I wanted to share an alternative, a paid but very affordable place where you can license high-def images for a song.
I have been using Deposit Photos for quite awhile and they are great. They currently have 50 Million images available - compare that with Pixabay, for example, which has less than 1 million images (760,000 according to their web site). Deposit Photos has illustrations, photos, vector images, and video for licensing.
I have no interest in the company, I'm not an affiliate, etc but I just wanted to share a great deal from what I believe is a great company.
They have a new subscription plan which is $29/month for 30 images (high def but they also have other varying sizes). If you opt in for their annual plan, it $299/year which ends up being $.83/image.
Do you need large, royalty-free, licensed images for your projects? These are less than $1 each.
Additional images are also just $1 each (if you go over your 30 limit) and I like the fact that unused downloads transfer month to month (other stock image places don't allow this).
Again, I have nothing to gain from this share - but I use images all the time and this is one of my "go to" favorite image sites. Their inventory and selection is awesome.
As always, read the license terms (which I think are actually quite generous) before specific image use.
The best to all of you,
