Instant offers new opportunities

With Fotolia Instant (http://www.fotolia.com/instant), iPhone photographers can take photos from their mobile phones, filter them, tag them and upload them directly to Fotolia. Thanks to a new filter and easy exposure control, the new Instant app allows users to take better, more esthetic shots without compromising image quality and resolution.

Photos being submitted to the Instant Collection must meet the same quality and esthetic standards as other images for sale on Fotolia, as well as meet the legal requirements related to image rights and intellectual property as specified by Fotolia.  The Fotolia Instant app makes it easy for photographers to upload digital Model Releases to the site, directly from their Smartphone, making the process simple and efficient.

New collection offers fresh images at affordable prices

Fotolia's Instant Collection offers users a new opportunity to enhance their visual communications with spontaneous, high-quality photos, which are legally sound, for only a few dollars. All images sold on Fotolia's platform within the Instant Collection will go for the price of 3 Credits (about $3 depending on your package).

The Instant Collection features images that cater to a specific, more spontaneous and in-the-moment look. "The increase in social networking and the continuous improvements to the quality of Smartphone cameras have given birth to a more spontaneous and immediate iconographic culture. It's much less fixed and formatted than before," explains Fotolia's CEO and co-founder, Oleg Tscheltzoff.  "The incredible success photography apps for Smartphones have seen proves just how much our society loves to share informal and spontaneous moments."

Downloadable for free as of today in the Apple Store, Fotolia Instant will also be available for Android next month. An iPad application will also be launched shortly that will allow users to browse Fotolia's library, and download directly images to their device or Dropbox account.
