Did you guys see this new announcement concerning PhotoDune?
Now that’s a bold move if you ask me:
It’s time for a new approach.
Over the next year or so, we plan to make a series of improvements to how we do photos at Envato, across three main areas:
- Our photos offering to customers: We’ve introduced new quality standards as the starting point for transforming PhotoDune into a finely-tuned, quality-driven collection. In 2017, we’ll also be giving customers a photo subscription option via Envato Elements.
- Our relationship with authors: The biggest change we’re making here is to switch from reviewing items to selecting authors who we trust to upload only the best quality content. We’re also going to let authors decide item prices on PhotoDune. This means more control for authors and more time for us to develop resources and tools for author success.
- Our photos platform and the technology behind it: Our UX for uploading, storing and showcasing photos and its underlying infrastructure are in serious need of an upgrade. Our main goal here is to lay the groundwork for future improvements.
Could this be a solution for the ever-increasing quailty-vs-quantity-problem on Audiojungle, too? What do you think?
