iStockphoto, which is the world’s most visited stock imagery and video site, has partnered with AMUSE Entertainment Group, to allow a selection of its stock photography to be used by mobile phone users.
A pilot phase is being launched in the UK and will allow mobile users to download wallpapers from a selection of 5,000 of iStockphoto’s images. All major networks will be able to access the site.
“People want their gadgets to feel uniquely theirs, including their mobile phones,” said Garth Johnson, vice president of business development at iStockphoto. “Amuse and iStock have now opened a new range of personalisation possibilities with iStock’s diverse, global image collection.”
The pilot scheme launches this month, with plans to roll out to the US and Canada, and greater access to iStockphoto’s 1.5 million images.
