Once accepted you will be issued with a unique TPIC ACCOUNT NUMBER. This account number will be used on all your images so we can identify the image sale or query.
The website, is clean and clutter free. The website has a focus on images which helps the customer focus on what they want. Despite being asked we are going to keep the website advert free and still pay the photographer 90% of the image fee. In order to do all of this and process admin for your details we are asking for an annual fee of £10 (less than 0.20p per week)
As an accepted image contributor you can upload as many images as you want.
We want serious photographers who will be engaged with our brand and keen to sell and showcase their best work. We want to support Photographers who want to use this site as a secondary vehicle to their own website and take advantaged of our valuable domain name in this crowded marketplace.
This admin charge is equivalent of just under 20p per week and this means we can look after the Photography community by not charging high commissions on the image sale. In-fact, all we charge on each image sale is a just 10% of the Image fee. This annual £10 fee will be invoiced to you once accepted as an Image Contributor and you can pay by Pay-Pal or credit card.
Once you have your TPIP Account Number you can start uploading images to the relevant galleries and start earning money.
All galleries will display a unique Photographer Upload Key (PUK) at the top of each gallery. You simply click on this PUK and it will take you to the secure PUK page.
Just locate your link and start uploading images to that gallery ready for immediate sale or download by commercial outlets.
We will also issue you PNG badges for your Website or social media to let people know that your images are featured and for sale on ThinkPhoto.co.uk - people can search for all your images by entering your unique account number into the search box.
What About Image Copyright?
All photographers will retain 100% image copyright on their images. The only time this will change is if ThinkPhoto apply for sport or event accreditation on your behalf, or if ThinkPhoto pay you to attend a sporting event or local event. In this instance all images associated with that event will be owned by ThinkPhoto Image Media ltd with the photographer receiving credit and commissions on all future sales.
All images will be covered by our LICENCE AGREEMENT As a Photographer you should be concerned about copyright infringement and unauthorised printing, but we have preventive options to help!
A good print requires high resolution, and we choose not to display your high-resolution original images. We only display web optimised image sizes. When our clients order prints, the high-resolution original is still sent to the printer.
We also enable Right-Click Protection - It still allows the user to right-click, save as... (after they see a copyright notice dialog), but the image that gets saved is blank.
We also use a watermark. We place a custom watermark on the display copies of images. Watermarks will not appear on prints ordered.
How Much Do I Earn If My Images Sell?
The table below indicates the standard pricing of images across the site.
If you are happy with this pricing structure then great, you do not need to do anything.
However, all Photographers are welcome to nominate their own pricing structure across the six main groups within their own gallery.
For example, if you specialise in Photographing the London Skyline we can include your own FEATURED GALLERY in the London Galleries with a pricing structure that you decide.
Maybe you just have a varied selection of images and would like them in your own Featured Gallery but included in our site wide search facility. Either way a Featured Gallery is a great option.
Net earnings will be paid by BACS or Pay-Pal for image sales: Payments will be made within 28 days.
