QUICKLIVE - NO MORE WAIT TIMEFOR YOUR IMAGES

After a test phase we have now introduced a new level of service for all our photographers. The goal is to speed up the time-to-live online of your images while keeping your upload workflow unchanged.

This information does not apply to press photographers and does not affect their online process.

If you only want to show your images in the photo community, please set them directly to "Community" in the usual place after upload.

In fact, your images will be live immediately in accordance with the steps outlined below. Your workflow, however, does not change as a consequence of this and you do not need to take any new or additional steps. The description of the following steps will make transparent how this works. We ask you to familiarize yourself with them carefully.

Quicklive step by step

Step 1:


Upload your image (s) as before.

a) If you use Web Upload, your pictures will be automatically accepted

b) If you use Web FTP Upload, you must, as before, then still import your images from the tab “FTP Upload” into the system, and they will then be accepted automatically.

Step 2:

IPTC information embedded in the file

If you've used IPTC information and it's complete, your image is now fully active and on sale. The traffic light on the picture in your account is green. There are no further steps required. If your IPTC information is incomplete, your image is now active but can not be found in searches due to missing or incomplete metadata such as keywords and captions. The traffic light on your image is green / yellow. This is a new status, indicating that your image is live and active, but can't be found by image buyers because it contains no or insufficient metadata.

If you have model or property releases (MR / PR), then, as before, they still need to be added, otherwise the images will be displayed with the status No Model Release / No Property Release, which is detrimental to the sales potential. As soon as you have added an MR and / or a PR, the release status will be automatically updated without the need for manual intervention by editors, and after the next index update the status "Model Release Exists / Property Release Exists" will be displayed. The picture remains live throughout and is not re-submitted.

If an image is to be classified as editorial, you must mark it as editorial immediately in the image processing screen as before.

No IPTC information

If you did not use IPTC information, your image will now be active, but can not be found in searches, yet, due to not having metadata, such as keywords and captions.

The traffic light on your picture is green / yellow. As mentioned above, this is a new status, indicating that your image is live and active, but cannot be found by image buyers because it has no metadata such as keywords and titles.

You can now add the metadata to your image as before. Once you have added the keywords, and if necessary, the caption and, if applicable, model or property releases or editorial classification, your image will automatically be searchable after the next update of the search index, and the traffic light on the image will change to "green". The picture remains live throughout and is not re-submitted.

Please note:

There are regular post-live reviews and spot checks. If your Quicklive uploads exceed a 3% rejection rate, your Quicklive status may be re-evaluated.

We also point out that, as before you are responsible for the accuracy of your content in relation to the legal requirements as stated in our Contributor Agreement. This also applies to the ownership of copyright and the non-infringement of third-party rights in any form.

As already mentioned, there is a new traffic light status green / yellow. This indicates that your image is accepted and active, but cannot be found by image buyers because it contains no or insufficient keywords.

In the event that individual images have to be reworked at the request of the editors, they are reset to the status green / red "Amendment" and require further action on your part.


We hope that you will find your qualification for the Quicklive status attractive and hope to be able to offer more of your pictures on our site soon.

If you do not wish to have this service level, please send us a short short message and will deactivate it.




Very best wishes,
