As you know... We like sites around user generated content. It's fun. It makes people creative.
One of the ideas that I've been considering way before we even wanted to make OneCanvas is a Stock Imagery site. Since OC has a lot of photographers I think it can be a helpful addition to the family in more ways than one.
First off this site will be based on a Free/Paid concept. Users will submit their work that they want to have on display agree to a simple contract and go from there. All images (unless expressly requested otherwise) will be available in a lower format for free non-commercial use. The more improve quality will be available for commercial use for a fee. Currently the idea is to have a 75:25 (Artist:Site) split of sales.
The concept will be beneficial for people who can't get listed on the major stock imagery sites and could provide to be a little more profitable as you won't be paid pennies.
I've not worked out all the ideas on this yet, but I'd like to have something going before the end of the year.
Let me know what you think... as well as potential ideas for this project.
