Fashion Hawk is a service created to help PR companies, photo agencies, image resellers and publishers maximise the value of images showing celebrities wearing designer clothes and accessories. By adding designer label keywords and fashion terms to aid image search, Fashion Hawk helps clients find the pictures that will enable them to boost the sales, promotional and editorial impact of famous people wearing famous brands.
Nonstop Photo Desk has been created to free photo agency staff and owners from the headache of trying to organise image workflow, and avoid getting into legal hot water, while maximising the sales potential of every image that goes out with the agency’s name on it. It does so by providing clients with experienced staff to process and send out images around the clock, using the most efficient processes available. And the best part is that clients only pay for the production itself, rather than having to maintain night desks, or pay photo editor salaries to have repetitive tasks carried out by people who should really be organising the image-gathering effort.
Making your basic product easier to find with good keywording is a proven method of increasing revenue for image and video libraries. Keedup can also help you find new ways to earn money, cut costs and get the basics right. Keedup uses university graduates working from its Auckland and London offices to add metadata around the clock. As well as celebrity and news keywording, Keedup offers a range of stock keywording standards, including Corbis, Getty and Alamy. There are also specialist services such as fashion keywording and image workflow management.
