Andreas Gauger, Chairman of 1 and 1 Internet commented, ”With Fotolia, we have gained a partner that will revolutionize the legal stock photography industry with their innovative business model. The customer pays only for the resolution that they really need from a digital picture and may use the picture as often and as long as they would like. We are offering our hosting customers easy access and financial advantages to legal and inexpensive images for their websites.”
Oleg Tscheltzoff, President of Fotolia, added, ”1 and 1 Internet has a lot of users who are always in need of images for illustrating websites, blogs, newsletters, presentations, print catalogs, or advertising and we will try to help them save up to 90% of their current budget for images.”
Fotolia offers only royalty-free images and photos. Once that image is purchased, it can be used as long and as often as necessary for web site illustrating, digital advertising, blog, print campaigns, package designs, or printing on T-shirts and mugs.
