Select the stock album you wish to create your sub album in from the dropdown menu.
The description entered will be viewed by buyers and visitors who are browsing through your albums. Use the space in whichever way you feel most appropriate, and which best "sells" your album.
Use the scroll down menu to choose which category best suits the content in your sub album. This gives viewers and photo buyers another way to find your images.
If you feel none of the categories listed suits the content of your album, you may leave the selection as "None".
- Select watermark
A watermark is a semi transparent text which is applied automatically onto your images when they are viewed by visitors and photo buyers. This watermark is meant to protect the photographer and his/her work, and will not appear when the image is purchased.
Choose a watermark type by checking the box next to the selection.
Images will have no watermark applied.
- PhotoStock Plus
Select this to apply the default watermark (Photostock Plus, Digital Photography).
This option allows you to create a custom watermark.
Fill in the empty slot with the text you wish to use (example: Image by John Smith, copyright 2010), and set the parameters of the watermark:
Size – font size
Intensity – how dark or light the font’s shade of grey will appear
Opacity – how transparent the mark will be
Placement – where on the image the watermark will be located
- Pricing Group
Photostockplus offers 6 default pricing templates (low, medium, and high for Economy or Pro Prints). Use the scroll down menu to select the pricing template for the images in your album.
You may also create a custom pricing template for a specific album. See ((Pricing Groups)) for more information.
- Optional Password
If you would like your album to be viewed freely by the Photostockplus community of viewers and buyers (recommended), leave this field blank.
You may type in a word or phrase in this field if you wish to password protect a sub album for private viewing. Once a sub album is password protected, users will be asked to type in the password before viewing its content.
For potential buyers who do not have the password, a link will be available to them to request it. An automated email with their name will then be sent to you at which point you can choose to grant the user access and agree to send them the password, or ignore the message.
Please note, images in a password protected sub album will be excluded from our searchable database.
- Album Name
- Click on "Add Album"
You can now proceed to uploading images to your newly created sub album:
