How many images and videos are available at Kozzi?
60,000 63,000+ at last count, that includes photos, vectors, illustrations and videos. They also add new images regularly to their collection.
What is the difference between free and paid accounts?
The difference is in the use, with a free account you can download and use images and videos only for non-commercial purposes. That means you can use them for everything that isn't geared towards making you money, nor directly, nor indirectly. So, using images and videos for your personal blog, that doesn't carry any ads nor does make money, nor intends to make any money in any way, is fine. Using the same image for a Wizzley article requires having a paid account.
How much is the paid account?
Hold your breath! A paid account starts at $4.61/ month for unlimited downloads of photos, clip-art and videos, which is deadly cheap compared to other stock image sites - believe me! And you can use all files, images and videos alike, on your own commercial website or on a client's project! As I stated above, that is the cheapest subscription for royalty free stock images and videos that I know of.
Why is 'exclusive to Kozzi' important?
Basically it means that you will not find these images and videos elsewhere. And it also means that the images are less likely to be used by 'everybody'. Helps your sites and projects to stand from the crowd! Oh, and no, Google can't read what is shown in images, but Google can determine if the same pixel combination has been used on a zillion of other websites or not ... just saying.
What is the image quality like?
Have a look around this article, all the images here come directly from the Kozzi website without me having manipulated / enhanced them in any way. The only thing I did to them was to reduce their size! The images come in different sizes, from small for web to really large for big prints, downloading only the size you need can save you hard drive space and time. Or you can download the largest size available just in case you need it later - or simply download all sizes. As there are no download restrictions, it is completely up to you!
Are Kozzi images model released / property released / generally safe to use?
Yes, apart of those images that are clearly marked for 'editorial use only' each image that shows a person has also a note attached saying 'model release filed with Kozzi'. This means that the person pictured in the image or video is ok with his / her image being used in a commercial context.
Are there restrictions to the use of Kozzi images?
Only those of common sense ;-) Don't use the image of a person for anything that would show this person in a bad light and use editorial images only for editorial content.
