Photo Delivery (Without Tour)

One of the trickiest parts of the real estate photography business is delivering images to clients. Our photographers told us that they were struggling with a number of problems:

  • Not every agent orders a tour, meaning a non-TourBuzz method for delivering pictures must be figured out
  • Some MLS's require certain size images, meaning extra time spent running a batch job specifically for the MLS and then using a non-TourBuzz method for delivering the MLS images
  • Agents get confused since the tour and delivery tools are not in a single platform

This adds up to a lot of time wasted in post-production and support on top of additional money for file-sharing tools like Dropbox or SmugMug.

TourBuzz has an option to publish photos only, allowing you to use a single platform for delivery of all images whether the agent orders a tour or just photography. Photo-only tours work just like regular tours, except that the agent will only be able to access their media downloads, exported video, and flyer in their client panel.

Of course, the main attraction is being able to have a single workflow for all of your photo and video delivery, and allowing your agents to use the same back-end for photo-only and full tours, including our great Download Center with print-quality image support, Export-to-Video/YouTube posting, and automated MLS syndication (where available). This feature also supports video files and panoramas.

    This is fantastic for me, as in my market I am only doing tours with about half of my clients, the others, just photos. Keeping it all in one system is awesome!!

    Is it possible to add a gallery view in the Download center page so that agents can view the images before downloading? or at least click to open a lightbox view or something larger than the thumbnails.

    Any thoughts on adding some sort of image viewer to this? The feedback I have received has been that my agents and agent's admin would like to thumb through them in browser and select the downloads from a larger preview.

    We do plan on cleaning up this part of our app over time, as it is still a new product for us. In the meantime, your Customers can look at the Preview of the Tour link. If they are logged into their account they will see this in the Client Panel.

    I assume this takes one token just like publishing the tour, is that correct?

    The photos only delivery is 3 credits versus 15 credits for the tour. If you change from photo deliver to a tour we will refund the 3 credits for photo delivery and just charge the tour credits (15).
