With that said, there are some platforms with which we have full API integration, such as PhotoShelter and PhotoDeck. These platforms require minimal effort, and images will be ingested immediately upon signing up and setting your credentials.
If you are not on a platform with direct API feed integration, there are other options:
- Manual feed process: A simple CSV or XML document that contains your image’s searchable data manually uploaded to our system. We do not require any images to be uploaded, only the image’s searchable data, with links to the images and pricing pages. Please see instructions.
- Automated feed process: If you are on a sales and delivery platform used by several other photographers, we will contact that provider and ask them to produce an image feed API to automate the process and keep your images up-to-date. We also encourage those photographers to contact their platform directly to speed up the implementation process.
- PicturEngine does offer its platform.
