Fremont, CA, Dec. 05, 2008. FeaturePics, stock photo web service, announced its new form of agreements with major photography consumers adding significant changes to the way subscription model works within stock photography markets. By signing an individually tailored agreement, publishers subscribe to FeaturePics web service without having to pay monthly fees and having full access to permanent collection of the entire web site.
The approved customer can download exactly the required images and pay only at month end.
Typical stock subscription service currently gives consumers access to a block of photographs they do not necessarily need for a limited amount of time. The new FeaturePics agreement is an easier, more reliable, method to buy images that will actually be used.
Agreements have been signed with major publishing houses, independent newspapers, and advertising agencies. The new enhanced subscription-free model came as part of close collaboration with these companies. “The way people consume images has changed. With the constant shift to digital media users no longer need access to endless list of images – value comes from having easy access to a the right image at any given time” said Elena Oryol, development lead at FeaturePics.
“Publishers want the freedom to buy whatever they need, combined with the confidence that they do not need to pay for the service, only for images actually used.”
FeaturePics has focused on the idea that photographers are able to promote themselves and publishers can always find information they need. The new enhancement to subscription-free service offers extraordinary value for major publishing companies and Internet developers.
FeaturePics gives its customers unlimited access to thousands of images that can be easily purchased and downloaded using a monthly invoice feature.
