What’s Different About PhotoDune?

There’s no shortage of things that set PhotoDune apart from a regular microstock startup, and also distinguish it from the established agencies.

The primary difference is the background of the company, having successfully grown eight other digital asset marketplaces over the past five years. This experience not only gives Envato a head start with the technology experience, but brings a large existing customer base right in to PhotoDune.   Envato membership passed 1 million members in September, most of whom are buyers with registered payment details.

The team has also used some original ideas to differentiate the agency from established microstock agencies.   First, the previews are huge!   They’re heavily watermarked to make them un-usable, but buyers get a very detailed view of the image before making their buying decision. Second, extended licenses are priced based on the size purchased.   This original idea is based on direct buyer feedback and helps open up the market for extended usage while still generating higher prices for uses that require bigger files.

Our verdict

Great website with many features, and what is most important, with excellent financial reward opportunity for stock photographers. Contributors with skills, in the field of graphic design, 3D rendering, website theme design, videographers or music creators will find their place for selling stock media on other parts of Envato Market, such as ThemeForest, CodeCanyon, VideoHive, AudioJungle, GraphicRiver, 3DOcean or ActveDen.
