I’ve been buying stock photos from iStockPhoto.com for more than 8 years. However, I recently decided to switch to Dreamstime.com as our organization’s primary stock photo service.
Here are a few reasons I’m dumping iStockPhoto:
I’m thankful for how iStock re-invented the industry 10 years ago, but now I’m rooting for some of the newer, smaller stock photo websites like Dreamstime.com. They seem to still be focused on serving both photographers and photo buyers. While iStock has squeezed out more profit in the short term, I think these newer sites can be more profitable for the long haul by keeping their focus on serving their customers and photographers.
