New On-Line Photo Stock Library
New Zealand now has its first photo stock library operating fully on-line.
This new internet based business will enable web page builders, illustrators and graphic designers to access photographs via their computer.
The site provides a comprehensive photo search facility and once the viewer is registered with the site the images can be purchased and downloaded to their own computer. Payment is made directly using the ASB Banks Online Credit Card Payment system.
Jim Higgins, NZ Internet Society Chairman, launching the web site at Wellington's multimedia centre, e-vision, last Wednesday welcomed the new site, noting the development alliance between Katipo Communications and Wellington City Council's former Info City manager, Charles Bagnall.
"Charles was instrumental in guiding the
establishment of Wellington's fibre optic network, City
Link and Katipo have been developing key web sites from the
beginning of the WWW", Mr Higgins said. "Wellington's
broad band network will allow graphic designers easy and
rapid access to the images
they want from this new site."
A feature of on-line stock libraries is that they sell on a no-royalty basis. Images are charged for on a file size basis, this file size being a key determinant of how and where the image can be used.
