Toon Boom, iStockphoto Team Up

Software makers Toon Boom Animation Inc. have teamed up with iStockphoto, the world’s largest royalty-free stock image service, to offer its users access to free images and a discount on credits.

The deal will allow Toon Boom users to use iStockphoto to import digital images and vector illustrations directely into Storyboard Pro without drawing. It also allows users to quickly import iStock images into Toon Boom Studio, Animate and Digital Pro. Images can be use for backgrounds, sets, props, characters and poses, and stored for reuse later on.

“Partnering with iStock testifies to Toon Boom’s dedication to further facilitate the creative process of our users, as well as widen the horizon of possibilities if they want to combine different techniques,” said Joan Vogelesang, President and Chief Executive Officer at Toon Boom.
