Cradoc Corporation Releases fotoQuote Pro 5.0
The Industry Standard Price Guide for Stock and Assignment Photography
Version 5.0 has over 80 new Categories with completely updated Pricing
information including new technologies. Also has a new Interface,
Find screen, Notes window, and more.
Point Roberts, WA February 2004 Cradoc Corporation,
a major developer of computer software for the freelance photographer,
today announced the release of fotoQuote Pro 5. FotoQuote Pro 5 is
an electronic price guide for stock and assignment photography. FotoQuote
Pro 5 is the only source of pricing information for photographers
that gives you powerful Coaching help in every one of its 218 pricing
categories. FotoQuote not only helps you come up with a fair price
for your image license, but also gives you the inside information
you will need to help you negotiate and close the sale.
The changes in the photo industry are huge since we last released
the original fotoQuote in 1993, said Cradoc Bagshaw, President
of Cradoc Corporation and Creator of fotoQuote. I spent nearly
a year working on this update and I was surprised at how much time
it took to get a handle on what is currently happening in the photo
industry. I believe that there are two main reasons for the changes
I am seeing. The first is that two large stock agencies are dominating
the world markets. The other is that companies are using photographs
in many different ways because of digital technology and more targeted
advertising. The photo industry is transforming in major ways and
I wanted to be sure that fotoQuote Pro 5 would supply the photographer
with the information that he or she needs to understand and take advantage
of those changes.
FotoQuote automates the process of creating a quote for stock photography
submissions. Our research has shown that when a price quote
is given in writing instead of verbally there is a much higher chance
of getting the asking price, said Bagshaw. There are
fewer problems, including copyright infringement or rights grabs,
if the photographer is willing to take the time to send the client
the correct paperwork outlining the exact details of the job, including
usages and rights that are to be granted.
The Coach section is a very popular feature of fotoQuote and its
packed full of more negotiating and pricing information than ever
before. Its been compared to attending a weekend pricing seminar.
"FotoQuote is the number one program to help photographers gain
a clear picture on how to price their photographic images. Most photographers
would be nuts if they dont have fotoQuote, said photographer
Jean Ferro, the President of Women In Photography International.
Among fotoQuote Pro 5s new features are:
New Categories: There are over 80 new categories for a total
of 218. There are dozens of new categories that deal with new technologies
like, Film, Web, CD/DVD and Television.
New Interface: Using fotoQuote is greatly simplified. When
creating a quote you simply click a category tab: Advertising, Corporate,
Editorial, Electronic, etc, and select the usage you want. FotoQuote
once again runs in a single window making it easy to use with other
New Find Screen: There are so many categories in fotoQuote
Pro 5 weve added a new find screen that makes finding usages
easy. Just type in a word or phrase, click the find button, and you
will get a list of usages from throughout the program that match.
New Notes Window: Each of fotoQuotes main categories
now has a notes window that lets you keep multiple notes with sales
information for each of your transactions in that category.
New Updated Pricing: All of the prices have been carefully
reviewed from actual sales records, and raised or lowered to reflect
the current market.
Thanks for all your good work. I have used fotoQuote many times
to price sales and it has been invaluable at protecting me from seriously
under pricing my work. It gives me the confidence to offer a price,
based on your database, then clam up and let the client
do the rest of the talking. Plus your helpful tips and tutorials on
pricing unusual uses, negotiating and all the rest of it are a godsend
for those of us slogging it out in the freelance market, said
Jim Lawrence, photographer and writer.
Priced at $149.95, fotoQuote Pro 5 is an excellent value ($139.95
for the download version). An upgrade price for registered owners
of fotoQuote or fotoBiz is also available. Please view our web site
www.fotoquote.com or call us at 360-945-1380 for more specific
details on upgrade pricing. By popular demand fotoQuote is now available
once again as a standalone application.

what industry insiders are writing about PiezoTone Monochromatic
Four different PiezoTone hue choices.
ICC printer profiles
Piezography¨BW uses a new generation of industry standard ICC
/ ICM profiles which have been invented to provide the user with tonal
management for a variety of media when using PiezoTone inks. No software
other than that which ships with the printer is required to use these
profiles. PiezographyBW ICC profiles are used to linearize a media from
its dMax (maximum black density) to paper white. PiezographyBW ICC profiles
are designed to produce dotless (virtual) images using the manufacturer's
own printer driver. read
PiezographyBW ICC profiles with the appropriate media produce
an extremely long tonal latitude, capable of separating a grayscale
into 256 distinct luminosity values of gray. PiezographyBW differentiates
between highlight and shadow details which escape definition in other
digital systems as well as traditional darkroom printing. The PiezographyBW
system does not have the shoulder and toe restrictions of conventional
darkroom paper. Photographers who are not used to the system may be
amazed at how the PiezographyBW system renders detail in both the extreme
highlights and shadows. Piezography has profiled the most popular papers.
Use PiezographyBW ICC profiles to print from any application which can
open and print a grayscale image. Works with Mac OS9, Mac OSX and all
versions of Windows since 98 Second Edition.
Exhibition quality prints Longest dynamic range Repeatable print on
demand Palladium quality no toxicity. At the website you will find,
testimonials, media kits, press releases and excellent articles. It's
a wealth of information about the digital printing capabilities.
Piezography quad black inks make black & white prints which look like
exhibition quality photographs when used in conjunction with special
PiezographyBW ICC profiles for Mac and Windows. You can purchase

the Piezography technique and how it's being applied today. Here's a
snapshot of the list of questions asked by Claude J. Jodoin
Can you give us a little background on yourself and your company?.
PEI: What are your thoughts for photographers,who all of a sudden are
selling inkjet color output in their businesses and using watercolor
papers and canvas?
PEI: Do you have any advice for photographers using these papers?
PEI: What about canvas materials?
PEI: Do you think professional photographers will help to grow the archival
paper market significantly?
PEI: Outputting pigmented ink prints on matte papers and canvas is fine,
but what about the photographers who are looking to make prints that
look like conventional RA-4 prints?
PEI: Let's talk about what you are known for, black-and-white fine art
printing and your Piezography system.
PEI: That's fine for the matte papers, but what about gloss and semi-gloss
