FOTOLIA ANNOUNCES CORPORATE SUBSCRIPTION SERVICE


Fotolia now offers corporate subscriptions.New York, NY, August 5, 2008 – Fotolia (http://www.fotolia.com), the
largest global online marketplace for micro-priced digital stock
images, announced today a corporate subscription-based offering that
will give users four tiers of subscription access to its image library
of nearly 4 million stock images.

"The Fotolia corporate subscription service grants customers complete
control over media buying, enabling account owners to manage multiple
users within a single organization tied to a central account."
explains Oleg Tscheltzoff, co-founder and president of Fotolia, LLC.
"This allows corporations more control over tracking microstock
purchases without the need to open multiple accounts. As always, our
goal is to offer the highest-quality imagery to our buyers, by
attracting the best professional and amateur photographers in the
world and offering solutions that meet the media buying industry's
needs."

Corporations wishing to enroll in the subscription service will be
able to tie unlimited user IDs to a central account, which will make
media purchases and itemization much more efficient. Through a central
account, multiple users will also be able to access a central bank of
credits for media purchases, without the need for an accounting
department to monitor remaining credits on multiple accounts.

The packages offer customers ease of use, giving the administrator of
the account total control over the media buying process. Features
include the flexibility to download 25 to 250 images per day,
automatic renewal of your subscription, unlimited number of users, and
flexible subscription options for your organization's needs. For more
information on the service, or to subscribe, visit

Not sure this will affect contributors one way or the other.  Assuming we still get the same rates for subscription downloads, this just makes it more convenient for large corporations to access the image library. 

Most likely we will see subscription sales volume increase, but as long as it isn't siphoning too much from credit sales we will most likely see an earnings bump.  Hope so anyway...

A company having today multiple accounts (multiple people downloading from Fotolia) which e.g. in sum reach a daily number of 25 downloads, may up to now have chosen to use regular downloads (as every individual uses not enough downloads to justify a subscription plan).
Now they can bundle those different people in one plan.

This will most likely shift downloads from regular credit downloads to subscriptions.
Bad news.

I'll stay on the sideline at Fotolia and keep waiting...

Yep, I agree.

This is just a move to shift even more from ppd to sub.  Sub sales will increase, PPD sales will decrease and we'll all lose in the end.

what really matters is the bottom line.  If the bottom line increases, I'm all for it.

It is rare that an agency does anything to increase the contributors bottom line. The only bootom line this one will increase is the Fotolia bottom line. Look at the price difference for the same subscription volume. The single seat is $125 less then the unlimited but we get the same money.

Fotolia is at the bottom of the barrel for sales.  Considering I can't get any more images accepted by them; I figure things will only get worse for me.  I do hope ite can benefit some of you contributors though!

The are one of the sites I will not upload for at least a year.  I want to give them time to indicate what they want by watching the feedback of you more successful photogs.

With a bank of more than 4 million images; they obviously don't need my contributions.  It is said that if you throw enough mud against the wall, some will stick.  So may be I should submit 1ooo images and get one or two accepted.  ;D
