iStockphoto price cut – 50% off half of its stock images

If you are looking to buy stock photos, you can now get them on the cheap from iStock, which has announced that half of its library has had its price cut in half. iStockphoto has been busy. They have just completed a huge overhaul which includes prices, executive leadership, and additional top name contributors. If you have not seen the new look, the new stock photos or the new pricing it is something you should check out now.

New pricing structure for stock photo buyers

istock_generic_201371The biggest change that will effect account holders and stock photo buyers is the new pricing system at iStockphoto. This is a long term strategy that is far better than an short term coupon code deal. Over half of the iStockphoto library is now selling at 50% off. The pricing advantage is for credit users only but you will save a lot of money through this new pricing strategy. If a photo was previously 2 credits, the current price is 1 credit. If an image was previously 4 credits, the price is now 2 credits. Save more when you buy a larger credit package.

The 50% pricing strategy is for images, illustrations, audio and videos! This is a wonderful break from iStockphoto.
