InMagine Closing

Posted on 6/2/2017 by Jim Pickerell | Printable Version | Comments (0)

InMagine has announced to its contributors that it will be shutting down its website on 30 September 2017 and will no longer be distributing your images, vectors and/or video on our website after that date.

However, they have a Premium content section known as EVO on their associated “micro” platform that will represent some of the premium content from InMagine. (For more about the EVO section and its rules check here.

They decided on this move because customers have been telling them that they want a simple search solution that gives them access to premium content and the lower priced options, all on the same platform. Customers may search for just EVO images or default to everything.

Every EVO image is tagged under a specific price tier with prices based on file size delivered. The tiers are Silver (5 to 20 credits), Gold (10 to 40 credits), Titanium (20 to 80 credits) and Platinum (40 to 160 credits). For more detailed information please refer to our EVO pricing table. Credit prices range from $0.85 to $1.00 based on the size of the credit package purchased.

Subscription customers are not allowed to download EVO images as part of their subscriptions. All EVO images must be purchased using credits.

Some contributors who have had images in both the EVO collection and the 123RF’s normal “micro” pricing collection say that their images have tended to earn more money when they are in the micro pricing category (due to sales volume) than when they were in InMagine or 123RF’s EVO collection.

This consolidation may be part of 123RF’s move to launch an IPO, and possibly go public on the Australian Securities Exchange, Singapore Exchange or the Tokyo Stock Exchange,
