We're planning a service that help photographers share their photos to a vast majority of services (like Facebook, 500px and Flickr). This will decrease their working-time as they only have to upload an image once and we'll manage the rest.
It would be awesome if Getty offers a way to allow people to upload images via their API. I know that the submission process can't be replaced but you can include a way to upload the model and property release information. You can still continue emailing the users and notify them about their submission state.
Hi, thanks for your comment, and for checking out our API.
We've got a contributor submission tool (internally developed) that we use today, one that loads both photos and associated releases into our systems.
The notion of "upload" has come up from time to time in relation to Connect, but it's not on our active road map at the moment. Still, it's great to hear from developers that this is something that could be useful.
