StockXpert war eine schöne Quelle für Low-Budget Fotos, Grafiken Illustrationen in vernünftiger Qualität zu ganz kleinem Preis.
Nun ist es offiziell: StockXpert wird von iStockphoto aufgesaugt und verschwindet vom Markt. Ich finde das sehr, sehr schade.
Hier die offizielle Meldung, die per E-Mail an alle eingetragenen Benutzer rausging:
Dear Frank Pfabigan,
We are sorry to announce that beginning today, StockXpert will no longer sell new credits or accept new members. On February 11, 2010, searching and downloading at StockXpert will cease. This will be the end of image sales at StockXpert.
All SXP members have the opportunity to transfer their remaining credits to iStockphoto. iStock offers the highest quality affordable microstock imagery in the industry. Come and see for yourself. SXP credits will be honored 1 for 1 at iStockphoto. If you aren't already an iStock member, we encourage you to sign up now. Your credits will be transferred on February 11. If you miss that date, you will still be able to transfer your credits anytime over the next 6 months, until August 11, 2010.
To transfer your credits, login to your StockXpert account and follow the instructions on the front page.
The StockXpert.com website will remain accessible to members and active for certain functions. You will still be able to access your account history and purchase receipts. If you have any questions at all, please contact our Support team.
Please read more about the future of StockXpert here. Thank you for all of your support and patronage over the years. We look forward to seeing you at iStockphoto.
Goodbye, StockXpert. It's been a great time. We'll miss you...
