Imagekind is happy to announce we’ve partnered with Flickr to add another great way for Flickr members to do stuff with their photos using the Flickr API.
Flickr photographers can now go to Imagekind and easily produce framed prints of their Flickr photos, and set up their own stores to sell their work to their adoring fans.
You might have seen our handiwork at Flickr’s recent birthday party, which gives you a good idea of the kind of quality and size we’re talking about!
Create Your Own Masterpiece
Flickr members can now easily create any Imagekind product, from framed fine art prints, to beautiful prints on canvas, and even our newest framed products (see below), from any image in their Flickr Photoset â€“ without any re-uploading!
Sell Your Photos
Any Flickr member can easily set up an Imagekind account to start selling their work right away, and directly import their images from their Flickr photoset! These members will get the same great options and on-demand service as every Imagekind member:
* Great quality prints and framing â€“ reliable on-demand service
* You control the pricing and markup, and you keep all of your profit
* Additional 15% commission on sales of mat and framing options with your art
* Joining a thriving marketplace that is redefining how people worldwide buy art online
Any existing Imagekind member can now also effortlessly import images from their Flickr photo sets directly into their Imagekind galleries â€“ right from your Imagekind member admin.
In addition, weâ€™ve been working hard to implement a few new product offerings, continuing to provide more and more options for anyone creating or buying art.
Launching New Products: Ready-Made & Multi-Opening Frames
More ways to show off your art! Don’t want to spend a fortune framing your prints? Ready-Made Frames to the rescue! Ready-made frames come in fixed standard dimensions, but you will still be able to choose your mat and frame style.
Plus, you can now you can even frame multiple images at one time! With our Multi-opening frames you can select the images, determine the number of openings, and choose how you want them arranged. To find out more about these new offerings, take a look at our Ready-made page.
One important note; these options are not currently available for work being purchased from an Imagekind gallery by the shopping public. We have a few kinks to work out regarding how to allow more pricing control for images going into these ready-made products, as weâ€™re sure many of our artists would like to set different markups for their work when used in these frames.
However, any Imagekind member can create these items themselves for their own use or for resale, from any image in their Imagekind galleries or Flickr photosets, at our wholesale or â€œbaseâ€ cost.
As always, weâ€™d love your feedback on all of these new developments, so feel free to post away here, or join us on the Imagekind Forum. Our members and their original art are what make this endeavor really special â€“ so thanks for all your support while weâ€™ve been busy, and welcome to all our new Flickr friends!
