Royalty-free picture library launches online - A new website has been launched which aims to make it easier for amateur photographers to get their work out to a wider audience
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.
