        Then you need to buy them.

        Period.

    What kind of images are you looking for? To get the best quality of course, you need to browse the various stock agencies. They spend a lot of time and money making sure images are as close to perfect as they can be before allowing them to go on sale. Some sites are better known for food photos while others may be heavily weighted towards artistic shots, vectors or drawings.

    Crowd sourced sites are popular because you can sometimes find great quality for free, but I'd question the value if it takes you many hours to find. The commercial legality of some of the images is also debatable.

      Any of these will give you lots of choices:

      Fotolia
      iStockPhoto
      Dreamstime
      123rf
      DepositPhotos
      Shutterstock

      (all are dot com, I believe)

      Good luck to you,

      Steve

  • The stock image sites are all good and you can get some great images but they can be expensive and even the cheap ones all add up.

    Can you not just take your own. I used to buy stock but now when Im out I take shots of random stuff.... Just with my phone. People in shops. shopping cntrs, My cup of coffee, trainer (sneaker) displays and when I use them I can apply slight blur, add text and really make them look like something else.

    I also take quick shots of adverts in street and shop windows to give me ideas for website colours/images etc.
