Photodune Search

A photography marketplace allows users to buy and sell royalty-free photographs.


01 — Overview

Photodune was launched in 2011 and has been a staple part of the Envato marketplaces, this photography marketplace allows users to buy and sell royalty-free photographs and images starting at just one dollar. A popular marketplace for many photographers, small to medium businesses, agencies, and hobbyists the goal of the project was to aid potential photo buyers in finding their perfect imagery for their projects.

02 — Process

While working with the Envato product and design teams, I was tasked and adding updates for responsive design to reflect modern device sizing, with the hope of improving conversion while adhering to recent branding updates. Many sections of the previous Photodune site were not mobile-friendly which made filtering and searching for photos to purchase quite laborious and did not cater to the need of the modern buyer.

03 — Outcomes

The new version of Photodune included many improvements such as increased thumbnail image sizing, a large preview slideshow, improved searching and filtering, responsive design, and user interface updates that adhered to a new Envato Design system and improved navigation. The project is still currently ongoing and this was the first part of a massive upgrade to the Envato marketplaces as a whole. The various improvements have helped many buyers and contributors discover photos and collect digital imagery for their various needs and projects.
