BREAKING NEWS — Unbelievable! We have just reached the 400,000 image mark on SXC! Thank you very much to all the people who keep sharing their fantastic pictures to feed the image hungry crowds! The contribution you are making to the online community is invaluable. You are helping out thousands of small businesses and individuals who have to work on a tiny budget.

The uploader of the 400,000th image, a picture of a construction site is Michal Zacharzewski, a.k.a. mzacha from Poland. Michal has been with us since 2004, he shoots with an Olympus C740UZ camera and has uploaded over 1800 pics in the last 5 years. Having many great isolated series in his gallery such as this, this or this earned him the prestigious 9th place on the list of the most downloaded contributors of all time.

For being the lucky owner of the 400,000th image on the site, we would like to award Michal with a $400 gift certificate. Congratulations!

To mark this occasion, we have also introduced a special deal for all SXC users on our sister site, Get 100 credits for just $59.99 and download up to 100 high quality images from our vast collection of nearly 4 million files! Hurry up while the offer lasts!

yeah yeah, no problem i'll keep uploading :p. Btw, the offer seems not to work on stockexpert?

"Get 100 credits for just $59.99 and download up to 100 high quality images from "

It's still 79,99..... ?

Oops, my fault. When I click submit, I see the special offer price, nice :). Let's get some credits. SXC is free and hight quality, but the xpert has more 'clean' pictures.

So up to the 1 million. Great site, great pictures. Keep up the good work.

400k images - was that the sell out point?

39. posted by kyutums, Jul 29, 2009 9:35 PM

I have been using SXC images in my presentations for so many years (I forgot when I found about SXC, but I started using it the minute I saw it).

Congratulations! :)

There are now fewer that 400K images on the site; perhaps this post should be deleted...?

I love this website, could not live without it. I do think you are doing a great job but maybe its time to sell a little adverting space so you can spend more money on your servers. I don’t like advertising but if it does not get in my way I don’t mind and you will be able to fund servers upgrades.
