How to find Bigstock in your account

Emma's integration with Bigstock means you now have access to million of stock images without ever having to leave the campaign you're editing.

 

Bigstock integration works exclusively with Emma's all-new drag & drop editor. Search by keyword or phrase, then purchase your image with just a couple of clicks.

Great idea!  I can see clients asking if the images they purchase are accessible outside of Emma.  Are the images web resolution only or would they be able to use the same image purchased through BigStock in offline materials?

Great question, Marci. When you purchase the image in Emma, you're agreeing to Bigstock's terms of use (http://www.bigstockphoto.com/usage.html). Hope this helps!

It looks like clients will see the $2.99 price point and expect to see exactly that charge per image on their next invoice, is that right?

Dustin, we'll add the charges to the invoice we send your organization, and each line item charge will include details on which client account made the purchase. You can then pass those charges along to your users through your own billing process.

If we buy the bigstock photo via Emma, can we also download it for other web usages in accordance with the bigstock photo usage terms--like on on a website?  Are the bigstock images limited to given sizes and resolutions?
Emma

Yes, Eileen, you can download it (with a right click) and use a purchased image in accordance with the terms. The Permitted Web/Electronic Uses section states that image cannot be larger than 1200 x 800 pixels.

Will images from Bigstock automatically be a part of the new editor? Or will I have the ability to turn it off/on like I do with surveys & the template gallery?

Debbie, there's no off switch for Bigstock -- we're introducing this as a standard feature for the new editor, so any subaccounts that have the new editor turned on will also have access to this integration.

sorry, I realized that right after I posted my question. Thanks so much for the reply though! And thank you too for the reply regarding the user's use of the image (I posted both questions). Your reply is helpful & I'll pass that info on to my clients. Thank you to all at Emma for another great feature & for continuing to improve & make Emma the best email marketing service ever - all your efforts help my business & my clients too!!

It seems like once a person purchases an image from Bigstock, they'll be able to right click the image in the campaign & save it to their own computer, which means they could use the image outside Emma. Will I be held liable If one of my clients does not follow Bigstock's terms of use?

Another great question. Yes, right clicking will let you save that image to your computer. The user clicking to purchase the image agrees to the terms, so he or she is responsible for using the image correctly. Hope this helps, Debbie.

I am now confused after reading the comments here and reading the terms of the agreement from the link posted above.  It sounds like we can use the image as many times as we want for print and web for personal or commercial use (not to resell image) but we will have to pay $2.99 for each time we use it.  Is this correct as it is stated below?

In the terms it states in Part I #3 :" Each separate use of an Image downloaded hereunder requires a separate payment. For example, if an Image is used as part of a website design and in a business card, the Image license must be paid for two times.  This is accomplished by downloading and paying for the Image as many times as necessary. Using an Image in multiple products without purchasing separate licenses for such uses is a violation of this Agreement and might expose you to liability for copyright infringement. "

Thank you,
Emma

Toby, it sounds like you're interpreting those terms correctly. I'm sorry those earlier comments got confusing. While it's technically possible to right click an image and save it to your computer, Bigstock's terms require you to repurchase the image for each channel its used. Thanks for asking us to clarify.

1. We have an agency account servicing customers in New Zealand. We can see it costing us money when clients expect to pay $NZ2.99 per image whereas it is actually $US2.99. Yikes.

2. When I try to purchase an image I am advised that I have to upgrade my account. Not sure how or where to go from here.

Trev, you bring up a good point about the charge. I'll mention that to some folks here and we'll see about getting more specific. 

It sounds like you might be using an Emma account that's in demo mode. You should be able to purchase an image in an activated account. If you're still having trouble, let our support team know at support@myemma.com
