I’ve had an idea please bear with me I don’t have them that often so my idea may already be redundant before it begins. What sources is everyone using for images on their sites. I have a pretty large collection of images I’ve taken over the years and I’m thinking of making them available for everyone to use, an acknowledgment/link back would be awesome in return.
My idea is to use my zenfolio account as I have unlimited image hosting on it. I’m trying to work out if its possible to allow people access to upload to the account so we could share images.
What would be good is to have a plugin or some such to enable uploads to zenfolio via wordpress. My idea is to as a collective we have the images in place for us all to use and do a profit share on any prints or larger image downloads but keep web use free. I have looked over the plugins and all the lovely goodness on WPMU and a lot of the elements are there but I’m struggling with placing it all together.
The reason I’m thinking of using zenfolio as they do all the back stuff for us so if someone buys a print they do the posting and printing, plus they cover the hosting and bandwidth of it all within the account.
Another option would be, is there a plugin that any of you know of that will sort out the print order side of things for us so once someone orders it links to the print company and it’s sorted from there.
What are your thoughts as stock images can be a mine field.
I hope it makes sense and points are always welcome.
