Nashville, TN – May 31, 2012 – Today Dreamstime, the leading stock photography community, launched Timeline Images, an online image database for businesses and consumers interested in updating their social media profiles with high-quality, fresh content for an extremely low price of onedollar.
As Facebook transitions its more than 901 million active users to the timeline format, the demand for unique cover photos will increase. The cover photo is becoming increasinglyimportant as it provides users and businesses the opportunity to personalize profiles and connect with important communities on a deeper level. TimelineImages currently offers a diverse collection, giving full access to Dreamstime's entire commercial collection of 14 million images, including alarge range of images specifically formatted to use as Facebook cover photos. Unlike content “found” on the Internet these images are safe to download and legal to use.
Since the inception of social networks, the importance of profile imagery has evolved from a single profile photo to the introduction of Facebook’s Timeline that allows people to visually represent events and activities that matter most to them, such as their interests, photos and work history. With more than 300 million photos uploaded to Facebook daily, Timeline Images will provide a wide range of legal images to meet the growing demand for compelling content and diverse user needs.
“Social media has forever changed the way that people share and use images. Gone are the days when agencies monopolized access to content -- intoday’s world anyone with a camera and Internet connection can publish their images and whether or not they are successful is left to those viewing it,” said Serban Enache, CEO of Dreamstime. “The challenge with this new model comes when people start distributing these images socially without understanding the potential repercussions of copyright infringement. With the introduction of Timeline Images, Dreamstime is not only serving the appetite that both businesses and consumers have for interesting content, but also addressing the need for legitimate and safe to use images.”
Timeline Images is available to the public starting today. The cost to download content is one dollar per image, with no additional fees. For a limited time new users of Timeline Images will also receive three free imagedownloads on Dreamstime.com
