In a photo catalog, search is everything. Bigstock includes the ability to do live image searches, retrieve such image details as the title, description and side, and request a cross section of data such as images within a certain category.

The API is available in REST and JavaScript and returns data in JSON and XML so that JavaScript can interact with the API. It includes a production and testing environment.
