This Kickstarter Project Wants To Change The Way Images Are Shared Online
By John Yong, 21 Aug 2014
Are you an image owner whose images are constantly being infringed without proper attribution? Or perhaps you own a website or blog and require high quality images without having to pay more than what you actually use.
If you answered “yes” to the questions above, you should check out this Kickstarter project by IMGembed.
With the goal of providing a win-win solution for both image owners and users, IMGembed is a platform that enables image licensing by actual impression numbers—meaning content users only pay for the actual number of views.
For image owners, it helps them control where and how their images are being used. It also lets owners monetize their images based on popularity and attributes them back automatically.
The startup, which has been bootstrapped to-date, has turned to Kickstarter to help raise funds for growth and product development.
Millions of images have been uploaded to IMGembed, and organizations such as Condé Nast, Fashion TV and Huffington Post have been seen using its services.
