Best source for graphics?

by TheGMa
17 replies
I know I'll have to pay for graphics, especially if I want to look unique, but the choice of suppliers is more diverse than when it was iStock or nothing.

Since prices have also gone through the roof (used to be $10/shot), I am looking for experienced advice before clicking the 'join' button.

Thanks,

Annie

      Thank you Johnben. I did click over there to look.

      I'm seeking advice on stock photo suppliers, not individual artists at this point. That will come later and WF has some excellent people for when the time comes.

            Hi guys and HUGS @ Anaiis & Jason (Regional Warrior)

            Image Morgue? Really? Love the name.

            Thank you very much. I'm heading over to Envato, DepositPhotos, and ImageMorgue right now.

            - Annie

            Whoa! Am over at Morguefile.com (ImageMorgue) right now. It is SO cool.

              Annie,

              I have accounts at DepositPhotos, iStockPhoto, 123rf, Fotolia, Dreamstime, and Pixabay (free) and several others. I go to all of them (bookmarked to make that easy), find the photo or illustration that I want, and buy it (usually for around $1 for the small size that fits into a blog nicely).

              Also, don't forget about free public domain images. They (PD) really are a treasure trove of fantastic value once you spend a little time to understand where to find them.

              The best to you,

              Steve

                I'll use public domain and there are also the free creative commons images from Flickr. If you're open to posting a credit - why not? I can usually find what I'm looking to capture and providing a little footnote isn't an issue on most of the blogs I manage.

    OK here is my advice, there was a software called yugen, I may be pronouncing it wrong, they were running a promotional offer on warrior forum itself, that is a great software, if you want to get rid of photoshop, I have not used them but lot of my friends have used them and have heard high praises , I think it's for 97 bucks, if you cannot afford that, head away to fiverr and if you don't wanna do that even, you will have to do it yourself, simple as that
    Good night
    May god bless you

      @ acumen - Thank you! I'd forgotten all about The Dollar Photo Club.

      @Xenseo - Thank you, too. Yes, vector is important in order to be seen properly on screens of all sizes.

      @chyan - Hi chy, thanks for the post. I've done DIY for years, but that takes time, which I do not have. Am putting together a new blog + fan page and between writing and optimizing, there's time for little else.

      A few minutes later: Dang! The Dollar Photo Club is closed to new members; one must join Adobe Stock. You're lucky to already be a member, though I'm sure you will be pushed to Adobe Stock eventually.

      Xenseo, thank you. Excellent sales page, btw. I bookmarked it.

      Today I need stock photos and hadn't considered using character vectors. None of your stock characters fit my profile, but I'm sure you do custom work.

      I'll be in touch.

    The Warrior Forum has great designers in my opinion. They use the term "hire a warrior" here.

    You request a service and someone will contact you.

      Thank you, Steve, perfect as always. Am clicking to check out all suggestions in the thread, but Steve, you gave me a new search term. I've always search free stock images, never tried free public domain images - that may yield additional results. Cool.

      @FerdinandoF - Oh yes, we have excellent services here in the forum and if you know what you're doing, there are good ones over at 5rr, too.

      But sometimes you need an image on the fly, or you're not sure what you need and must browse to find the right vision and grab it when it captures your eye, especially when you are setting up auto posts for your blog. Trust me, a lot of mind-changing occurs.

      You can't line up a month's worth of posts and kick back; things change, trends good and bad appear out of the blue that must be addressed right away; brainstorms hit, compelling you to light up the keyboard and get that report posted 2 hours ago; and so it goes.

    You can search Google for “free stock images” or “free stock graphics” and a lot of sites will pop up for you to explore.

    You can also go to sites like iStock to can buy images. Comparatively, sites like Creative Market supply fewer images, but they are in general very nice and artistic, as well as large and inexpensive. Sometimes you will be able to find what you need at Free Images.

    It is better to hire a freelancer from any freelancing market place. I am sure it is more convenient way to get what exactly you want. Thanks.
