Microstock Overview: Microstock Sites : Published

What is microstock?

Microstock is relatively new phenomenon in the commercial images market.

In the past, if you required stock images, you would have purchased them from traditional stock agencies. These agencies build their exclusive portfolios by commissioning professional photographers.

Microstock has changed all that. Microstock portals source their diverse portfolio from the global community, and license these images at prices that have changed the stock imaging market forever.
