Does anyone have recommendations on where to purchase stock photography at a descent price? We have used Dollar Photo for years, and they recently went out of business or were bought out. We want an easy way to purchase stock photography without all the restrictions. Thanks in advance!
We use Thinkstock a lot. Another company that I really like their stuff (but haven't used it yet) is Twenty20. Their sales staff is pretty aggressive to get you to sign up, but they do have nice stuff and seems pretty reasonable. And Getty doesn't own them yet.
We've worked with them for approx. 2.5 years. Very affordable. They offer a yearly package or you can select per image. Many of their photos are also seen on more expensive sources. Variety is pretty good, but if you are searching for an industry-specific, your results may be limited.
Unsplash is a new source I found for free, high resolution stock photos with no limitations on usage. It's not a very searchable website yet, but the photos that are available are pretty good.
Member 6128 ... Dollar Photo Club has not gone out of business. They were actually purchased by Adobe and is now part of the Adobe Creative Cloud. You should have received a special promo that allows you to get 10 photos per month for $10 through Adobe. Adobe also owns Fotolia.
There are so many stock photography resources out there. However, there has been a lot of consolidation.
iStockPhoto / Thinkstock ... Getty Images owns most of the stock libraries.
