What is "microstock"?

Affordable image agencies such as YAY Micro are called microstock. Microstock agencies sell digital content at low prices. The content is created and uploaded by the site's community contributors. The contributors get a 50 % commission every time their content is bought and downloaded.

For customers this entails the availability of a large amount of both professional and "odd" images and illustrations at affordable prices. Many small companies, magazines and blogs have never had the budgets to use images. Now everyone can afford great images, both the private consumers and large companies.
