From shooting to distribution:
the photo workflow in a few words


Browse previous articles

The Accor Photo Library tool is the single point of entry for all your photos, regardless of how you want to use them.

Have you just organised a photo report at your hotel? Do you have photos ready to be used?

Then send your HD files, accompanied by the photographer's copyright contract and models' image release contracts, duly signed to Accorstudio.
Provided that they comply with the brand's photo brief and meet the required technical standards, your photos will be included in the Photo Library within three working days.

Would you like to share these visuals with an employee or external service provider (marketing, public relations, communication agency, etc.)?

Search the Photo Library and drag your selection of images into a basket.
You will be able to:
- Download it in the required format;
- Send it to an employee; or
- Generate a download link for your external service provider.

Do you need to use these images to add them to an, or OTA website?

Click the "Update websites" button on the hotel section to access the corresponding Library interface and confirm your request, once for all, when all categories have been illustrated.
To do this, you can use photos from your stock Photo Library or images directly from your computer ("direct upload").
The Distribution Systems Administration & Operation service is responsible for updating the Accor websites within three working days and sending your request to external distribution sites.
