October 31, 2010

A few times a week I receive questions from microstock photographers who have discovered the picNiche toolbar, wondering about how they can make the whole microstock process better.

As development progresses for the picNiche contributor toolbar, which reads basic earnings/portfolio data from the various microstock agencies, I face a dilemma, and I need your help to resolve it 🙂
