iStockPhotoiStockphoto website redesign : iStockphoto, the world's most visited online stock photography site, debuted sweeping site improvements today. iStockphoto's 600,000 plus member community can expect dramatic improvements to site navigation, speed and functionality. Of particular interest to designers is the new BuyRequest tool, available on the site by the end of January, which formally extends iStockphoto's offerings beyond stock photography by allowing buyers to tender a bid for a specific project to the site's photographer / illustrator community. In addition, iStockphoto has streamlined the search for photos by creating 5,000 individual categories, and now offers further options for dynamic licensing.

"From the beginning, we have listened to our community, and tried to exceed their expectations," said Bruce Livingstone, President, CEO and Founder of iStockphoto. "These latest improvements will have dramatic impact for all of our members and further our mandate to integrate iStockphoto into the creative process and the desktop. Powerful new features such as BuyRequest demonstrate our commitment to fostering a great community and direct relationships between buyers and sellers of photography."

iStockphoto online stock photo - Enhanced workflow
This multi-million dollar enhancement project is the result of iStockphoto's combined investment in new hardware and software infrastructure improvements, and months of work by iStockphoto's internal development teams. The infrastructure improvements have resulted in a 10x improvement in the site's performance, which will allow the community to use iStockphoto more efficiently, with faster searches and downloads. The AJAX-based redesign provides instant feedback, fewer page loads, a more application-like interface and an enhanced workflow. The redesign also includes several new features to further expand iStockphoto's functionality.

iStockphoto site - Expanded functionality and BuyRequest
iStockphoto has added several advanced capabilities to expand the value of iStockphoto for both designers and photographers who use the site. BuyRequest allows iStockphoto members to contact photographers directly for specific projects. Members can offer "Finder's Fees" for image library research, make "Open Offers" for custom images and even hire specified photographers to shoot "On Spec." It offers a formal structure for the process that benefits both designers seeking a particular image and the artists bidding on the job.

Online stock photography - License and Category
Dynamic Licensing eliminates the need for manually generating special license agreements, with an automated license creation interface. Created for iStockphoto clients whose requirements may fall outside of the standard license restrictions, Dynamic Licensing streamlines the licensing process. This revolutionary approach relaxes strict royalty-free contracts, and gives users unprecedented options on usage rights. Improved Image Categorization iStockphoto has created more than 5,000 categories to describe its collection of 575,000-plus files, ensuring that users find the exact type of image they are seeking as quickly as possible. These expanded category hierarchies also eliminate issues of incorrect spelling and keyword synonyms.

Stock Photos online - Digital content
New hardware has quadrupled the site's processing power for increased speed and capacity, and a redundant data center has been installed for increased reliability. iStockphoto has also chosen the EdgeSuite Delivery service of Akamai Technologies, Inc. to deliver its image and thumbnail content, resulting in increased site availability, faster page downloads and improved reliability. With EdgeSuite, iStockphoto has experienced consistent content delivery performance improvements of between 800% and 1600%. The iStockphoto site redesign and infrastructure improvements were unveiled today. The new Buy Request and Dynamic Licensing features will be available on the site by the end of January.
