31 Jul 2008 This Month in Microstock – July 2008
By far the biggest news in July was the Getty Images and Flickr deal. Technically it’s not microstock news as the images that will be sold as a result of the deal will be sold at macrostock prices. However, the news did rule out the possibility of Flickr becoming any immediate threat to the microstock market.
July was about to pass by without too much controversy until details of the StockXpert Photos.com program provided contributors with more evidence that the sky is indeed falling. The outcome remains undetermined, though contributors will be heard during today’s conference call.
Shutterstock became the first agency to pass the 4 million images milestone.
