Detailed Description

Update

Fotolia is a low-priced stock photography site, offering over 24 million images for publishing and advertising, at prices as low as $0.74 per photo. Unlike the two major players in stock photo sales (Corbis and Getty), Fotolia's images are mostly from semi-pro and amateur photographers, though the photos are of similar quality. Fotolia photographers earn 30%-60% of the sales revenue from their images.

In an effort to compete with Corbis and Getty, Fotolia introduced a service called Infinite Collection in December 2007, offering buyers a selection of over 100,000 high-resolution photos that are from some of the most renowned photography collections at a low cost ($20-$100 per image) to use in their web sites. Fotolia competes with major stock houses like Corbis and Getty as well as micro-stock houses like iStockPhoto and Shutterstock.

On June 17th Fotolia announced a partnership with Pingg, an online invitation and event managment website. The partnership integrates Fotolia's collection of images directly into the Pingg platform and powers the pingg Plus+ application. The API is integrated into the site allowing users to license images from the Fotolia database for a fee directly through the Pingg site.
