Leading source for legal, low-cost imagery now has nearly 2.3 million images available for all business needs

NEW YORK, NY – August 29, 2007 – Today, Fotolia (http://www.fotolia.com) uploaded it’s 2,289,164th image. After only 18 months, Fotolia has become the largest digital library of micro-priced stock images on the Web.
This dramatic growth can be credited to the company’s international presence – with a physical presence in eight countries and support in six languages, high photographer commissions (an average of 50 percent of sales price), the ability of photographers to name their own prices – but most of all, that Fotolia photographers see high returns on their image sales.
Top Fotolia photographers see a net return of between $12 and $36 US per accepted image per year. Fotolia’s elite photographers net a revenue of between $5 and $10K US per month.
“Having a large image library is a key to maintaining a successful microstock company,” explains co-founder and president Oleg Tscheltzoff. “Buyers are always searching for fresh and quality images, and with Fotolia buyers will find images and vectors they wont find anywhere else, always with the guarantee that they will find it at its best price and highest quality.”
With its V2 version release a few weeks ago, Fotolia introduced the ability to host vector files, launched a public API tool and took steps to increase server speed and reliability. Changes were made in response to both photographer and buyer feedback to continually improve user experience.
