TUCSON, Ariz., Aug. 22, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Freerange Stock, a leading source of free stock images for commercial use, has launched a major website redesign with new search features, a redesigned brand and thousands of new photos and illustrations. The fully-responsive, fully-secure, site offers an improved user experience on all platforms, with larger image previews and better access to Freerange's growing library. The new site is live now at https://freerangestock.com.
One of the most prominent new features is the ability to separately search for images designated as Photos or Illustrations. Previously, all image types were grouped together, requiring users to look though many pages of results.
"We've received thousands of great illustrations from many contributors, and we're very proud to represent these images," says Chance Agrella, President of Freerange Stock. "Our weakness was our inability to separate out those illustrations from photographic results in a user search. We've grown to a point where adding this function is a necessity."
The process of previewing and choosing images has also been updated and improved. After performing a keyword search – whether for photos, illustrations, or both - users browse through large thumbnail images on pages of full-screen search results. Clicking through to new detail pages, users will find preview images more than double the previous size, plus new download options. Images can now be downloaded in one of three sizes, depending on intended use - from small images for bloggers to full size, high-resolution images for print designers. If desired, users can opt to send the selected image directly to the powerful free online editing application Pixlr for recoloring, addition of text or other manipulation before downloading.
Photos and illustrations uploaded to Freerange Stock are licensed under Equalicense (http://www.equalicense.com) - a simple license that does not require attribution and allows nearly any commercial use short of resale and redistribution. "We want our images to foster the success of our users," says Agrella, "but it's also important that we protect the rights of our contributing photographers."
It's very important for business users to properly and legally license image content. To ensure the integrity of the image catalog, Freerange only accepts content from original creators and copyright holders. Image reviewers examine each submission both to ensure high technical quality and to weed out any submission that may be of questionable legality.
In addition to in-house photos and user-submitted images, Freerange has expanded its collection of curated CC0 licensed content from around the web. The site's user base of over 600,000 registered users now has access to over 100,000 images.
