If you need photographs or vector illustrations to use on your website, book, ad etc. then you should visit a stock photo agency. But what is it?
“Stock photography is the supply of photographs licensed for specific uses. It is used to fulfill the needs of creative assignments instead of hiring a photographer.” – Source
A stock photo agency is where these stock photos are sold.
If you have been in the blogosphere from quite some time you must have heard the name of Stock.xchng and Stockxpert websites, who provide stock images. The founders of these sites have now founded a new website named Stockfresh.
Stockfresh is a new stock photo agency which hosts more than 1.2 million images.
The first word that came to my mind when I first visited the website was the same as is included in its name – “fresh”.
Take a look at the home page above.
The look of the website is very clean and professional. All important tabs and links are provided on the home page which makes the navigation pretty simple.
The website claims:
“Tired of all the noise and clutter out there? We sure are. That’s why we designed Stockfresh to be clean and easy to navigate.”
Honestly speaking I read the above quote later. The same thoughts were echoing in my mind before reading it.
Why choose Stockfresh?
There are hundreds of stock photo agencies available on the internet. So why should you choose Stockfresh to buy images over others? For plenty of reasons. Read on.
The price of the images range from $1 to $20 for individual images. If you want too many images then subscription packages are available starting from $99. See the image below for details on subscription packages.
So you will find almost anything that suits your budget.
The second reason is the quality of images. Of course, if you are consulting a stock photo agency, you are in need of photos. No matter how many other benefits the agency promises you, if they are not providing you with decent images then all else is superfluous.
Take a look at the screenshot below of the “Most Popular Images” on Stockfresh. The images are indeed impressive.
Thirdly the returns that photographers of Stockfresh get on their selling prices are the highest in the industry. This ensures that the money that you spend there goes justly to their rightful owners.
Fourthly, their collection of 1.2 million photographs is growing rapidly.
Fifthly the images are properly categorized so that you may search them easily. 28 categories of images are available, ranging from sports to internet and from health to business. Click the following link to see all categories of stock photos for yourself.
Sixthly, there are several easy payment methods available. You can pay via WorldPay, PayPal, Moneybookers or simply bank transfer. See as it suits you.
There are many more features of the website that cannot be put into a small article. Visit it, spend some time on it and you will get to know them better.
In the end I leave you with some beautiful photographs available on Stockfresh.
