(PRNewsChannel) / July 09, 2010 / VANCOUVER / The lives of all creatives, from marketing managers to video editors to entrepreneurs, just got easier with the launch of ShotSpy, the Smart Stock Search Engine (www.ShotSpy.com). This video and photo search engine enables users to search the contents of multiple photo libraries and video stockhouses simultaneously. The site is now the largest marketplace for stock available today, delivering over 37 million images, according to ShotSpy.
The video and stock photo search engine says the site saves users time, energy, and money by aggregating the content of the leading photo and video microstock sites, such as Fotolia®, 123RF®, Dreamstime®, Crestock®, and ClipCanvas®. The content delivered is royalty-free and ranges from $1 - $70 per clip or image. Users can refine their search and save their favorite images and clips in their personal ShotBox.
“I used to spend hours searching site after site, trying to find the ideal image for my client,” said Shelley Dubois of Candid Communications, “but now I can see all the photos and video clips the best sites have available in one simple search.”
“We travel a lot and use sites like Expedia® and Orbitz® to see all our flight options quickly,” said Tiffany Steeves, cofounder of www.ShotSpy.com. "We wanted to create something that could mirror the ease and efficiencies of those search engines, but apply it to the stock photo and video industry.”
“The prices for the images and clips are incredible,” said company co-founder Sabrina Heinekey. “The photos and video clips on these sites are almost identical to those on the ‘macrostock’ sites, where the prices are literally a thousand times as expensive.”
The technology behind the engine was created by Fantom Design and a team of leading developers and designers.
