Image Search

Goodstock’s search engine is a schema search, working with predefined search terms. We believe that this holds several benefits to our customers.

When used with only 1 or 2 of the Main Search Criteria, you will receive a very broad search result as inspiration. With Additional Search Criteria the result will ever narrow down, the counter on the lower left indicates, how many image sets fit your criteria.

Goodstock’s search engine is a schema search, working with predefined search terms. We believe that this holds several benefits to our customers.

Rule of thumb: As more criteria are added to a search, the lower the number of image sets found.

Briefed Image Search

We will then put together a selection of our imagery including images that we have freshly received. And, if time permits, we will also contact our pool of experienced photographers, to see whether they have something up their sleeve.

FPO View and FPO Web

In our backplate section above the search result, you will find two buttons: FPO View On/Off and Download FPO.

FPO – For Position Only – is Goodstock’s custom positioning software. Each backplate at Goodstock includes an image idea (pre-positioned, low resolution model) by the photographer. We are the only CGI image databank that immediately offers a view of a low-resolution layout for the final image.

FPOView ON/OFF toggles between the plain backplate and the image, as the photographer imagined it. Check it out and be inspired, but even better yet:

Download FPO, more precisely the Web version, which is free and can be used with lightboxes assembled at Goodstock and create your image ideas in our imagery. FPO Web is Mac only software and can be only be used with downloaded FPO lightboxes from Goodstock.

Licensing Images

Goodstock licenses images to customers for their marketing and advertising. For this purpose we individually price each image according to the specific needs of the customer. Therefore it is vital for us to receive very specific information, the following are the most important criteria:

- Target Market

- Media Use

- Territory

- Duration

- Industry

- Circulation

- Image Size

With this information, we are able to quote any given image, or you just do it yourself.

If you are interested in the image history, we will certainly provide it.

Location and Model Fees

Location and model fees may accrue according to the image subject. This will be indicated in the set view or gallery view of any given image. According to our General Terms and Conditions it is your duty to clear these images prior to use.

Model fees, where applicable, will be included immediately, because our policy with our photographers state, that these have to be negotiated prior to going online at Goodstock.

Location Fees are often set after the proprietor of the object has final information about what will be shown in the final image. Here, you have 2 options:

1. We deliver contact information for the object in the image to you and you negotiate the location fee yourself.

2. You leave it all to Goodstock for a small fee. Part of the Goodstock network are production companies that already assisted our photographers at the time of the shooting and in many cases have already worked out deals with the proprietors.

We just feel you ought to know: In the vast majority of cases, we will already have a location fee ready for you, because of prior negotiations with proprietors.

Pricing and Order Placement

This is an overview of how our pricing works:

In the backplate section, our images fall into 3 price categories, which represent a base price according to artistic value: Bronze, Silver and Gold. These base prices are afterwards multiplied by the factors governed by your selected license criteria. As a result, it certainly pays off to be very detailed in selecting licensing criteria.

When you have found the right combination of licenses, simply Add to Cart. In the cart you can store all your options, review your licenses and decide. To receive an official quote simply press Get Quote.
