Stock Photography for Your Facebook Timeline

Here’s an interesting, if not a little specific, idea that someone over at the stock photography website Dreamstime put into action earlier this year: a stock photography site dedicated entirely to Facebook timeline photos. Timeline Images is exactly what it sounds like it is, a collection of cheap stock photos optimized for your Facebook timeline.

It’s a great example of the “see a need, fill a need” philosophy. And even though it seems a little bit too niche to take off, getting a professional looking timeline photo for only a buck would probably appeal to quite a few people out there.

    If you pay money for low-res images, you might be an idiot. See your doctor.

    I had this idea when timeline came out. If even a few people pay $1 for a photo, you are in the money….but come folks, how impersonal is a purchased photo? 3/10 for a good idea, but wrong target.

    Useless idea because Facebook makes layout changes almost every year.

     Maybe that makes it a great idea. Returning customers.

    You guys are not seeing the full picture, these guys are going to sell an image for a buck, but they are going to do the same thing as getty images. They will crawl the facebook timelines and file copyright infringements on every user who didnt pay to use one od their images. Of course they wont tell you that, until your friends like your timeline pic so much they steal it or share it…. dont say I didnt tell you so!
