- The new royalty-free image collection from Central Stock, brings exceptional
photographic images from seven independent publishers around the world. This collection
has to be seen to be appreciated.
__ The Central Stock Starter Kit Vol. 1 is hopefully
the first in a long list of products from this quality-minded company, and comes
with its own lavishly illustrated, 160-page image catalog and CD browser. This kit
represents 32 high-res image volumes from the Central Stock Collection. Starter Kit
Vol. 2 has already hit the streets, and has more than doubled the collection.
- __ Agfa reports that Central Stock is the
photo equivalent of their Creative Alliance exclusive typeface collection, which
speaks highly of the product from the starting line.
- The seven publishers contributing to the Central Stock collection are: Creativ
Collection, Classic PIO Partners, RubberBall Productions, takeStock Inc., Transmission
Digital Publishing, Vivid Details, and Visual Language. The 32 volumes in the Central
Stock collection provide creatives with a wide range of image themes-unusual backgrounds
like old paint, rustic wood, leathers, and retro fabrics; classic objects from today
and yesteryear; faces and people in the most intriguing of poses; 16th century maps
and motifs with stunning detail; and urban and nature images to illustrate any mood
or concept. This group brings you "no-compromise, fiercely independent images
that rival or surpass traditional stock photography."
__ The 160-page printed catalog displays images up to
3x4" in size, rather than the chintzy thumbnails provided by others.
__ The Central Stock Starter Kit sells for $39.95, and
contains the printed catalog, a CD browser with comp quality images, and 7 bonus
high-res images. All images are drum scanned, and ready for use at 300dpi or greater,
and are up to 40MB in size. All images of people are model released for hassle-free
use -- both Mac and Windows95/NT compatible.
Bravo! Central gets our Stock Photography Editor's Choice this year.
