www.buypixel.com is a royalty-free picture library for all photographers wanting to sell their work. Fast, easy to use and secure, all photographers have to do is register with the site and upload their pictures. It costs the photographer nothing, and could even make them money.

Buyers can search the site using keywords and when they see images they want, pay with credit or debit card and download the image which they can start using at once. When a transaction is made, Buypixel.com deducts their commission before passing the rest of the money to the seller of the image through Paypal.

To maintain quality, Buypixel's picture editors monitor the images that are submitted to ensure that they are of a high enough quality and that the subject matter is suitable.

Buypixel is the brainchild of London businessman Sass Jahani. He said: Buypixel is going to revolutionise the way people buy and sell images. Its quick and easy for photographers to upload their work, quick and easy for buyers and there are no royalties to worry about. It costs a lot less than using the traditional image libraries.

He added: Another benefit is that, because it is internet based, it is global. Photographers can upload their images from anywhere in the world and the number of potential customers will be vast. There are no limits to the number of images that can be stored on the site so buyers will have a huge choice.

Less than 30 US Dollars an image for indefinite and uncontrolled usage (less than 17) BEFORE commission.

Yet another attempt to rip-off photographers.

To be honest, I am surprised a reputable magazine gives this advertising space

totally agree.. your gonna feel prety sick if your image is being sold around the world as cards, posters, adverts etc... and you made the princely sum of 8.....in fact its not a bad idea...anybody want any nice postcards....

Just say one of your pictures did become a well sold poster or postcard.

could be a great way to get exposure of you work and maybe create some opportunities for ammitures to get more work in the field.

Great to have in there potfolio.

For the general public who never plan to make a living from photography(like me) it's a way of making a few quid and I mean a few..lol from files I don't really have any use for other than to delete eventually.

The terms and conditions of use for buyers are conspicuous by their absense.
They take 40% cut of the money, you get 60%, even if they decide to offer discounts to buyers.

Might as well give my images away... it'd be a lot less hassle.
