More Walking and Less IT - Submit Your Images to Multiple Microstock Sites

More Walking and Less IT - Submit Your Images to Multiple Microstock Sites

This is the third of a series of blog posts about microstock photography. In this post I will be giving you a few insights into the workflow I use to get my pictures successfully uploaded to microstock sites.

There are essentially three stages to the process and my objective is to balance ease and speed with results. After all, no one wants to spend hours preparing and submitting images to each microstock site and then adding keywords and a caption – better to spend your time out walking and capturing some great pictures along the way.

When it Comes to Microstock put Copyright and Quality Before Composition

When it Comes to Microstock put Copyright and Quality Before Composition

In my last blog post ‘Are your walking photos good enough to sell?’ I provided an introduction to microstock and how it is possible to earn a small income from pictures that you take whilst out walking. In this blog post I want to continue with giving some information about the type of pictures that microstock sites are looking for and, perhaps more importantly, the pictures they won’t accept.

Are Your Walking Photos Good Enough to Sell?

Are Your Walking Photos Good Enough to Sell?

The pictures you take while out walking deserve better than just being archived on your hard drive. Walking and photography make great bedfellows - especially if you can also earn a small income from your best pictures. If you are one of those people that likes to take a camera with you when you walk, perhaps snapping landscapes, wildlife, historic buildings or your faithful pooch as you trot happily along the footpaths, then read on….

How to Support us

Many of you have asked what else you can do to help and support us. Spreading the word is really helpful, telling your friends, family and colleagues all about iFootpath. You may also want to write a review of the App (to encourage more people to join in) or share your own walking stories in our Facebook group. We don’t want to raise the price of the App nor introduce an annual fee or ‘pay per walk’ model as we are committed to keeping the App as accessible to as many people as possible. Having said that, more funds would be useful to help us grow the collection of walking guides, so if you would like to donate a little extra (just £1 from everyone would go a very long way) that would be great.

You can pay by PayPal or Credit Card using the following buttons. Please contact us if you would like to create a direct bank transfer.

Sussex Hospices Trail Collection

Sussex Hospices Trail Collection

iFootpath has teamed up with Friends of Sussex Hospices to create a trail dedicated to raising awareness of the work of the hospices in Sussex. The Sussex Hospices Trail is a 200 mile (320km) circular long distance path that starts and ends in Chichester. Using existing footpaths and bridleways, the trail guides walkers on an exciting, rewarding and sometimes exhilarating journey around the Sussex countryside. It is the perfect way of experiencing all that Sussex has to offer, from seaside promenades to riverside pastures and tranquil woodlands to the bracing tops of the South Downs. The variety of the route is a real treat and there are lots of landmarks to visit along the way too. If you’ve ever fancied visiting Arundel Castle, Battle Abbey, Brighton’s i360, Glorious Goodwood or Chichester Cathedral then this is a great opportunity to do just that.

Length

The length (in miles) of a walk is an approximation of the overall of the walking guide, not a measure of the distance "as the crow flies" between any two points. This is based on the GPX file that was created when the author walked the route and rounded to the nearest mile.length

Grade (Boots)

The grade of a walk is an indicator of how difficult it is to walk. This does not take into account the walk length but does suggest how challenging the walk will be. An easy walk, graded as 1 (and shown as 1 walking boot) indicates a walk that is essentially flat, has no sharp hills to climb, has no stiles or other obstacles, is easy to navigate (probably along a well-worn path) and is suitable for most levels of fitness. Do be aware that the level of stamina required will vary and you should only walk within your limits - the indication of walk length will help with this. A difficult walk, graded as 5 (and represented by 5 boots) indicates a walk that is strenuous and involves steep ascents and/or descents. It may be technically challenging involving difficult terrain or obstacles.

Please note that the grading for walks is subjective and open to interpretation and should only be used as a guide when selecting a walk.
