Step #9 — Uploading to Microstock Sites
The thing you need to thing about here is how am I going to get my images up. There are some sites that will help you get your images out to stock sites ie. Pickworkflow. The idea is great, but we had trouble with the interface. IF you are uploading to iStock, DeepMeta is really awesome!
Once you’ve got the images uploaded, you can go through and title, keyword, add categories, and a description of the image. For keywording check out Yuri Arcurs website. It’s very helpful in finding proper keywords for your images. Another good site is Picniche.com. Both site will help you generate keywords for your images. Just make sure you edit out the keywords that don’t pertain to your images because stock agencies can/will reject you for that. Answer the main 5 questions for your images (Who, What, Where, When, Why). After you have your images ready to go, you can submit them to the inspection queue. Once they’re in the queue someone from the agency will take a look at your image and give you a verdict on it.
