Photrade

Photrade is a new photo sharing and selling site wanting to bridge several facets of online photography. It aims to provide a central location where you can upload, manage, share, and sell your photos through various methods. It’s kind of like a mix between Flickr, ImageKind, and iStockphoto in that it provides a social scene, print sales, and stock sales.

I got an email from one of the guys behind Photrade wanting to know if I’d like an invite code to check out their services. Unfortunately, at the moment I’m a bit tied up with the blogs and various projects so I don’t have the time to properly invest in such a thing. But rather than leave it at that, we figured that some of you might be interested in checking it out so we’re extending the invite to all of you.

Sign-Up Page – Invite Code: EPIC

So you’re all welcome to try it out and see if it’s something that could provide value to you or other photographers. If you want to leave some feedback, you can drop some comments here, email me, or send ‘em straight to the Photrade team. I’m actually interested in checking it out when I find some time, so I’d love to hear your thoughts on the site.

And as with any new website or service out there on the web, I’d very much encourage you to carefully read the terms and conditions prior to signing on. And I’m not affiliated with Photrade in any way, I’m just interested in their concept.

I have been playing around with Photrade for a short while, and it’s…. interesting. A few of my photos get some attention on there, but only two small prints have sold so far. The site has some potential, but as with any other beta, there are still some things that need to be worked out.

If anyone signs up, look me up on there: http://www.photrade.com/portfolio.php?id=1617

Thanks for writing about Photrade. Let us know what you think when you get time to check it out.

Per your comment on terms of service – we actually re-did our terms of service with a four hour turn around the day we launched. Similar issues as to the PS Express problems, and we have now had a number of comments about being “photographer friendly” in the TOS.

Jerry – if you have any thoughts or comments we would LOVE to hear them. Thanks for checking out the site!

I’ve been on it since like Nov. of last year and needless to say it has come a long way since then. me: http://www.photrade.com/profile.php?id=367

I like the direction it is going and think it could easily become my #1 photo hosting site.
