This addon is the missing link between your pixelpost photoblog and your online portfolios on microstock sites (istockphoto, shutterstock, etc...).
It allows you to save the stock image serial numbers of a photo with your pixelpost post and provides template tags that link to the stock agencies so people can buy your picture, order print, etc... from the stock site.

Interesting addon :)
If you can make one move more and add some options for paypal then many our users would install it as fast as you will release it :)

That's an interesting idea. I'll have to try this. A new addon will probably make more sense though, don't know how a size selection will fit with this one.
You can add some variables for different sizes. But about which sizes do you write?? :P

Is there any way to add Alamy as one of the options? I know they aren't a microstock agency, but I'd love to add this sweet funcitonality as a bridge between my PP pics and Alamy account.
Either way, nice addition!

The addon builds the link to the stock site by appending the serial number/ID saved with the pixelpost image to a common prefix URL. So if you can find out the URL of an alamy image page that is structured like this:
http://www.alamy.com/some-common-stuf + SomeKindOfID

Nevermind, I found it.
Here is the new version that supports Alamy: http://www.windal.net/photoblog/microstock-1_1.zip
If this was your picture: http://www.alamy.com/image-details.asp?ARef=A40GBA, you would have to enter A40GBA in the Alamy field.
you can use <MICROSTOCK_ALAMY_URL> or <MICROSTOCK_ALAMY_LINK> in your image template.
