Depositphotos Hits 5 Million Images

Stockphoto Agency Depositphotos has announced it now has 5 million images on its website


Depositphotos, the fastest-growing stock photo agency in the world, announces the addition of its 5 millionth image. This milestone underscores its steady growth and commitment to be a huge player in the microstock industry.

Depositphotos’ collection of premium, royalty-free images typically grows over 90,000 images each week. This rapid, steady growth ensures that users will consistently turn up fresh images during their searches. Whether you are a web designer, blogger, news editor or art director, Depositphotos makes it very easy, yet affordable, to buy a quality collection of premium, royalty-free stock photos and vector images.

Depositphotos’ 5 millionth image was created by Yuri Arcurs, world’s most successful microstock photographer based in Denmark. He added his newest collection of 17,000 premium images to Depositphotos, and it so happened that his image of a happy family walking on the beach took Depositphotos’ image library to the 5-million mark. Yuri joined Depositphotos as a contributor in March 2010, and his Depositphotos portfolio has been growing constantly. In addition to being a successful microstock artist, Yuri is known for creating free tools for photographers, photography tutorials and guides, and he is a much sought-after speaker at photography-related events.

Depositphotos continues to make significant improvements across the board, offering even more to its users. To communicate better with its customers, Depositphotos will also launch an interactive blog. It will cover the latest Depositphotos news; it will be filled with photography- and microstock-related articles written by Depositphotos staff as well as industry-recognized guest contributors.

“We are very excited to reach 5 million images in the 3 months after Depositphotos’ library exceeded 4 million stock images in September, and this industry record is just a small thing compared to what we have planned. Stay tuned to our news and you’ll be excited by the new features coming in the next months,” says Igor Kaliuzhnyi, Head of Depositphotos’ departments in Eastern and Western Europe.
