Announcement / Press release

posted by admin, Dec 17, 2009 3:07 AM — 3 comments

Dear Everyone,

I have an announcement to make.

As of this week, I am no longer with Stockxpert and SXC. After nearly 9 years we (the founders of HAAP) decided to quit the company and sell our remaining share to Getty Images.

Thank you very much for your dedication and support over the years. It was amazing to watch SXC grow from a simple hobby to a 3 million+ community that changed the life of many people including ours, but it's time to say good bye now.

Maybe we'll meet again in another project! :)

If you are interested in what we're up to, please sign up here:

You can also read the accompanying press release there.

I wish everyone a fantastic holiday!

Best regards,

This has been a great site for young designers! I saddened by the fact that the owners of this company will no longer be part of this initiative which grew into one of the most popular image sites.

I think that this site will eventually will be shot down. Because this free stock is quite a pain in the for the big stock-sellers.

I also noticed and heared that the pending images are taking ages, even worse then when the original owners was checking those new photo's
