Customize Your Plan, Maximize Your Budget
One of the great things about Depositphotos is that you can choose which plan works best for you in purchasing your images. You have three options: the Daily Subscription Plan, the Monthly Subscription Plan, and the Pay-As-You-Go Credits.
The Daily Subscription Plan lets you download photos and vector images of any size every day up to your daily limit. Your daily limit can be as low as 5 images per day to 200 images per day. By using this plan, you can purchase images for as low as $0.50 per image.
On the other hand, the Monthly Subscription Plan lets you download photos and vector images of any size any time up to your monthly limit that ranges from 5 images to 5,000 images per month. You can get the images you want at $0.63 per image.
If you need bulk images, then it’s also relatively cheaper to use the Daily or Monthly Subscription Plan. The higher the limit, the cheaper each image gets.
The Pay-As-You-Go Credits plan lets you download photos, vectors, and videos of any size, at any time, for up to one year using credits. The lowest credit is 30 while the highest is 500, or you can customize the credits you want to have.
Using the Pay-As-You-Go Credits, you can choose the image resolution together with its size and see the corresponding price in credits. For example, you have already found the image that you would like to purchase with the price of 10 credits. Therefore, simple math would tell you would have a balance of 20 credits, which is the equivalent of $18 since 1 credit is equal to $0.90. So for 30 credits, you can buy 30 standard images worth $27 only.
In the end, it all depends on your needs and capacity for the type of plan you’d like to use. And when you’ve decided on that, you’re all set into discovering and having the most amazing photos captured by the most amazing people on earth — all in one place.
