Stock photo agency adds 1.5 million low-priced Royalty Free images to premium website
TORONTO (November 21, 2011) — Masterfile, a global leader in stock image licensing, has added 1.5 million budget-friendly photos and illustrations to its website at www.masterfile.com, complementing its large collection of premium rights-managed and royalty-free images.
The new collection, labeled as “$10 RF”, includes the entire image collection of Crestock – a microstock business acquired by Masterfile in 2010. The $10 Royalty Free images are available in low-resolution for web and mobile applications and are presented under a separate tab in Masterfile’s search interface to make it easier for clients to search for images based on price. The Crestock collection is crowdsourced from amateur and professional photographers and illustrators around the world.
Now any search on the Masterfile website can produce a $10 RF result with a single click. Likewise, Masterfile’s powerful search features like Image Upload, SimSearch™, Visual Pairing and Color Search work beautifully within the budget collection.
Says Masterfile President, Steve Pigeon: “Global demand for quality low-priced images is insatiable. Now, with the launch of this new collection, Masterfile has something for everyone – and all on one platform – from $10 RF to global exclusives!”

I write about the stock photo and microstock industry since 2006 on my several online-magazines. My goal for MyStockPhoto is to teach photographers and stock photographers how to sell more photos and earn money with their photography hobby.
