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.

Another suggestion to add:  INGIMAGE.com

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.

Stocksy has some really nice images. You pay a different price based on file size, the largest file being $100. But they also have the ability to add on extended rights, al a carte.

Thanks for the recommendations everyone, we are looking at all of them to see what fits our needs.  Haven't heard of a lot of them, so this is great info!

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. https://unsplash.com/

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.

A few free options that we use: pexels.com and pixabay.com

Pixabay, Unsplash and Pexels are all incredibly helpful, particularly when needing some additional imagery for client social content. And the price is right.
