I got an email today telling me that Dissolve is now selling photos.  I can't find anything about terms but it looks like the images have to be exclusive due to the price. $499 for a full rez image (4800 px and higher). Looks like landscapes and lifestyle only. Trying to steal some of share from the premium collections, Stocksy, for example.  Probably still a 35% commish but I don't see any terms.

They appear to be mostly from aggregate agencies at this point. The price point is good.

Looks like they put together a collection from all the usual macro providers, so it really isn't new content.

But a nice selection, nothing wrong with it.

List prices like offset or getty, so no problem for stocksy, that offer their content at a much lower list price.

Artists that are with blendimages, cultura etc...have the advantage of seeing their files offered allover the macrostock industry. They just supply their distributor and don't have to worry about individual agencies.

Probably dissolve will also take additional content, but will they also offer a macro distribution program?

With the prices Dissolve is charging, why would anyone shop there versus at Getty or any of the other outlets that Image Source, Blend Images or Maskot collections are sold at roughly similar prices?

They have only 200K photos that lots of other macro outlets have, except the other outlets have millions more.

What's the point?

Those are "list prices", in line with all the other macro prices. It says nothing about what the customers will actually pay.

I guess the point is that they probably can offer their existing customers a combined photo/video package of preselected high quality content.

If somebody likes their selection, why not?

If you want "everything" you go Getty, if you want "prefiltered" you can check out dissolve. Makes sense to me.
