World´s largest microstock agency introduces new line of stock imagery
New York, NY, Dec. 20, 2007. Fotolia, the largest online marketplace for micro-priced digital stock images, announced today the creation of The Infinite Collection, a stock imagery library of approximately 15,000 images gathered from top agencies around the world.
The images will be licensed at prices ranging from $20 – $100 depending on size and resolution.
"We have seen tremendous growth in the last two years, in our image library and our photographer and buyer community", says Oleg Tscheltzoff, co-founder and president of Fotolia, LLC.
"The Infinite Collection will give Fotolia the ability to further expand our offerings to media buyers through these top partnerships. Buyers will now have the ability to buy the same images they used to buy for more than $300 for prices starting at $20."
"The agencies partnering with Fotolia for The Infinite Collection will have the unique opportunity to be exposed to hundreds of thousands of buyers globally, every day."
Images selected for The Infinite Collection have been gathered through partnerships with top-end photo agencies worldwide.
To be considered for inclusion, a photographer´s work must come through representation from a well-known agency, and the photo cannot have been previously licensed for any amount less than its pricing on Fotolia.
The Infinite Collection is the first traditional stock library to be created by a microstock agency.
Images will be representative of the spectrum of categories currently offered by Fotolia´s microstock marketplace.
Buyers will be able to search through Fotolia´s entire collection, or narrow search results to view only Infinite Collection images.
Fotolia is an inclusive, global community in which photographers and designers come together to form a marketplace free from traditional royalties and rights management.
Launched in early November 2005, Fotolia’s digital image marketplace has acquired over 2,500,000 images in its database and more than 500,000 international members.
