London, UK, Mar. 11, 2008. Fotolia, the largest online marketplace for micro-priced digital stock images, has announced a partnership with innovative new stock image supplier moodboard that will result in over 6,000 moodboard images being added to Fotolia’s "Infinite Collection" line.
Fotolia launched its Infinite Collection in November, 2007. Images selected for Infinite have been gathered through partnerships with top-end photo agencies worldwide. To be considered for inclusion, the images 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. Collections images are priced between $15 – $90 depending on size and resolution.
The new partnership follows moodboard´s fast-paced growth since its launch in July last year. The London, UK, based stock image library supplies contemporary rights ready, royalty free and microstock creative images via its award-winning site www.moodboard.com. Images cover a wide range of subject matter and emotions to cater for all advertising, design or editorial requirements.
"We are pleased to partner with Fotolia for their Infinite Collection offering. With nearly five hundred thousand users worldwide, ranging from small and home business owners to major corporations", says moodboard head Mike Watson, founder of award-winning royalty free agency Digital Vision. "Fotolia’s Infinite Collection will allow our library to reach a global and largely untapped market."
moodboard’s tightly edited collections, high quality images and award-winning website www.moodboard.com is helping the company to push the boundaries in the stock image market place and offer a quicker and cost-effective online alternative to more traditional players.
In addition to its moodboard micro images that will be available through Fotolia´s Collections, moodboard offers moodboard unlimited (where users can pay what they want for an image), moodboard premium (top quality royalty free images) and moodboard+ (the ultimate collection of rights ready images that can be licensed using a variation of flexible packages).
moodboard’s squad of photographers are some of the best in the business but, innovatively, the firm also invites semi-pro and amateur photographers to submit their images for consideration. The images will be sold via the site ensuring the creative industry gets access to some of the latest talent on the photography circuit.
Fotolia is an inclusive, global community in which photographers and designers come together to form a marketplace free from traditional royalties and rights management. The web site allows photographers and designers of all levels to share and monetize their passion or profession while allowing graphic artists, web designers, arts directors, marketing professionals, and consumers to obtain high quality, legal digital stock images for as low as $1.
