When developing a website, it’s always very handy to have stock photography to work with. Problem is, the starting costs at big-name stock photography sites can be $20-$50. If you’re searching for that perfect image for an ad campaign, it’s worth every penny. If you’re looking for some filler images for your website, that can get quite expensive quickly.
Here’s where “Microstock Photography” comes to the rescue. Listed are some less expensive stock photography sites that we’ve come across. We’ll catalog them as we use them. At the bottom of the list are sites we’ve stumbled across but haven’t actually used yet.
Let us know if you’ve got a favorite cheap or free stock photography site.
In this day and age, there’s no reason for your web development firm or your marketing agency to purchase images that cost hundreds of dollars.
