Introducing Our New Stock Image Tool!

By Kat (SoCast) Mar 14, 2024 | 11:01 AM

We’re excited to share some updates about our new stock image feature (coming soon!) that is designed to significantly enhance your content creation process. Our commitment to providing high-quality, safe, and relevant resources for your websites has led us to make a few changes, including a new stock image provider, updated tier system, and improved user experience.

Upgraded User Experience

We’ve revamped the stock image search functionality, making it smoother, faster, and more intuitive. This upgrade simplifies the process of finding the perfect image for your content and improves how attributions are managed, ensuring proper credit is easily and accurately applied.

Editorial Image Library

One of the most exciting additions is access to an extensive library of editorial images. This new resource is particularly valuable for news and music websites, offering photos related to current events, celebrities, sports, and politics. These high-impact images can elevate your content, providing visual context to stories that matter to your audience.

Tailored Access With New Tiers

To align with the enhanced offerings, we’ve introduced a new tier system, priced per station to provide flexibility and scalability:

  • Plus Tier: 10 images per month per station, ideal for smaller operations.
  • Pro and Enterprise Tiers: 20 images per month per station, catering to the needs of larger stations or those with more extensive content requirements.
  • Premium Add-On: 50 images per month per station for those who need a broad range of high-quality images to support their content.

If you require more images, than what is currently available to you, please reach out to support.

Introducing The Image Compliance Tool

Understanding the frustration of receiving a takedown notice for an image you downloaded years ago, we’ve introduced the Image Compliance Tool. This feature aids in reviewing and clearing out any old images from your library that might not meet current copyright and usage standards, helping you avoid potential legal issues. While we suggest you use this tool and remove any offending images to limit potential exposure, there is no timeline for when this needs to be completed. However we suggest doing as soon as possible.

Seamless Transition, No Action Required

The transition to the new stock image search will be seamless, requiring no action on your part. Your access to the upgraded features and new image libraries will automatically replace the current system. Once the new image search is launched, we recommend running the Image Compliance Tool to review and clear out any old images that might not meet the new standards.

Why These Updates Matter

These enhancements are all about empowering you to create more engaging, visually stunning, and compliant content. Whether you’re reporting on the latest news, covering the music scene, or sharing insights on political developments, our goal is to support you with the right tools for success.

We’re here to assist you through this transition and answer any questions you may have. Please reach out to support@socastdigital.com if you have any concerns.
