Image Source's Collection of Stock Photography Now Available to Online Publishers Through PICAPP.COM

With PicApp, Bloggers Can Now Get Royalty-Free Images for Unlimited Use at their Sites

Bloggers looking for a photo to brighten up the content at their sites can now get high-end creative images from Image Source, the world's leading independent producer of royalty-free stock photography, through the PicApp platform. Image Source is making its large database of professional quality images available to bloggers and other online publishers. The PicApp license allows its members to freely and legally use Image Source photos as often as they like to enhance the look and feel of their site, help tell a story or accompany a news item.

Image Source specializes in lifestyle, health and beauty and business photography, with the complete collection covering a wide variety of topics, themes and categories. All Image Source photos are professionally taken, with the company generating more than 3,000 new images each month. Image Source joins other prestigious image agencies as a premier content provider for PicApp.

“Image Source has grown to become one of the most creative and prolific producers of stock photography in the world,” said Eyal Gura, CEO, PicScout. “By adding the company’s content to our PicApp offering, we continue to make more and more previously unattainable and hard-to-get images accessible, legally, to bloggers and online publishers.”

Image Source is renowned for being on the cutting-edge of trends in the photography world in terms of art direction and stimulating creativity through images.

Once at the PicApp site, online publishers can select any of the wide range of images licensed from Image Source for free and use them adjacent to a news post or editorial content on their sites. When the image is streamed from the PicApp servers, it comes with a non-intrusive ad that provides a monetization tool on the content owners’ behalf.

“Image Source is happy to be working with PicScout on an initiative that will bring legitimacy to online image use, and that explores a new revenue-generating model,” Duncan Grossart, CEO, Image Source, said. “Providing content through the PicApp platform really moves Image Source into the new/social media arena for the first time.”

PicApp is currently in beta. Interested bloggers covering day-to-day news, celebrities, sports and more can go to www.picapp.com and find the best images for their posts.

The new PicApp version uploaded recently includes an RSS feature. This allows bloggers to build and save their own search feeds.
