Seems a bit buggy. (mac/safari)
Page won't load fully and when you scroll back to the top the header and images disappear.
Other than that...

Well, I was afraid it would go that direction. That trendy look is going to look so dated this time next year.

What's trendy? The site design? The content? I'm not seeing anything particularly unusual, but maybe I'm missing something.

The submissions. That "faded color" look is hot in all the commercials right now.

Might as well go for something the other sites haven't and that trendy look has been around for years but http://www.photocase.com/ got there first.

Hmm. I'm seeing a fair variety of style. Nothing groundbreaking though - they've even got the requisite business handshake photos... :)

A BIT buggy?  The site won't open at all for me ... all it says is "this page can't be displayed" ... and I'm soooo curious!!

So can those of us that never got a reply to the email after they asked for a selection of our photos apply now?  Now I know what they've accepted, I think it should be much easier to supply what they want.

I'd say photocase is more "low-fi". Stocksy seems more "artsy", at least in my humble opinion.

Guess I was hoping for a smooth kick-off, but it seems more like a buggy istock release ;)
Chrome doesn't display it right, 1st search for 'people' showed no results, and uh, large thumbnails aren't watermarked? First page is slow but looks nice, but beyond that there's clear css and alignment issues.


I'm sure they'll have these sorted out in few days, and I hope it's successful enough to thrive :)

Looks like it's not image exclusive, as was speculated earlier. At least as far as I can tell. Some of Simon's stuff is the same stuff I've seen elsewhere, including the famous twitter bird.

I clicked on the contributor page. A few names I recognized from iStock, but all artists are using real names so they all dropped their iStock names. Sean has about 1,200 images up so far.

I can't find the same images on other sites.  Lots are ones that used to be on istock but they aren't there any more.  Can you see any selling on other sites?

Main page freezes my browser on my iPhone for long periods while it loads batches of thumbnails. During that time I can't do anything except quit the browser. No scrolling, pinching, or anything. Oh well.

Looks really good on my phone, but a total mess in my browser.

Ah, just refreshed the page. Now, it looks the same.
