Stock photo libraries first found their footing in the 1920s, due in large part to the proliferation of images in popular magazines and other printed media. But stock photography as we know it took off in the 21st century, as brands and publishers moved online. According to estimates, the stock photo and video market will generate more than $4 billion by 2023.
Last year, more than two-thirds of marketers said they planned to use more images and visuals going forward. They also noted that images were the most valuable type of content in their toolbox, beating out both text and video.
