BrightQube Updates Photo Searching Site

San Diego-based BrightQube, an angel-backed stock photo search site, has updated its web services to make it easier for photo buyers to find images. BrightQube rolled out its new web site earlier this week, adding such features as pop-up search tips, new navigation options, filtering, and other features. BrightQube has developed a radically different user interface specifically aimed at filtering through both microstock and professional stock photography, making it easier for graphics designers and other who use stock photography to find particular images visually. According to BrightQube, the changes are intended to help simplify the process of buying stock photographs--photos which are licensed by photography providers for use in publications, marketing, web sites, and other uses. BrightQube said it now has a library of more than three million royalty-free images. The firm is angel backed by the Tech Coast Angels and the Pasadena Angels.
