Stockphoto.com was finally launched on the 9th of September 2013.
Stockphoto.com is an online image marketplace where photographers sell stock photos (or more accurately, usage rights to the photos) to buyers for a one-time fee. For each photo that Stockphoto.com sells, we pass this revenue on to the photographer (i.e. the owner of the image) and keep a small commission as our fee. The buyer downloads the 'un-watermarked' photo(s) immediately upon payment.
