Media is essential for success

Pictures and videos increase the impact of everything your business creates, whether it's image-rich brochures and presentations, glossy magazines, bold Websites, or social-network posts. Every picture is worth a thousand words.  And so, these days, every company must be a media company.

Transparency, speed and responsiveness

Want more than 15 minutes of fame? The latest ideas and trends only hold people momentarily before they're on to the next. If you can react quickly to relevant facts and events, you can take over their interpretation and use news to effectively target your markets.

Web-based media platform

What if there was one place where all your company’s media files – past, present, and future – were easily accessible to all? Doesn't matter if it's the most recent photo shoot, the last marketing campaign, or images purchased from a third party. Bring your internal archives, sources, and content partners under one roof with picturemaxx. You'll save time and money and gain efficiency. Guaranteed.

Working like a media company

picturemaxx has been working for media companies of all sizes for over 30 years and knows exactly what is important in the procurement, processing and distribution of images, videos and other media assets. Just use these experiences, adapted individually to the way of working in your company.

Fast and easy approach

The introduction of Digital Asset Management with picturemaxx is not an IT project, but a solution for your business success. Numerous standardized templates and processes form the basis for your individual solution. Consulting and training by our team of experts is included.

    Sandra Liebich Product Manager Distribution obs / news aktuell GmbH

    o be found among the flood of images is what counts for our customers. For photo editors, looking to visualize a current topic, picturemaxx is often the first point of contact. Here they can find our customers' pr-images, all labelled by the abbreviation "obs", among all other editorial content. This increases the probability of usage significantly, especially since they can be used free of charge. Thus, all companies, political institutions, associations and NGOs using news aktuell to distribute their pr-images will automatically be noticed by the image buyers. This pleases our customers and serves the photo editors at the same time.

    FUNKE Mediengruppe Today WAZ FotoPool is a nationwide fixed size, regarding images from the Ruhr region… Mark-Oliver Multhaup Managing Director FUNKE Digital and Head of FotoPool

    Mark-Oliver Multhaup Managing Director FUNKE Digital and Head of FotoPool FUNKE Mediengruppe

    Good journalism will always be in demand. Only today people want to consume imformation through the different media sources and without a second thought. In addition, content needs relevance. Therefore the FUNKE Media Group focuses on regional aspects. Accordingly, our own agency WAZ FotoPool which was founded in 2009, specializes in the Ruhr and Rhine-Westphalia area. As our own photo editors work with my-picturemaxx, it was only natural to distribute the WAZ FotoPool images through the same system. Today our FotoPool is a nationwide fixed size, regarding images from the Ruhr region. Both, marketing and management of our images are carried out most efficiently by BACKSTAGE.

    Bernd Ducke Managing Director YOUR PHOTO TODAY

    As a picture agency focusing on topics in the fields of health and geography we collaborate with many specialized photographers as well as partner agencies around the world. In the past, that meant hours of importing data from hard drives or CDs - whenever a partner provided new content. Today, the content of partners agencies can easily be accessed through dynamic interfaces, offered by picturemaxx.
    This also works vice versa. Media files from Your Photo Today can be marketed through portals or other partner agencies, simply with a couple of mouse clicks.

    Ostkreuzschule für Fotografie my-picturemaxx enables us to provide a practical approach in the training for qualified picture editors... Nadja Masri Lecturer and freelance picture editor

    Nadja Masri Lecturer and freelance picture editor Ostkreuzschule für Fotografie

    The Ostkreuzschule für Fotografie is one of the few institutions that provide vocational training to picture editors. In addition to working on projects, photo research is another important part of the two-semester study program. We do of course also introduce the common tools of the trade, such as the my-picturemaxx media search tool. To have knowledge of this tool is a basic requirement in many editorial departments. picturemaxx provides licences of the software free of charge to the participants of the study program as well as on-site introductions. Thus, by helping us create a rather practical oriented training for the picture editors, picturemaxx makes a valuable contribution to high-quality education within the branch.
