Rasters are coming (finally)!!!!

I’m doing a serious happy dance tonight: Check out my latest post on iStock!

We’re happy to announce an upcoming project that’s very long overdue.

In the near future, we will be moving our existing JPEG illustrations from under their current categorization as ‘Photos’ to ‘Illustrations’. This includes any artwork that isn’t vector-based: Drawings, paintings, collages, digital paintings, and so on.

This has been a much-requested feature for a very long time and we’re thrilled that it will soon be coming to iStock.

We know there will be a lot of questions so we’ve prepared an initial FAQ. We will have more information once this project launches so please stay tuned.

Questions or comments? Please visit the Raster Illustration Discussion Thread. Thanks!

What will this mean for clients?

What will this mean for contributors?

What does this mean for existing JPEG illustrations classified as ‘Photos’?

What if my photos accidentally get moved into ‘Illustrations’?

What if I have JPEG illustrations but they didn’t get moved into ‘Illustrations’?

I upload 3D renders, does this mean my files will be moved too?

What about scans of historic engravings/etchings?

Will this affect file prices?
