Feedback from the first contributors

The first photographers we have contacted have signed up and started uploading. The feedback we are getting so far is surprisingly good. People love the looks of the site and the openness about who we are. The upload process seems to be working smoothly as well. There are some issues that photographers have commented on and that we are going to change. This includes:

  • It’s easy to describe a batch of images in the same series, but if you have many different images the describe page is a bit bewildering.
  • The model release registration page will not require as much information as earlier.
  • The keyword limit will be set to 50 words. The reason there is a limit is to avoid keyword spamming. We know that 1 picture = 1000 words. But come on ;)

Both the FAQ and the contributor guide will be updated as long as we receive feedback. Please, don’t hesitate to contact us.

YAY Micro is ready for its first contributors!

Finally, after almost three months of development, we are ready to receive content! Today we will contact a few photographers and ask them to contribute content and test the site. The same photographers will be featured on our front page. We are very pleased with the layout and design of the site so far. The KISS (Keep It Simple Stupid) principle has been followed as far as possible. We have tried to remove everything that might be confusing for both contributors and customers. Even our legal documents are meant to be understood by a layperson.

As the process of gathering and approving content continues for the next couple of months, we will work on the development of the rest of the site. If all goes smooth we will launch the site to customers on June 1st.

We appreciate feedback on the site, so all users are encouraged to contact us on or post in the forum.

We are really happy to finally be able to present our site to content providers!

Best regards,
The YAY Team
