This site enables the user to put in a search term and search through the many different stock photo agencies to find the perfect stock  photo on one site. Prices and actual photos can not be compared, and this search option is best for the business or individual who has a variety of memberships to stock agencies.  Purchases are completed with the stock agency directly that offers the photo.
