Step by step on editing photos
- Go to http://www.photostockplus.com/ and log into your account. If you are unsure how to log in, see Logging In.
- In the left column, click on "Stock Albums".
- Click on the album you would like to edit photos from. If you wish to edit a photo from a sub album, click on the sub album where the desired image is located.
- Click on the “Edit” link under the image you would like to edit.
- If you wish to edit all the images in the sub album, load the first image and at the end of the first edit, you will have the option to save and load the next image in the folder to make for an easy and quick editing session.
- Enter the information you would like to add or edit for your image.
Use the scroll down menu to edit which album or sub album the image will be located in. For more information on how to create a new album, click here.
This title will be seen by visitors and photo buyers.
By default, images uploaded will be titled by their file name. Change this field to the title of your choice for each image.
No file extension is needed (example: you can rename Bluebird.JPG to simply Blue Bird)
Words in your title will also be recognized through the search engine.
- File Size
This displays how much disk space your image takes. You can not change this field.
Use this tool if your image displays on its side, or up-side down. Use the scroll down menu to rotate your image left, right, or return it to its original uploaded state.
After clicking on one of your photos, visitors and photo buyers will see this description underneath your image.
Enter in a short bio or any other information about the picture you feel relevant.
Feel free to get creative in your description as it makes for a good selling point as well.
You may leave this field blank.
- Price Group
This section shows you the price group you have selected for this album. To change the price group, simply click on the blue link. For more information on pricing and editing prices, see Pricing.
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

Use the scroll down menu to choose which category best suits your image. 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 image, you may leave this field blank.
If you have a Trial Membership, your images will not be entered in our searchable database and therefore the category will not have any effect until you have upgraded your membership. Click here to upgrade now.
- Search Words
Search words are used to aid buyers in their search for photos. When a user searches for a photo, they will type in a keyword. If that keyword matches a search word describing one of your photos, that photo will be displayed.
It is recommended that you use all 50 keywords allowable for each of your photos in order to maximize the chances of photo buyers to land on your images.
If the stock image uploaded was in XIFF format and already contained a title, description, and keyword information, this embedded data was already automatically pulled from the images after the initial upload so there is no need to edit each individual picture if you are already satisfied with the embedded information of each file.
Make sure that your keywords are targeted to your image. Our editors will remove inappropriate keywords when found.
If you have a Trial Membership, your images will not be entered in our searchable database and therefore the search words will not have any effect until you have upgraded your membership. Click here to upgrade now.
- Click on ‘Save’ at the bottom of the screen for the changes to take effect.
Note: There is an easy left and right scroll tool at the top of the screen if you wish to edit photos within the same album.
