Image Libraries

The internet has made images more accessible than ever, while the ubiquity of smartphones has made us all photographers of sorts. But image formats have not kept up.

Insufficient protection over images has meant their distribution is almost impossible to control. As a result, photographers, image libraries and others in the imaging industry have seen traditional licensing revenues decline.

●  Around 1.8 trillion images uploaded daily
●  Approx. 2.5 billion images stolen daily
●  $2 billion stock photography industry in decline

Security and Control

The security of images is fundamental to image libraries. Without it, it’s impossible to maximize their value and commercial interest.

SmartFrame’s image-streaming technology ensures visibility over assets is always maintained – regardless of where an image is found online – while appearance and distribution are controlled from one centralized location.

Revenue Generation – Image Licensing

Images are traditionally licensed by issuing the licensee with a JPEG. Once the licensee has this file, the licensor has little to no control over its use, and little ability to enforce the terms of any license.

SmartFrame provides complete control over licensing-term management, whether the terms themselves relate to timeframe, geography or another variable.

Revenue Generation – Advertising

As traditional licensing models becoming increasingly challenging, image libraries are striving to find new ways to monetize their content.

SmartFrames cannot be downloaded, but they provide the image owner with a unique way to monetize their content. When an image is licensed and used as a SmartFrame, the image becomes a digital advertising board for the image owner. Doing this at scale creates a monetizable advertising network and an additional lucrative revenue stream.

Using a combination of metadata, AI image recognition, domain content and viewer location, image owners can use their new advertising network in several ways:

Unrivaled Image Quality

Image libraries need to present a premium product to maximize the revenue potential of their image portfolio. Watermarked, low-resolution images, which are often used to protect high-resolution content, offer a sub-optimum visual experience.

Thanks to the principle of image streaming, SmartFrame serves secure, high-resolution images without any impact on website load times and general performance.
