Thank you for your interest in ThinkPhoto and registering to become a ThinkPhoto Image Contributor or "TPIC" as we know it.
We would also like to thank you for providing a link to your work which we looked at with interest.
Your images are of a very high standard and this is what we aim to showcase and sell across ThinkPhoto galleries. We look for high quality images that are technically good with good composition and flair.
Congratulations for being accepted as a ThinkPhoto Image Contributor. At present we are only accepting around 50% of all applications as the rest just aren't up to the standard for wall art sales.
We would feel lucky to have you on board and regularly contribute images to the relevant galleries.
YOUR TPIC ACCOUNT NUMBER
You will shortly receive a separate Pay-Pal invoice for the £12 annual subscription.
Thank you for paying this small admin fee as this helps us keep the website advert and clutter free.
When the invoice is paid this generates a TPIC Account Number and your images are then protected by our licence agreements.
We will email you your TPIC Account Number along with upload instructions on receipt of the payment.
THE PUK PAGE PASSWORD
The PUK page are the pages where all the PUK codes are. PUK stands for PHOTOGRAPHER UPLOAD KEY.
Above each gallery is the Photographer PUK link that takes you to the PUK page where you can locate the link and upload your images.
The current password for all PUK pages is: UNITED101 (all uppercase)
So, in 2 simple steps:
1) Prepare Images for upload
2) Locate your gallery that you want to upload to - you can do this by exploring the site and locating galleries by country and region. Or, go straight to the PUK pages at: http://www.thinkphoto.co.uk/INFO/PUK-LINKS
We ask all TPICs to only upload their best creative images. Images that you would proudly display and buy yourself.
Please do not to flood galleries with hundreds of average images as we don't want quality images to become lost.
This isn't a standard stock agency website, its not a numbers game with us, its all about the best images of the highest calibre so once again please only upload your best work. We will go through galleries on a regular basis and cull any images that do not meet the high standard so please only upload your best work.
GREAT TO HAVE YOU ON BOARD
We look forward to seeing your best work populating galleries across the website and when we have any queries or successful sales of your images we will contact you to let you know the details and collect information to forward your payment.
We think we have made the process of Image preparation and uploading easy. However, should you have any queries please just email us using your TPIC Account Number in all correspondence.
Once again thank you for being part of the TPIC Community and being part of the journey.
Please follow our public FB page at: https://www.facebook.com/ThinkPhotoAgency/
We will be showcasing and sharing some of your images on this page over the coming days.
I will also invite you to the closed TPIC FB group where the TPIC community can share images, locations and information etc so look out for the invite.
