YAY Images Customer Review

Review Updated: 2017

YAY Images is an interesting little stock agency that has some fairly unique options for buyers. Around since 2008, it has built a loyal contributor base including the best in the business. It underwent a name change from YAY Micro, and shifted its entire focus to unlimited web based streaming subscriptions. YAY is a European focused agency with some good buying options.

Their image base has grown well into the millions which is by no means massive, but enough to find what you need without getting overwhelmed. Pricing is simple and easy to follow, as long as you understand the streaming vs download options.

For some buyers the streaming option is brilliant. You edit the file right there on the site. Change the size, add a filter etc. Then simply embed the code into your website and you’re set. Much easier than downloading, opening an image editor and doing it all yourself. Of course this won’t be for everyone, buy YAY Images is betting it will work for a lot.
