PhotoShelter Newsletter | October 2009
Boo! Its Halloween time! A special thanks to everyone who stopped by the PhotoShelter booth at PhotoPlus Expo last week. It's always great to match faces with names. Speaking of - starting today you can post images direct to facebook! So go get social!
In this issue:
Post to Facebook!Social networks and media have become an increasingly powerful way to keep in contact with friends, family and clients. And savvy photographers are even using facebook to attract new business. So we're psyched to announce our "post to facebook" capability. You can now export a gallery to facebook, or post a link on your wall back to PhotoShelter (this is perfect if you're concerned about their terms & conditions).
FotoQuote member special and more!Cradoc fotoSoftware, the maker of fotoQuote, fotoBiz and the fotoKeyword Harvester software is offering PhotoShelter users a discount on their great software from now until the end of the year. As you might know, we use fotoQuote to power our rights-managed licensing engine, and we've worked with Cradoc Bagshaw for years to empower the individual photographer. His software is not only functional, but provides a ton of coaching tips that are very valuable when you're negotiating with photo buyers. Want to see discounts from other vendors? Tell us!
