In case you haven't seen it, CanStockPhoto has just introduced new license options, as well as very welcome minimum payment of US$50 using Paypal.

As all of the photographers would have seen by now, we have launched several exciting new upgrades!

X-Large Sizes
All images over 10mp will now automatically have an Extra Large purchasing option. This option is worth 5 credits, which results in an image commission of $1.25 for Member Downloads, $2.50 for Guest Downloads, and a $0.25 commission from subscription purchases.

Reduced Cashout Level
Based on member feedback, we have lowered the minimum PayPal cashout level to $50. The mailed cheque level remains at $100.

Extended Volume Licensing
Photographers can now allow their images to be published up to 5 million times, over our standard 100,000 level. This would apply to customers that would like to use photos in magazines and brochures. We have had a very significant amount of interest in this from buyers, so we expect it to be a welcome addition.
This is completely optional, as photographers can elect to keep their images limited to the 100,000 level.

Additional Commission Structure:
- 100,000 Maximum Reproduction: (default license)
- 500,000 Maximum Reproduction: +$7.50
- 1,000,000 Maximum Reproduction: +15
- 5,000,000 Maximum Reproduction: +$50

Additional Licensing Usages
Customers often would like to use our images in a limited commercial application. As such, we are now allowing the possibility for images to be licensed for limited resale. This would be coffee mugs, t-shirts, board games, electronic programs/games, etc. However, it does not permit copies of the images to be sold (prints or posters, for example). Also, you always retain full copyright and control over your images. Photographers will receive an additional commission of $15 on these license purchases.

Please note that you can control your licensing options within your Preferences section, and can also individually set the preferences of each image.



You have to opt in or out when you first login, but you can change it later.
