Virtual Moment, LLC, announced today the launch of its online image
management service for professional photography workflows. Spitfire
Photo Pro provides photographers with maximum control and flexibility
in image rights management and distribution. It is the first service
provider to offer a turnkey solution for agencies and photographers
"Spitfire Photo offers
an advanced user access system that allows agencies an out-of-the-box
solution for collaborative work environments," says
Virtual Moment President, Steven Rabkin. "This service provides
unsurpassed flexibility in establishing access rights to match the
various roles within any organization." Features such as
FTP and downloadable lightboxes, powerful search capabilities, and
batch captioning greatly simplify otherwise tedious and time-consuming
International Sports Images, an agency comprised of 15-contract
photographers, an archive of tens of thousands of digital images, and
more than 200 registered users worldwide, has selected Spitfire Photo
Pro because of its flexible user management and fast search facilities.
As the official photographer for the US men's and women's soccer teams,
ISI depends on their online archive to rapidly distribute their shoots
to top clients such as Soccer America, ESPN and Nike. "Spitfire has helped us take
control of our images and get them to our clients immediately from the
match. It's been a vital tool in establishing our position as the
largest soccer only database in the USA," says John Todd,
General Manager of ISI.
At the same time, Spitfire Photo provides the freelance photographer
with the opportunity for large-scale, online image distribution and
sales, offering all of the same powerful features and tools of a major
agency. Completely customizable interfaces ensure photographers do not
have to sacrifice branding and identity for functionality. Cutting edge
features such as RSS photo feeds provide a way for photographers to
effortlessly showcase their latest images on their photo blogs or
portfolio sites. Search and login forms can be easily integrated to
provide a seamless transition between websites.
The combined technology and flexibility of Spitfire Photo Pro provides
everything a photographer or agency needs to market and sell online.
Spitfire Photo Pro is available for one low monthly fee, with no
contracts or obligations.
