KODIME, the developer of the award-winning STARtxt platform, is pleased to announce that its entry-level ARTIST edition is now available in a special configuration for photographers and other visual and graphical artists. Using the complete toolkit to present, promote and sell photos and digital art to thousands of different mobile phone models and mobile network enables the growing community of photographers to easily generate revenues from their website and as well as flyers, mailings and catalogues.

"STARtxt is all about enabling direct ecommerce and mobile marketing. This new configuration allows anyone to easily upload, promote and sell their visual content, in their own mobile store, from photos to streetart, directly to consumers, while retaining ownership of rights and full control over pricing, product selection, presentation", comments Nico Köpke, CEO, KODIME Ltd.
