With the continuing growth of our image library, which now boasts over two million royalty free images, it's imperative that we provide users with search features that provide both efficiency and ease of use
Davis, CA (PRWEB) May 21, 2008
BigStockPhoto.com, one of the world's largest online, low-cost stock image providers, today announced the formal launch of RapidView Image Display, an important new time-saving feature, and marked a new milestone with the approval and upload of the site's two millionth royalty free image. RaidView Image Display is a new visual search tool aimed at significantly fast tracking image search and selection on the site.
With RapidView Image Display, users doing a search can browse and immediately view up to four times more images at once, within a compressed visual area-allowing them to scan and locate the image they need in about half the time as conventional search displays.
"With the continuing growth of our image library, which now boasts over two million royalty free images, it's imperative that we provide users with search features that provide both efficiency and ease of use," said Tim Donahue, founder and CEO of BigStockPhoto.com. "We're extremely proud of both the astounding quantity and stunning quality of images on BigStockPhoto.com and are thrilled to offer this new feature, which gives photo buyers quicker and easier access to our incredible royalty-free image library."
Conventional search displays typically occupy screen space with text data related to each photo such as: the title of the photo, photographer, and number of downloads. Instead, RapidView Image Display eliminates the text data and displays a mosaic of images matching the search criteria-thus allowing more images to be displayed at once and enabling users to visually scan more search results instantaneously. Depending upon a user's preference, they can toggle back and forth between the two different image display modes with a simple click of the mouse.
A sneak peak of the new RapidView Image Display in action is available by visiting: BigStockPhoto's RapidView Image Display feature. The new feature is also accessible from the BigStockPhoto home page.
