With their global reputation, Depositphotos has already known as one of the microstock site selling various kinds of images and videos. If we look up in the image category, we can see it is divided into several categories, such as photo, vector, illustration, and so forth. Discussing common images like those mentioned before may be a bit too usual. So, let us dig a bit more into this site’s library and see what they have got.
From all the categories, there is one that will be discussed in this article. That “lucky” category is vintage images. Yes, this style of image is quite popular, but not often discussed. In this website, vintage image is put in the same category with retro; the category link read “Vintage & Retro.” However, vintage is actually a bit different with retro, even though both represent old style image within an era or period in the past. Retro derives from Latin word means “backward.” Retro image is more identical with French art and fashion. This art is more like the art during 1950′s until 1980′s. Meanwhile, vintage images represent the era when the great wine was begun to be stored in their wooden casks which is between 1900′s until 1940′s. Many people think that things that had already past are all vintage and retro. That is not the case, actually.
