Hello,

What do you call a website that sells photos  and illustrations? Microstock website? Stock website?


What do you call a website that sells photos, illustrations and footage? Production website? Media website?

I am a little confused and tried to google it. it didn't help.

They all sort of merge / blend into one.  As a totally generic site I'd call it a stock site.. or stock agency.  Microstock agency would also be a generic term but then it mentions the price and one would expect to pay between $1-$20 for a regular license.

Stock footage is a site that just sells footage.

Some sites are haunted by their past when they only sold one media type.  iStock is also known as iStockPhoto but they also sell audio, video and illustrations.  Shutterstock also started out as photo (the name referring to the shutter of a camera) but also sell illustrations (and video)
