Well, what do you think? Is stock photography a no-no in the digital world? I am unsure!!!! I don’t have small children in my home, so childhood kits are purchased and relegated to linger in my hard drive forever….. But I do have tons of photos of nature and my cat, Sunshine. Family and friends are egar to provide me with pictures of their children but sometimes you just need that one perfect photo to make a layout pop!!!!
So what’s a scrapper to do?
I decided to take a few minutes to google stock photography. And came back with nearly 41,000,000 sites. Ok… I am not gonna go look at all of them but I did look at the major sites that were one the top.
Huge selection of photography available! But WOW is it expensive to buy stock photos. Subscriptions begin at $979.00 for 3 months with daily downloads at 30. You can buy individual credits minimum of 12 for $18.00 . But most photos would require 6 credits to get a decent photo…..expensive but has the stock for every occasion.
Not as many photos as the above site, but the site is very user friendly and easy. Subscriptions begin at $249 per month with 25 downloads per day. Individual credits begin at 12 downloads for $49. Not much else to say about this one except easy to use.
Has one million photos and by far the cheapest stock company I have found. Very good quality of photos!!!! And 300dpi photos are still only one credit WOW!!!! There are even a few free photos available. Subscriptions begin at $35.95 for one week with 10 downloads per day or one month at $99.95. Individual credits start at $18.00 for 9 photos. Sooo Best Value and easy to use by far my favorite.
I hope that you have learned something about what is avialable in the stock photo world. But as far as the decision to use or not to use????? That remains to be seen!!!!!
