Thanks for your feedback on BrightQube. Understandably, our UI is different. We were frustrated at the state of paginated search results in common existence today, so that if your picture is not on page 1 or 2, your images will likely never get seen. On BrightQube there is no scrolling, rather it is more like Google Maps, where you zoom in, out or click and drag to pan the visual landscape of image results. Much like viewing like it used to be with pages of slides laid out on a lighttable, only now on line, and so your images that match results are not buried on page 2 or page 200, but are displayed nearer the center of the mosaic, as relevant to the search terms entered by the seeker. The relevancy of the location of the display is based on the metadata associated with the image, rather than artificially ranked to get on a page 1 or 2 (there is no page 1 or 2, or 200). Our visual search approach enables an abundance of relevant imagery to be quickly seen by the buyer, which addresses a huge pain point for them (actually getting to see pictures!).
Also, images in our Everyday collection, including yours should they be there, are a result of a business relationship established between Dreamstime and BrightQube. Every image found on BrightQube, whether in Professional or Everyday collections (main difference between them being price and source), are available for licensing through legitimate business arrangements with agencies and collections. Whatever arrangement you have with Dreamstime is still honored here. We are just extending the searchable availability of your inventory in a new website that combines a broad spectrum of image sources to better serve a range of image buyers. Every image that has attributes associated with it when we ingested it into our searchable database retains those attributes.
I hope this clears things up a bit, and we're always happy to hear from you or anyone. Feedback is more than welcome. We're just getting started in creating a marketplace for visual media.
All the best,
Lee Corkran, Founder and CEO, BrightQube.
