Depositphotos reaches 9 million high-quality images and invites contributors to submit videos

Fort Lauderdale, Florida, August 30, 2012 – Depositphotos, the fastest-growing microstock agency in the world, has reached the 9-million-image milestone. Furthermore, Depositphotos announces the launch of a high-quality video upload platform, and all contributors are welcome to upload their videos for sale. For the past year, Depositphotos has continued to please its customers with updated website functionality, a radically improved “Smart Search,” a new collection of “Editorial use only” images and a brand-new lightbox operating system. Those improvements were designed to meet customers’ needs, as well as to make working with the constantly growing website content (which has more than doubled, from 4 to 9 million images in the last year) even easier. Progress at Depositphotos knows no bounds; the company announced that new video upload functionality is now available for contributors on the website. The upload requirements for video files are: a resolution between 320х240 and 1920х1080 pixels (Full HD) a length between 3 and 60 seconds, and a maximum video size of 1000 Mb.

The love of learning that leads to new discoveries: a story of Pics4ads

Pics4ads is a self-taught photographer, artist and graphic designer from Eindhoven, Netherlands. Images illustrating Spa and Health themes are her hobby, and she’s made a great career from them. She has a lot of experience creating custom business cards, flyers, promotional rack cards, binders, greeting cards and even iPhone and iPad cases. Not so long ago, she started combining photography and design elements to expand her options – and she has succeeded at it. Pics4ads has sold over 700 files through Depositphotos, and many of them will look familiar to you, because her work is extremely popular among designers and advertisers. We asked Pics4ads to share some of her experiences with us. She told Depositphotos a lot about her work, her feelings about “grab these images for free” sites, her favorite lovely poppies and a lot more.

Turn your projects into Grand Slam events!

Every year, Wimbledon, a quiet suburb of London, turns into the world capital of tennis. For two weeks, the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club (AELTC) holds the Wimbledon Championships on its courts. It is arguably the most prestigious competition of all the four Grand Slam tournaments. Wimbledon is the only major tennis championship in the world where the matches are held on grass. Even though the ball generally stays in play much longer on clay courts (like at the French Open), tennis games on grass require different set of skills and faster reactions from the players.

Declare your independence from full-price images!

On the night of July 4, 1776, the second Continental Congress, consisting of representatives from the 13 British colonies in North America, already engaged in conducting a war of independence from colonial bondage, and creating a new independent government, completed the document formalizing their “Declaration of Independence” from Great Britain. After it was completed and signed, it was read aloud for all the people who gathered in front of the Continental Congress building in Philadelphia.

Remember your Father, but don’t forget the savings!

After the death of his wife, William Jackson Smart had to raise his 16-year-old daughter Sonora and her four younger brothers by himself. He not only succeeded at this task – raising five productive members of society – but he also instilled strong feelings of responsibility and gratitude in his children. Sonora wanted to thank her father, and inspired by the recent nationwide recognition of Mother's Day, she set out to establish a special holiday dedicated to the fathers in her hometown of Spokane, Washington.

Create for the sake of Life

International Mother Earth Day. The goal of this holiday, which was proclaimed official by the United Nations General Assembly in 2009, is to make humanity pay attention to the vulnerability of the Earth’s ecosystem. The first Earth Day, a celebration of Mother Earth, took place in 1970, following the lead of the activist U.S. senator from Wisconsin, Gaylord Nelson. A group of students led by Harvard graduate student Dennis Hayes, despite the lack of funding to organize a mass event, helped alert the public to the problem of ecology.
