The Microstock Photo Power Search Tool makes searching multiple libraries for the best microstock stock photos easier than ever.
The Microstock Photo Power Search Extension makes it easy to find awesome microstock photographs for your website or blog, for your design or print projects, or for any other reason you need great photographs or illustrations for a low price.
The extension popup displays search results for either new images or each agency's 'best match' search for upto 13 microstock image licensing agencies in a neat grid. Clicking any of these thumbnails will open a larger preview (in a cool lightbox format). Click the image if you want to license it and a new tab will open with the agency page, or if you just like it, hit the 'Like' button and it will be shared to your facebook friends. Liked images will also be added to the StockPhotoFeeds.com Stock Photo Social Index, so is even a good way to promote your own stock portfolio for photographers.
The 13 included agencies are:
123 Royalty Free
The plugin also requests permission for access to Facebook so the Like button in the image-preview view can work (use it as a quick and easy way to save the link to images for later reference).
Note: iStockphoto are not (and cannot) be included because they don't allow their images to be displayed alongside those of other agencies.
This is an expansion of a firefox microstock addon which has been live for almost 3 years, so I thought it was finally time to bring it to Chrome. The extension is lightweight and fast, and makes it really easy to search the agencies for royalty free images to license for as little as $1. It's a great way to quickly, easily, and most importantly legally obtain amazing photos, illustrations, clipart or textures for your site or project.
