Lee Torrens, on Microstock Diaries
PhotoXpress is the first project to make use of Fotolia’s Free Photos API which is still in active development. They’re receiving a lot of feedback and making constant changes. If PhotoXpress proves successful, we can expect to see Fotolia’s free photos becoming available at a variety of sources.
From Microstock Insider
It would be a bit of an exaggeration to call this site a watershed for microstock, but I'm certain a lot of people in the industry are watching this. For more of my thoughts on free stock images read my post "free microstock photos". PhotoXpress is a good example of a site attracting visitors with a collection of some 600k free images and then offering a couple of options to convert these visitors into paying customers i.e. either a very low cost subscription to obtain more images or selling them up to a full priced subscription similar to that offered at fotolia itself.
