DepositPhotos.com is a stock photos and illustrations marketplace and started its activities just last November. However, they’ve been doing their homework and gathered an incredible amount of high quality photographs at incredible low prices as well. Today we’re going to start a contest to give away 2 accounts, each one with $30 credit!!
So what does DepositPhotos offer to the designer? bitmap photos and vector illustrations of any trend and topic you can imagine, and in top of that, the ability to pay in many different ways. That’s the real interest of DepositPhotos, because they do not only have hip-hop dancing and glam shots or beautiful abstract backgrounds suitable to spice up that website, or even wild animals for that wildlife report you’re designing…
what sets DepositPhotos apart from other stock sellers are their low prices and the smooth, polished interface and the different payment ways.
As many other stock marketplaces, you can buy credits to spend on your images, with each credint amounting to almost $1. Now, the XS image size is 0.5, meaning that you pay way less than $1 for one of these quality images.
However, you can also enroll on a subscription plan which makes buying each image even cheaper. For instance, you can subscribe for one month and pay approximately $0.33 for each image! and if you subscribe for one year, forget it, each image is only $0.1. That’s really cheap! The best thing is that the quality of the images is far from being cheap, as you might have witnessed in these samples.
For the two options above, you can pay using a credit card, PayPal or Moneybookers. But what if you don’t have neither a credit card or a PayPal account? or simply don’t feel like using you credit card? DepositPhotos have the answer and it’s images by SMS. Just by texting your desired image to a certain number from DepositPhotos, the amount you spend is credit straight into your account.
One more reason to choose DepositPhotos is the Bonus point you earn each time you buy an image (XS sizes do not apply). For instance, if you buy an XXXL image you’re automatically credited with a free bonus for another image in the range of XXL sizes to XS sizes.
I’m personally loving the Advanced Search. To display it, click on the Advanced Search link below the Best match drop down. It’s really clear, takes little screen real state, and you have a lot of options to refine your search. I specially like the Search by color function:
Now, the cherry in the pie is the free trial subscriptions they are offering for a limited time. During the 14 days of the trial period, you will be able to download up to 10 JPEG photos or vectorial illustrations of any sizes. You can’t get any better than this, 140 images for free with the high quality of DepositPhotos stock.
DepositPhotos is quickly marking a difference on the stock market world driven by the high quality of their images and how easy it is to purchase an image, even without an account or a credit card.
DepositPhotos is kindly offering 2 accounts with $30 each one to spend on images.
