Envato, the platform for exchange of creative elements from illustrations to WordPress templates, has just announced a new collection of stock images, called “Unstock”. You can find more authentic stock agencies in our top list here!
Authentic images at simple pricing = Unstock
As Envato states, the new collection is hand picked from user generated content, collecting the most authentic images submitted. The collection highlights the trend away from obviously staged images of smiling business people in offices towards the new wave of photography covering the world around us as we see it in our daily lives. It will not replace but complement the traditional stock imagery Envato already offers on their PhotoDune platform.
The licensing is simple and straight forward: The royalty free license allows for perpetual usage in advertising or editorial context, with the exception of products for resale and a print limit of 250,000 copies. The price is a plain $5 per image, and customers get the full resolution file for this price.
PhotoDune offer for classic stock imagery
With its other platforms like GraphicRiver oder ThemeForest, the Envato group serves a wide range of creative markets from web designers to video editors. Their image platform PhotoDune also offers the traditional stock imagery at prices from $1 to $9 depending on image size.
