Many of you may have already heard about the partnership we recently established with PicApp, so here is some info about what this application is and how you can take full advantage of it. We decided to work with PicApp because we want to provide you with as many tools as possible to continue to produce the highest-quality sports content on the web. To access the media search tool, you can click on the link at the bottom of Yardbarker.com called Photo Search and from there can search for your desired photo!
Through PicApp.com, you can easily locate premium up to the minute images to post on your blog, free of charge and without infringing on any copyrights. This will cut down on the time you spend searching for the right image, allow you to find photos that might inspire new posts (via their RSS feeds), and eliminate the risks that come with using copyrighted images. The system has over 20 million images, and they come from great sources like Getty, Jupiter, and Newscom. One of the great features available is the PicApp RSS feeder, which enables you to register your search term ("basketball", "NY Giants", "Steve Young", etc.) and receive notifications to your RSS reader whenever PicApp gets new images that match the search term. This will not only help you find the photos related to your blog, but it could also be a great way to find inspiration for new posts. There is also a PicApp plug-in, which has been developed for WordPress. This plug-in allows publishers to search and add images straight from their editor into their post, which essentially means PicApp is fully integrated into your editing flow. This means you don't need to open a new browser and look for images. It's the fastest and easiest way to add images to posts!
Download the plug-in to search and add images straight from your editor here.
