Stock Photography is dull

Or rather, the process of it is. I’ve signed up with four agencies, all of whom use slightly different criteria for selection and rules for formatting. This leads to a lot of duplication of work and is quite frustrating. I think I’ll be able to work it all from Lightroom, using the FTP plugin and custom metadata fields. If not, I’ll have to create a database to track all the information this process generates – I don’t think a spreadsheet will cut it.
