In February 2001, the ancestor of the current FreeImages platform, Stock.xchng, was founded. It was a website designed for users to share and download high-resolution photos, all free of charge. This concept encouraged contributors to showcase their work, boosting their careers. Stock.xchng served as a hybrid of a picture library and a social networking site. Registered users could create profiles, upload photos, write blogs, and engage in forums for discussions and critiques. By 2009, Stock.xchng had over 2.5 million registered users -with one million from the USA- hosting 400,000+ photos. In 2014, Stock.xchng was rebranded as FreeImages. Fast forward to 2021, FreeImages underwent significant enhancements, expanding content. In 2022, following a merger with six illustration websites, it added a diverse range of illustrations, including clipart, vectors, icons, and PSD files, enriching its offerings. Nowadays, FreeImages remains a platform where users freely share images, available in 15 languages, attracting millions of global visitors.
