According to the IStock web site, the price of ten credits –– the least that a customer can buy at one time –– will rise to $13. Currently, the division charges $12 for ten credits. The price of 600 credits will be $600 after Aug. 19. Until that date, customers can purchase 625 credits for the same $600.
The number of credits needed to purchase a still image will apparently remain the same after Aug. 19, but some vector illustrations and video clips will require more credits, the division said.
The purchase of a single still image will continue to require one to 15 credits, depending on the digital file size. Vector illustrations will require the expenditure of one to 25 credits after the change. Currently, no separate category exists for vector art.
