The Marketplace is the spot where original content buying and selling takes place; a true images archive where you can sell, request and buy photos.
If you decide to buy a photo on line, you can use this original images archive to buy pictures, illustrations and -soon- videos found on the platform. When you decide to buy the image, you become the owner of the copyright, and you can choose to resell the material or use it for private or commercial purposes.
How to sell photos on line with Gallerist
If you are interested in buying images, the sale can take place in two ways.
First, through direct purchase, which can be done at any time. To buy images protected by the digital watermark (such as illustrations and graphic art and soon also videos) you simply need to ask its artist. If you are interested in buying a photo (that is presented in low-definition, to protect its copyright) you can request improvement just by tapping on it, and then decide if it’s what you are looking for.
Once the image has been bought, it will no longer be available to the Gallerist community but will officially become property of the buyer, who can decide to either resell it or use it in other ways.
You can also buy images through the online auction: the artist can set up an auction and choose to make it either public or specific only to the users he/she thinks could be interested in his/her professional photos. In this case, if you wish to take part in the auction, you need to ask the author. At this point, the seller will upload his/her work to the images archive, and decide the starting price of the auction.
The Gallerist marketplace is where you can search for and find beautiful photos for your website. In the archive you can find professional photos but also launch a call to find exactly what you’re looking for.
Search and buy images created specifically for you!
Can’t find material that suits you? Don’t worry! Gallerist gives you the possibility to launch a call to the authors that are part of the photography community and ask them to make something specifically for you.
Ask them to come up with the image you need and choose between the proposals created following your guidelines.
For example: you have a food blog and you’re looking for an image to visually explain your duck-à-l’orange recipe. Launch your call on Gallerist: you can find the professional photo you’re looking for, or be inspired by the proposals.
