Fotoglif Expands Royalty-Free Online Image Site With Easy Upload for
Photographers, Addition of Stock Photo Catalog

    Web Service Gives Bloggers, Social Media Users and Other Online Publishers
    Access to More Than 3 Million Breaking News, Sports, Celebrity and Stock

<p><location>TORONTO</location>, <chron>Oct. 5</chron> /CNW/ -- Fotoglif, <a href=""></a>, today announced new features for its royalty-free online image service and licensing platform, which provides timely, professional-quality photos for use by bloggers, social media fans and other Web authors.</p>
<p>Photographers can now add their own images to Fotoglif by using the new image upload feature. They can post photo albums or single images directly to the service for free, creating the opportunity to earn licensing fees from their images. Fotoglif is also announcing the addition of a creative stock photography section to its site. The new collection starts with some 500,000 creative images from several participating collections.</p>
<p>Thanks to a revised user gallery page, contributing photographers can now use their own personal pages to promote their work for license. Fotoglif publishers are able to track, share and follow images by theme, category, keyword and photographer.</p>
<p>Photographers who post their albums on Fotoglif tap into revenue that is generated from advertising views. Images are paired with small ads that travel and make money for the photographer, blogger and advertiser wherever the images are viewed or published. Photographers can easily track their daily image use on their statistics page. Payments are made via PayPal.</p>
<p>"We're happy to have the new upload feature in place to make it very easy for photographers to create new licensing opportunities for their images through the Fotoglif service," said Fotoglif founder <person>Mike Betts</person>, who has personal experience running an independent photo studio. "Adding stock creative images to our site provides even more diversity for Web authors. Our site design has also been updated to be even friendlier to use, thanks to feedback our customers have shared since our launch in July."</p>
<p>Using Fotoglif is easy. Bloggers and other Web authors simply register at <a href=""></a> to begin to benefit from the service. Once an image is selected, the site helps the user choose the preferred image size and alignment. Once the image code is copied and pasted, the image - fully licensed - is added to the user's site pages or blog post. In addition, a photo's location on Fotoglif can be easily shared right from the site to colleagues through Twitter, Facebook, Digg or e-mail.</p>
