It’s never been better for image buyers”

While photographers face stiff competition in the marketplace, the advent of high quality digital cameras, their reduction in price and the Internets’ ability to drive down prices and source images from all over the world means the market has never been better for the image user.

There is currently so much choice and value available, microstock agencies (crowd sourced image libraries) aggregate quality images from around the world by professional and amateur photographers. Images which don’t meet microstock standards are often offloaded for free* on free stock photo sites and into the creative commons.
