Software for Contributors?

posted on 24th of august, 2007

Uploading pictures, editing them, submitting them is a huge job. If photography is taking one hour for a subject, uploading that photography takes double or more time considering the post editing aspects of a contributor here.

If there are any software developers among the contributors or regular buyers also, why not develop a software for DT contributors to make the contribution process more easier and maybe even when offline. Like editing all the data, selection of categories and things like that and then upload it to the website using the same software. It can be done of course if DT is going to authenticate them considering some rules about uploading images, categories, limit of keywords and more technical things which we might not know about.

Another software which will be useful is a widget. Which can track your uploads, approved pictures, statistics, comments, things like that and refresh itself every 15 minutes when online. It will help a lot for keeping track of things in a single console. I am already using this service from another microstock website and I find it extremely handy and time saving.

What do you guys think?

Well, to do it properly DT have to provide some kind of API for developers... Otherwise this software could possible break terms of use of this site.

About me

FACEBOOK - TWITTER - I never try to know in which genre my art finds its place in, I just create things that make a most qualified person and a common man feel the same level of ecstasy that I feel at the time of creation I would be grateful if the buyers of my photographs or illustrations let me know how and where my work is used.
