Munich, September 14th, 2009. PantherMedia (http://www.panthermedia.net/?aff=125673), the leading and rapidly growing marketplace for royalty-free photography with over one million images and illustrations, today introduces its new image subscription plans for web- and print usage which start at $39.00 per month and offer images for as low as $0.13. PantherMedia unveils also the novel Corporate License, adapted to meet the specific needs of major enterprises.

No More Daily Download Limits!
The outstanding feature of all new microstock subscriptions of PantherMedia: in opposite to all other models which have a daily download limit and heavily restrict the freedom of the user, due to customer request the new microstock subscriptions of PantherMedia were created with no daily download limits.

New Microstock Subscriptions for the Web

The new web subscriptions from PantherMedia allow the download of either 100 or 750 images per month, without any daily download limit. All images in the new web subscriptions are available in 800 x 600 pixel resolution for web usage.

Depending on the duration and the package size, images in PantherMedias new microstock subscription for the web range between $0,13 and $0,49 per image.

New Microstock Subscriptions for Print in Letter Size/DIN A4
The new letter size/DIN A4 print subscriptions from PantherMedia allow the download of either 100 or 750 images per month, without any daily download limit. All images are available in 3508 x 2480 pixel resolution for letter size/DIN A4 print usage.

Depending on the duration and the package size, images in PantherMedias new microstock subscription letter size/DIN A4 range between $0,17 and $1,19 per image.

New Microstock Subscriptions for Print in Full XXL-Resolution
The new full XXL resolution print subscriptions from PantherMedia allow the download of either 100 or 750 images per month, without any daily download limit. All images are available in full XXL resolution (5600 x 4200 pixel) for print usage.

Depending on the duration and the package size, images in PantherMedias new microstock subscription full XXL resolution range between $0,23 and $1,49 per image.

New Corporate License

PantherMedias novel Corporate License allows medium-sized businesses, major enterprises and international corporations for the first time the use of images in large international companies or across the group without any problems. Besides the normal usage the license can be assigned to related enterprises and affiliated companies in terms of the 15 of the German Stock Companies Act.

Royalty-Free Images under the new Corporate License can be acquired as single images or within the Corporate subscription. The prices for the new Corporate License using credits are twice the price of a single image respectively twice the price of a standard image subscription. More information on the Corporate License: http://www.panthermedia.net/?CorporateLicense

Upgrade Anytime Available!
PantherMedias new microstock subscriptions offer the unique possibility to easily upgrade any acquired image subscription during its runtime to another subscription level with higher resolutions or extended licensing rights (corporate- or merchandising license) - either for the whole subscription or individually per downloaded image in the subscription.

Multi-Seat Option For Your Company
If your co-workers want access to the images of your subscription plan, you can easily set up and manage an account for your colleagues. The best part: its free of charge!

Wow, Germans do really know how to race fast to the very rock bottom, $0.13 doesn't even pay the time needed to type "$0.13"... what is this!

The prices look low but buyers don't use their full download limits with subs.  We will get 50% of the subs revenue and that should be much more than $0.13.

"All revenues of the subscription (also unused credits!!!) will be shared fairly with 50% with the contributor."
http://www.panthermedia.net/index2.php?page=cms/pages/display2.php&cms_id=577&cmswidth=960#h23

I will see how it goes, there is an opt out, so if commissions are too low, I can get out of it.

Of course if the buyers like it SS and FT and others will introduce the same model -- for the buyers but probably not for the sellers.  Not looking good.

Hello,

@HermanM:
@nruboc:
@Fred:

There is a basic misunderstanding. Please observe regarding the $0,13:

1.
You are talking about the subscription for web usage. Images are available with a 800 x 600 resolution only.
We said in our respective newsletter (
http://bit.ly/15Uqct) clearly: "With the introduction of the new web-subscription, your images will be offered only in the low web resolution 800 x 600, thus, the prices for images and your commission in the web-subscription will not reach the same high level as in the print-subscription."

2.
This is a theoretical value if someone downloads all possible images within his/her subscription plan and acquires a discounted subscription for one year.
We stated also clearly in the quoted newsletter that under more normal circumstances "in terms of numbers your average commission per image" will be for the "web subscription: 0.22 - 0.49 EUR (0,31 -0,69 USD) per image".

3.
As you can see here (http://bit.ly/jsEAA) and more in detail here (http://bit.ly/EE1qw), you will for subscription sales always receive a 50% commission share.

4.
If you are still unsatisfied, you can easily opt-out, anytime. In this case please follow the procedure described in the newsletter above.

Andy G
