Royalty-Free Stock Photography Service Launches


Billing itself as the "social marketplace for royalty-free stock images," Fotolia recently launched an online social marketplace for creative digital stock images in four languages, where photographers and designers of all levels can store, share and monetize their photographs and illustrations. Fotolia, which offers free membership, allows graphic artists, web designers, art directors, and consumers to obtain legal, royalty free stock images for use in electronic and print materials for free or starting as low as $1. Start buying.

This looks like an interesting service and will (hopefully) continue to put downward pressure on some of the other stock photo services that are out there. We just had to spend $475 in rights fees for a photo that we needed in a crunch. Given the nature and subject of the photo, it's hard to see the value.

I've also tipped this to the readers of the "Much Ado About Marketing" blog. We have a fair number of art directors and creative directors that read it, so I think they'll find some real value in this post.

Thanks again,
