Its been a while since my last post about Fotolia. Mostly mangiaphoto readers already know a lot about this great agency but it would be very nice to write something about them again. They deserve a lot of attention because in the last five years since I met them, they made a huge step forward.
Two weeks ago I received a kind offer to test their subscription model which is a great option if you need images every day (bloggers, marketing agencies, web site designers, etc…).
Before we start, lets write something about the subscription plans.
Subscription plan is a affordable offer where you will have the lowest price per image download (as low as 14 cents per image). As I said above, it is great option for every day use. With subscription plan, you won’t need credits.
First you can choose between standard or premium subscription plan. In both plans, you can choose to download from 25 to 250 images per day but while the standard subscription plan is limited to maximum 4Mpix images, the premium plan doesn’t have any resolution limitations.
Also, you can choose between individual or multi user plans. Individual subscription is a great option for small companies with one buyer. Multi user plan is a great option for a large companies where administrator can buy and direct access to sub-accounts. Admin will be able to control downloaded images, number of daily downloaded images, balance number of downloads between sub-accounts, etc…
The subscription length can be 1 month, 3 months, 6 months or 1 year. Fotolia will offer auto renew option and you can easily disable this option on the subscription detail page on your member area.
For individual subscription plan the cheapest option is 199€ for standard package (1 month, 25 images per day, single user). With this option the price per file is 0.27 €. The same package but for multi user accounts starts from 299€.
If you plan to download vector or video files, keep in mind that one vector file counts as 3 downloads and one video file as a 10 downloads.
As a start, I would like to present my great passion – fly fishing. Please enjoy in my selection and great Fotolia images
