June 25, 2007 – New microstock photography Web site SnapVillage went live yesterday. Owned by stock photo agency Corbis, the site invites amateur photographers to sell their photographs online.
SnapVillage and similar sites, such as Getty Images's iStockPhoto, offer stock photos for cheaper than traditional stock agencies.
"Everyone with a digital camera has the potential to show off their creativity to the world," said a post on the company’s blog. "And everyone with a computer has the tools to make something great from another person’s image."
SnapVillage allows customers to set prices between $1 and $50 for their photos. The images are royalty free.
SnapVillage will act as a 'farm club' for Corbis. Editors will invite the best photographers on SnapVillage to sell their work on Corbis, according to the press release.
Images can be purchased individually or with SnapVillage's subscription plan. The subscription allows users to download 25 images a day (up to 750 images) for $199.
