I'd do a screen shot but it's a blank page. :( I'm going to try to load from something other than my Favorites and see what happens.

Yup that's what it was. Old page linked to a php front page, the new one is just http://www.mostphotos.com/

I had a good time looking at images with the little blue I's showing that I could get the same images from Dreamstime for much less, if I was a buyer.

But as usual the creative images there are entertaining beyond the usual MicroStock regiment. Some really nice artistic shots.

I like the site for the variety. The licence is more generous than standard micro licence, so it is good value in comparison (of course better licence doesnt mean much if you dont use the extra and just put it on a blog or something :))

Can buyers zoom in to see the quality?  There are a lot of low quality images on the site, fine for blogs but useless for big posters.  Buyers need to be able to see what they are paying for.

I used to get a few sales with MP but nothing this year, I just hope they are thinking about the buyers.

Doesn't that resemble the scenario with LuckyOliver? Efforts made for site design and improvement, but not to marketing; there are no sales and at the end site will have to close...

Just another joke in the stock industry, as many others "agencies" in the last 2-3 years...

@sharpshot: The zoom will be back, they are saying in their forum. They are optimising it right now, so you will again be able to see any section you like.
For a while only five small sections could be looked at. I thought that was not sufficient, so I am happy to hear that the former complete zoom will be back.

I closed my account less than a month ago because it took dozens of minutes for pages to load and I couldn't get a thing done on their site. 

Go figure, now a couple weeks later and here is this shiny new site and everything loads instantly.

Good point. When I signed up I made a comment in the forums about MP not marketing and therefore not really being anything other than FLICKR with a price tag...except I've made more sales via FLICKR

It's a fine free backup and it doesn't ask 50$ per year like Clustershot.
