Fotosearch Stock Photography Turns 10 Years Old

Waukesha, WI, Aug. 17, 2008. Fotosearch, a leading provider of premium stock photography based in Waukesha, Wisconsin, is celebrating its 10 year anniversary this week. Fotosearch.com was launched August 10th 1998 and has since grown by leaps and bounds.

In addition to featuring over 3.25 million images from 150 providers at one site, Fotosearch also holds one of the largest collections of stock footage on the internet. The ability to search HD clips was recently added and makes it easy to browse through over 65,000 footage clips.

Fotosearch grew out of Publishing Perfection, founded in 1987, when electronic publishing was in its infancy. From the beginning the company targeted graphics and multimedia professionals through its monthly catalogue. Expert sales staff provided the assistance required for buying graphics tools such as design software, laser printers, and scanners. In addition to hardware and software, the company began to offer high quality stock images in the early 1990s.

In 1996, Publishing Perfection launched a website offering an online catalog, expanded product information and special discounts. In 1998, the Fotosearch web site was introduced where customers could search multiple stock photography publishers at a single site.

The site is now offered in more than a dozen languages with a fully functional, easy to use search, and the ability to pay in local currency for each site. 24-hour customer support by phone was added in 2005, and is also available for most languages.

Millions of high-quality images, with thousands more being added every month, coupled with a sophisticated, intelligent search engine, enable Fotosearch to help designers and creative professionals around the world find the perfect photo fast and get back to the business of being creative.

By keeping the imagery content fresh, making it easy to search, and offering exceptional customer service both before and after the sale, Fotosearch has become one of the world’s largest providers of royalty-free and rights-managed stock imagery. Fotosearch offers content from more than one hundred of the world’s highest-quality stock photo, video, and music publishers, including Corbis, Getty Images, JupiterImages, and many others.

Fotosearch.com is hell expensive. I was able to find some of the same video content on fotosearch.com on another site for a fraction of the cost. Appears fotosearch.com is just licensing some of the content and selling it for a lot more. istockmoments.com is selling some of the same content for $2 while fotosearch.com is selling it for over $200. They do have a lot of content, but not all of it is good. Most of it is very amateur. istockphoto.com has a lot more high quality content, in my opinion.
