Designers Get Cash Back Every Time They Buy a Winter-Themed Stock Image

Categories Reviews

The winter holidays are coming. For designers, advertisers, bloggers and publishers, the upcoming season heralds a great opportunity: by publishing season-specific images in your projects, you can draw in new clients, because this type of images carries a familiar echo in the minds of the general public. When you embark on a search for relevant royalty-free photos and illustrations, you normally have to jump from one microstock agency to another and spend ages trying to find what you need.


Lootback helps you track down that perfect image in a split second, and then pays you back when you acquire it. What’s the catch, you may rightfully wonder? Basically, this service plays the role of intermediary between you, the buyer, and the most commendable stock photo agencies of the moment (Envato’s Graphicriver, Themeforest, Videohive, as well as Shutterstock, Thinkstock, iStock, and Deposit Photos). In exchange for bringing them business, Lootback receives a certain commission that is afterwards shared with you.

For instance, let’s assume you type in the keyword ‘Winter’ in the search box. Next, you’ll be presented with snowy-white and holiday-specific themes, videos, illustrations and photos pertaining to all the partner sites. On the leftmost side of the screen, you can find filters that help you single out which stock agencies to receive results from, as well as set the file types that you wish to see.


When you find something you like, click on it. A new window pops up, asking you to fill in your credentials and set up a Lootback account – do it now; it’s completely free and takes little over a minute. Then, you are redirected to the stock agency where your desired image lies. Now, you are to buy it as usual, but it’s important that you take the route of prepaid credits, so don’t go to the length of making a subscription.


In less than 12 hours of when you made the purchase, log in to your Lootback dashboard and you will find that the transaction has been registered in ‘Purchase History’, and that you’ve been sent money in your ‘Cash Back Earnings’. The more items you buy, the better: more cash flows in your coffers. You may cash it out with PayPal, but only after the stock agencies have come to process your request (which can take 7 to 90 days). However, rest assured, the money reaches you sooner or later.

I’ve shown you just how easy it is to find pixel-perfect illustrations and photos for the holidays. Treat yourself to real earnings as you go about doing the job that you love. Go on, check out Lootback.
