Imgembed tracks your online images, helps you cash in

Imgembed adds ethics and a better understanding to fair use of images by websites, and helps image creators to actually make money from their works.



Imgembed reinvents fair use of images

Setting a new standard for fair use of images online, Imgembed launched on the trade show floor of SXSWi 2013 to finally add easy to understand ethics to photo sharing wherein image creators from hobbyists to pros can share images without them being ripped off without credit.

Images uploaded to Imgembed are tracked, permissions can be set, and watermarks can be added to images with a single click and applied instantly. When a blogger or news service wants to use an image without the “Imgembed” watermark and photographer credit, they can pay to have it removed and pay the image creator by the number of times it is seen on their site.

Imgembed solves other sharing problems

When a website attempts to use an image from another site (aka steal it), the images are regenerated and the creator’s name and the imgembed watermark are added back to the picture.

Images can be imported directly into the system from a desktop, or from your Instagram, Facebook, or Flickr account to give you an instant image library. You can then set CPM prices for your images so you will be fairly compensated.

Image creators do not pay for the service up front and there is no maximum number of uploads, but a 30 percent commission is charged when images are sold through the CPM program.

Bloggers, news organizations’ use of Imgembed images

For those that want to share an image on a site, they simply click “embed” on the corner of every Imgembed photo, set the size, copy the code, and past it into the blog, with the proper attribution automatically added.

Images are free for all to use, up to a maximum of 10 thousand impressions as long as the embed code is being used in full, which appends the footer bar that contains the creator’s name. For those who don’t want the watermark or attribution, again, they can pay the CPM which only charges for actual views as opposed to a high flat fee for images (which also means they can remove the image if they feel they are paying too much).
