We kept the customer in mind at every step of this redesign
New York, NY (PRWEB) March 4, 2010
Bigstock, one of the world's leading online royalty-free stock image agencies, announced today the launch of its eagerly anticipated website overhaul, http://www.bigstock.com, built to provide the best online experience for buyers looking to purchase high quality stock images via affordable credit-based payment options.
The site, designed in collaboration with Shutterstock, the world’s largest subscription-based stock photo company, reflects the company’s deep knowledge of the global stock image marketplace, and its commitment to expand Bigstock’s global presence after acquiring the company last year.
In addition to its sleek new interface, the site boasts a full spectrum of functions to improve user experience, including advanced search capabilities, more intuitive navigation, larger image previews and thumbnails, and improved tools for contributors. Bigstock also launched a new blog dedicated to covering company news, as well as updates from buyers, contributors and guest bloggers.
"We kept the customer in mind at every step of this redesign," said Jon Oringer, CEO of Bigstock. "These upgrades to Bigstock, along with our proven payment and licensing models, will help image buyers get the right image fast and ensure the continued success of our contributors."
An important feature of the site is its vastly improved search engine, which has been enhanced to provide the perfect balance of quality, relevance, popularity and freshness in search results. The engine’s specialized search algorithm will enable buyers to quickly and simply find the perfect stock photo, vector or illustration for their needs.
Bigstock was founded in 2004 with the goal of providing affordable, royalty-free images – perfect for any type of design project. Since then, Bigstock has grown into one of the world’s largest credit-based stock image agencies, offering millions of high quality photographs, illustrations, and vectors. Bigstock’s extensive image library, its affordability and strong search engine have made the company an important resource for image buyers worldwide. In 2009, Shutterstock, the world’s largest subscription-based stock image company, acquired Bigstock. Bigstock, based in New York City, is a wholly owned subsidiary of Shutterstock.
