

5. When you upload a photo, you have to check some fields, it’s a must! Pay maximum attention! The application will alert you! They help the buyer to reach more easily what he is looking for, as a result we also respect the slogan “our client …..”;

6. Allow yourself at least half an hour to upload the prepared photos! Make sure you have a good internet connection!

Photomuse.net Photography is my muse!

photomuse.net aims to enhance your photos, it is made with passion and perseverance and, last but not least, with love for photography.
I don’t know if you’ve ever thought that there might be a photo that would have decisively marked your life and career. Working to set up Photomuse.net, in 2020, the year of grace of the pandemic, I asked myself this question and I found that… yes, for me there is one photo, only one, which I can consider decisive, both for my career and for my private life.
It happened in 1995, I was a young graduate of a technical faculty and I got a job as an engineer at the city theater, due to my passion for photography. I go over the bohemian details from the times of post-revolutionary Romania to tell you what is the matter with this photo in question.
We are already on the right path, at the value! How much can a photo be worth? That’s the question!
The photo in question, taken by me at a famous show of a famous director, was published in a totally unexpected way for me in a weekly magazine, no less famous, in France. The theater was about to take part in the Avignon Festival for the first time that year. I was satisfied, it was a color photo that I had personally processed in an improvised laboratory in the office I had in the basement of the theater. It had left in an envelope from Craiova and ended up being published in the first news magazine in France in 1995. The beautiful amount obtained for this editorial appearance, totally unforeseen, I decided to invest it in a personal development course… more precisely photography. For this I had to add a few hundred German marks (the European currency of the time) to support the 10-day trip to San Marino International Photomeeting, which took place in September 1995.
During that time I made many photographer friends and I got a perennial hobby. Every time I look at that photo, different events from that time come to my mind and I realize that for me that photo is like a time capsule.
Throughout this period, I chose to have a job that is not related to photography but that can bring me constant sources of income, waiting for an opportune moment that would allow me to put into practice the idea of setting up an “image bank”. During this time I photographed for pleasure and I created a mini collection of Romanian photography.
Photomuse.net is a concept about passion and photography, about courage and involvement that I set up together with Cristina Irian and Cezar Popescu, co-founders in this start-up that I set up in 2019 benefiting from a European grant. It is a project that we have committed to test and put into practice to promote Romanian photography and photography, to discover and bring “on the market” memorable photographs.
Maybe it’s a lot or maybe it’s a little… but for me it is 30 years with photography, which I decided to develop in the next period in the “laboratory” photomuse.net.
If you read these lines, it is very probable (according to Google Analytics statistics…) that you value photography and I invite you to be with us in this Romanian photographic preview!
We’ll talk about the premiere when we get to the next level together! Until then, we strive to adjust and optimize the technical aspects and the inherent imperfections in any beginning
If you have at least one memorable photo and you don’t want to keep it just for you, you can access a Contributor place in the photomuse.net box! Let’s be successful and find ourselves healthy!
