Pixmac is an online database of stock photos that can be used in print and web advertising and marketing. Pixmac includes both free pictures and high quality pictures for purchase. The Pixmac API allows developers to create their own application that allow users to search, view, and purchase/download Pixmac pictures outside of the Pixmac user interface. The API can be used via SSL for secure connections.
The Pixmac team boldly proclaims that they aim to be the "fastest, most usable and reliable microstock agency...in the image marketplace" on their about us page. The straightforward Pixmac API should increase the exposure for their stock image portfolio in service of that goal. Security is clearly important to PixMac since API requests can be sent over HTTP or HTTPs. Responses can be returned in either JSON or XML format based on preference. The API has four simple steps to follow for selling their stock images on your website or application.
