Image Library Industry

The last ten years have been a time of great change for people buying and selling image rights. Pricing structures have changed and evolved  to suit the customer and the demands of a mass market, and there are  a number of different routes to market . 

Flexibility is the key, as photographers and image libraries jostling for sales will confirm. There are too many images out there, but there is room at present for the exclusive and specialised as well as the ’pile ‘em high and sell ‘em cheap’ variety.
