PhotoDune Members-Only Beta – Out Now!

We’re very excited to announce the members-only beta launch of our new stock photography marketplace, PhotoDune!

Access is now open for all members of the marketplaces who joined prior to June 25th 2011. At this stage access is restricted to those who joined after this date. We will be holding a completely open public beta in the near future. If you joined after the 25th of June, you will need to wait for our public beta, coming soon.

You can visit PhotoDune at http://photodune.net

PhotoDune is still in beta, so please let us know if you encounter any issues while using the new site. If reporting bugs, please be as detailed as possible so our devs can hunt down any issues and fix them asap, and wherever possible please try to include screenshots. With PhotoDune, we’d prefer if you posted bugs in the forums in the threads we’ve mentioned below, as the developers will be keeping a close eye on these areas and it will reduce the chances of the same error being reported twice.

We’ve set up a special thread for you to report small issues which you can access here. Alternatively, if you would prefer to start a new discussion on PhotoDune, you may do so under the Site Feedback tab.

We’ve all been working hard to make PhotoDune a fantastic place to buy and sell stock photography and we really hope you enjoy it! We appreciate your patience during the beta period as we iron out kinks and work on improving the site. If you have access, please do take a look around, check out what’s on offer, have a chat in the forums or even upload some of your own photos and get a head start on the competition!

We’re so excited to finally be opening the doors a little bit more as we edge closer to a full public release.

Thanks to everyone for their support and patience, and most of all, enjoy PhotoDune!! :D

Cheers, The Envato Marketplace Team

I’ve a complaint. (not only good words on the release, but what can i do…)
I’m a small author, wanted to upload some stuff. I did. My photos are related with business and meetings. Ok, so i do a search with “meetings” and 46 pages with results appears. 99,5% of all the results comes from just 2 authors, one of them has almost 40.000!! photos already published. Do think small authors like me have any possiblity of success in this situation? I’m afraid no.

This is really discouraging for new and small authors trying to enter in this new marketplace. Allowing such number of images of just one author (with the site just released!) breaks the logical system of any marketplace. Imagine one author with the same number of WP templates on ThemeForest, do you think new authors will upload new stuff when is almost impossible to be located by any user?

:(

I’m not sure there are enough photos yet ;)

Also, I’m no photographer, but…I can’t help but agree with pezflash
