Photrade Adds Commerce to Social Photography Scene

photrade.jpg

Photrade, a free photography website, has launched in beta. With a host of features, Photrade, adds a level of commerce to what sites like Flickr provide. All the Flickr-like features are in abundance on Photrade but layered on top are tools which allow photographers to "share, protect and make money" from their uploaded photography.

Like a mashup between a social photography site and a stock photography site, Photrade helps photographers and those in need of photography do business together. On top of that, an advertising system allows photographers to make money anytime their photos are viewed.

Perhaps it's the Web 2.0 version of a stock photography house.

Did you know about istockphoto?
oh..never mind

But seriously, these guys are already down the path Corbis and Getty couldn't solve for - irrelevant tagging and navigation.

Hi Guys

First, Steve, thanks for writing about us.

@Ian - Photrade helps photographers protect, sell and make money from their images. Stock sales is only one of the ways that photographers can make money from their images at Photrade. Our stock model is also significantly different than microstock sites - users set any price and earn 80% of their profits.

@Kevin - I agree that search is a very important aspect for a photo site, and we'll be launching a variety of features and technologies to help with this.

Am happy to talk more and would love to hear your feedback. Feel free to email me directly - Krista (at) photrade (dot) com....
