Project Description



I want images of every kind of fish (freshwater and marine), Corals, Inverts, etc. to which I can have access to in our database. In short, I would pay for you to snag pictures off the internet. They must come from resources such as .gov (government ie. fish and game), .edu (education or colleges), or other royalty free sites and not from anyone which would be a conflict of interest or come after us for taking their images nor any image with a watermark already in it. This will also include our own personal database of images we already have on file.

Take our images currently off our website shopping center and from our image directories, and all images from the internet by using lasso or other graphics utility to simply cut the main picture away from the background and I will then provide you with a paid program if you don't have one called "Resizer Pro" which will automatically take all images, resize them to the appropriate size we want which would be 500 x Perspective - along with our watermark or some sort of image to identify the image as being ours (our program will do thousands at once in seconds in order to replace our existing images with appropriate .jpg images revised). Images can not come from another company who sells fish online or anyone else who has copy rights to the images, especially anyone who would be considered a conflict of interest to us such as from another competitor who resells livestock. This is why government, educational, and other agencies are good ones to grab images from.

Again, I will give you a very nice program I paid for called "Resizer Pro" which resizes and can add images easily if you prefer unless you are using another better program like photoshop or other (something I can also provide) and one simple point on the project is that you use the name of the animal as it's saved file name including scientific if available to you as you collect the images ie. ([url removed, login to view] ). The reason for the underscores, use of proper and scientific names and no spaces is because it will allow me to locate the image faster in a database by query when looking for it as well as give it much higher relevance level in SEO when used on our site.

This project has potential to be extremely large! There are tens of thousands of fish, coral and other freshwater and marine species alone. I would ask that you do all this remotely on your computer and either save to a DVD or you could maybe email them to me a thousand at a time in order to be paid as you go.


- Download all our images from our shopping center directories and root directories and other internet sites (not from competitors or illeagle sources).

- Cut out so there is no background to make all images look uniform.

- Resize (to 500 x perspective) and Logo with a watermark (ID of our company) in bulk with a utility I’ll be happy to give you for free.

- Email me each time you have a new list of 1,000 unique images (no dupplicates of the same species you already did) to be paid as fast as you can knock these out.

- These images are to be exlusive to us and not allowed to be resold to any one else for any reason.

Our site to review the sort of simple images you will be cutting out can be found at [url removed, login to view] but to see what I’m talking about between images with a back ground and those without can be seen here [url removed, login to view] .

All Images must be very clear of high quality and not pixilated.


Bid’s received should be per 1000 images completed successfully and to satisfaction.
