StockXpert Closing Its Doors

By Char

StockXpert, one of my favorite resources for inexpensive yet high quality graphics for just about any design need you might have, is closing its doors this week. You can no longer purchase credits and any unused credits you may have need to be spent or transferred to iStockPhoto this week. According to the email – all StockXpert credits will be transferred on February 11. If you miss that date, you will still be able to transfer your credits anytime over the next 6 months, until August 11, 2010.

I am really sorry to see this great resource go.

I feel your pain! StockXpert was always my first stop for graphics. I have used iStockphoto as well but am definitely going to miss StockXpert.


I must say that I love istock photo. they have a great group of contributers and make clip-art pale in comparrison. Too bad about stockXpert…. but at least you get to transfer your credits!


yeah, StockXpert was definitely the best. unluckily, the global crisis has affected them.


I used to use iStockPhoto quite a bit, then I found Graphic River.

GR doesn’t have a massive amount to choose from yet, but what it does have is really good quality
