Where to buy images for dating campaigns?

28 replies
Hey guys.

What are some good places to buy pictures (preferably amateur-looking) for dating campaigns? A lot of the stock photo sites are pretty pricey and the free ones don't all have model release forms (meaning that the model didn't give their consent for you to use the image for free.. or something like that).

So basically yeah, where can I buy some cheap images or find quality free ones?

    Google would be my answer. You do not need to pay for anything.

      Somehow, I don't think that is legal. Try istockphoto

      What if you copyright infringe the picture of the original owner?

      I think they say CrazyCTR. Try it.

      MtmJohn, is there a place which is truly free, every photo I find on those sites, charges money. Its like ok here is some free bad ones, the good ones? Royalty free yes, but pay us 2 bucks each for the license, etc

    Although using Google images is frowned upon, I've run for own campaigns and helped others run enough campaigns to have over 10,000 images all from Google in a folder on my HDD. I have never heard of anyone getting in to trouble for this, with the exception of a guy using pictures of Obama's daughters in porn ads.

    He had his ads taken off the site, but that was about it. No legal trouble at all.

    You can use free stock photo sites. That would be 100% legal way to do it.

    However, what most marketers do when running dating offers on FB and other similar traffic sources is to scrap images from PoF or FB itself. Of course, this isn't "nice", but this is what many guys do to get amateur images that look more realistic.

      For male pics, try bodybuilding.com forums. Muscles work extremely well for POF.

    I eventually sucked it up and started buying mine. Way more quality when you buy them. But I used free ones for years and all of them I have bookmarked were mentioned here plus extras.

    Good luck!

      I have seen people say this before, my question is what makes you think an image showing up in google images is public domain? or free? or not copyrighted?

        They aren't! I wouldn't suggest you go the Google route. You honestly never know if a compliance person is hired by the website that is the copyrighted owner of that picture.

    People seem to be under the illusion that Google images is a magical free repository of public domain images

    It certainly is not set up for this purpose, nor is it anything other than a way to find images, the legality of those images, price of the images, etc, is up to you to determine
