iStockphoto launches wordpress plugin

Microstock company iStockphoto has launched a plugin for bloggers that use the wordpress platform. The plugin allows users to use iStockphoto photography without leaving the blogs dashboard. The plugin was produced by Gutewolke, who had already provided the plugin with Fotolia content earlier.


When it comes to creating compelling blogs or websites, great images are mandatory. Today, thanks to a new plugin by GuteWolke, WordPress users can select, purchase and add iStockphoto images directly into posts or web pages without exiting the platform. The application pulls the tags from the actual blog post into iStock’s powerful search engine, which it uses to suggest appropriate images. The entire transaction can be completed in a matter of seconds.

The plugin was co-developed by Lee Torrens and Amos Struck and is available at www.microstockplugin.com. Images purchased via the application enjoy the same affordable pricing and licensing as those purchased directly from the iStockphoto site and may be used and repurposed in the same way.

“The sheer number of professional bloggers using WordPress makes them an ideal partner for iStockphoto,” said Danny Martin, director of business development for iStockphoto. “This plugin gives bloggers around the world instant access to the highest quality collection of royalty-free stock images. We think that’s pretty great and expect bloggers will feel the same way.”

With a huge selection of low-cost, high-quality images, iStockphoto is extremely popular with professional bloggers. These bloggers also appreciate the peace-of-mind they get in knowing that all images are safe to use and copyright or other intellectual property issues will never be a concern. In addition, bloggers who use iStockphoto on their blog or website are eligible to become part of the iStockphoto referral program, which provides them with an additional source of revenue.

The Microstock Photo Plugin is compatible with WordPress version 3.0. Users of older versions of the Plugin will need to upgrade in order for the iStock component to appear

  1. I think your blog post was really a solid kick off to a potential series of posts about this topic. A lot of people pretend to know what they’re preaching about when it comes to this area and in reality, nearly no one actually get it. You seem to really dominate it though, so I think you need to take it and run. Thanks a lot!
