Photo and image search, stock photography, art prints & multimedia
Stock photography sites and other sources of photos, graphics, illustrations, art, and multimedia have exploded online. Royalty-free or rights-managed. Print or web use. Traditional stock photography sites offer quality digital photos on CD, by subscription, or on a pay per download basis. Cost per image can be in the hundreds of dollars, especially for unique use. A new competitive model is shaking up this marketplace: micropayment stock photography sites allow clients to download images for a small payment (typically $1 to $5), with profit made on volume. Image search technology has improved, enabling easy access to high-quality pictures, multimedia resources, video, and audio. Image organizers allow you to arrange, edit, and output your photos to CD-ROMs or the Web. Photo sharing sites provide a free place to host your pictures and buy and sell art. The list below provides a sampling of the tools available.
