Royalty-free stock image innovator, PressFoto, announced ImageRent, a new service that makes more than three million stock photos immediately available for commercial, editorial or personal use online at a minimal cost – in many cases as low as a single penny.

Rather than purchasing the images outright, customers pay a “rental fee” for the rights to use the image. The fee is based on the number of times the image is seen at a fixed rate of  $.01 per thousand views. Images may also be used on social media sites free of charge.

“There are plenty of people around the globe creating online content who aren’t willing or able to spend the money required to purchase stock but don’t see theft as an acceptable alternative,” said Dmitry Shironosov, CEO of PressFoto. “ImageRent is the perfect solution. It provides legitimate and cost-effective access to a massive library of great images at an exceptionally reasonable cost.”

How it Works

To use the ImageRent service, customers set up an account with PressFoto and purchase a rental credit package. At that point, customers are able to embed any image (or images) they choose from the PressFoto catalog into their websites or blogs. Photos reside on the PressFoto servers but can be edited directly on the PressFoto site before they are embedded. The editor can also be used to add copy to an image as part of the rental service or an image that is shared at no charge on social media.

A rental fee of $.01 for every thousand views of each image used is deducted from the customer’s account.  If the rental fees ever reach the purchase price of a particular image, no further fees are assessed and the renter now owns the web size image outright. Should a customer’s Image Rent account be exhausted, a watermark will appear on all rented images, but the images will remain. The watermark will be removed when additional credits are purchased. Credit packages can be purchased for as little as one dollar.

Search and Compare All Major Royalty-Free Stock Image Sites With New Microstock.photos Engine

CHICAGO – April 24, 2014 – Buyers of royalty-free stock images will soon have a powerful new tool to help them navigate the enormous universe of images and sales outlets thanks to a new search engine called http://www.microstock.photos announced today at Visual Connections Chicago. The new tool indexes every image from each of the leading microstock vendors allowing for side-by-side comparison of pricing, licensing models and terms. The new site was developed by PressFoto, an emerging microstock company offering some of the most aggressive pricing and flexible licensing models in the business.

Microstock.photos has indexed more than 30 million photos from iStockphoto, Shutterstock, Fotolia, PressFoto and others. Users can search by title, keyword, orientation, size and color as well as blank area for copy. Search results reveal images from all the sites that are either identical or similar and provides comparative cost and licensing options.

“While most microstock companies like to talk about their exclusive content, the reality is that the majority of the stock images being sold today are available on several different sites,” said Dmitry Shironosov, CEO of PressFoto. “We created Microstock.photos as a service to buyers looking to save time and money when buying what has essentially become a commodity. We also believe that, once a prospective buyer sees how PressFoto stacks up against some of the better-known microstock companies that a lot of these buyers we’re able to help will soon become new customers.”

The beta version of the Microstock.photos site is already up, running and ready for use. The site is free to use and all purchases must be made directly from the individual stock companies shown.
