How does StockPodium work?
Currently we offer advanced search capabilities for finding stock images using text and visual search. If you find an image you have to buy credits in order to buy it. All images in our search results are right managed and have strict distribution licenses.
How can I search for stock images?
There are different approaches you can use to best suite your personal preferences:
- Key word (phrase) search - simply type in proper key words and hit Find It! button to see what we can offer
- Choose visually promising image among the results of keyword search. You can start with keyword search and then click on the similar ~ link bellow the image that visually looks similar to what you are looking for. In result, you get more appropriate results. If you are still not pleased with the search results, you can and/change keywords or even choose another image as visual base.
- Type or paste URL of an image as visual search query or filter. This can be suitable if you have found an image on the web that is appropriate for your needs, but its license does not allow commercial usage. StockPodum will find similar images with the right licensing
- Upload an image to use for visual search - handy when you have a reference or sample image to start the search with
