£1million secured investment for growth

 

Along with the £1million investment secured for growth, Pixelrights have appointed three industry leaders* on their Board in the form of Christina Vaughan, founder of Image Source and former Vice President of PACA and former President of CEPIC as new Chairman, James Rutherford CIO of Hermes SourceCap and Bill Flind CEO of Ipsotek as Non-executive directors.

They have now expanded their in-house team to 17, moved to Farringdon, and set up offices for their technology development in Poland.

They have also expanded across the web into new platforms, licensing their image technology to major players from image libraries to digital asset management companies such as Sodatech, Capture, MEMAT, Xpertise and Image Protect, who are now integrating the technology into their platforms and extending it to their clients.

Pixelrights are also working with associations and brands from the RPS to Metro and Fujifilm with joint promotions with all the major camera retailers from WEX and Calumet to John Lewis and London Camera Exchange.

Photographers can now sell prints as a self-fulfil option or select a print partner, they have more designs to choose from to build their sites and they have the opportunity to learn from industry leaders from articles on their new newsletter and blog, plus photographers can connect on social media with their members’ community.

Pixelrights websites will also be further enhanced this year as the service grows from strength to strength. It will be under-going some significant feature-based enhancements that will bring it to the top of its game.

“We are confident that Pixelrights in the coming months will become the most compelling option for anyone looking to build a website,” said Shaun Curry, founder of Pixelrights. “We want to show that our roots are in photography and that we understand this better than any other platform. Also providing the very latest technology to help photographers gain more from using the internet to promote their work. You only have to read our reviews on Google to understand what we mean to the photographic community.”

Pixelrights are pleased to announce they were invited to the DMLA conference in New York and the ACE Picture Library conference in London to present their new .PXLR image format, which uses their revolutionary SmartFrame technology. Recently featured by Alamy, their SmartFrame innovation is taking the image industry by storm offering substantially more protection than the standard jpg format online.

All images on the Pixelrights platform are protected by SmartFrame which reduces image theft and ensures attribution wherever they are shared.

Pixelrights have significant new features in development for the Smart Frame technology which will allow it to be shared on any website outside of our own platform framework,” continued Shaun. “To add to these exciting new developments we have decided to introduce our WordPress plugin, that will provide free use of the Smart Frame to around 70 million WordPress based websites. This is implemented or redacted at the flick of a switch, it is incredibly powerful and simple to use.”

Engagement with the #model is important to all #photographers, and being able to change the #background simply and remotely while still facing and engaging the model without having to disturb the energy of a shoot is an asset to any session.

A new Motorised Rotor Roller system for supporting photography background rolls in fixed #studio installations has just been launched by Creativity Backgrounds. It can be fixed to the wall or with mounted brackets or simply attached to background support stands using clamp brackets.

Mobile photographers can also benefit from the speed and convenience of using the Creativity Backgrounds Rotor Roller, this is especially useful with the full-width rolls. Event photographers will get a huge advantage from using the automated system. You can set up different colours before the event and change swiftly as the night progresses, flipping between white and greenscreen even.

The Rotor Roller of course also works on the Creativity car-friendly rolls as well
