    Comment on Hello
    I'll echo what Cosmo said. There are a lot of good designers out there but their production skills are atrocious. No bleeds being the biggest right next to really uh...novel... use of color palettes....

    How frustrating! I know of a cabinetmaker/wood-worker not too far from me. I think I might just have him make me something. I am just sick of seeing my art supplies all over the place.

    Of course now I've made more work for you since they still will probably post stuff wherever and make you guys move their posts....

  • Ablestock or Photos

    Am going to subscribe to either or but I can't decide. Seems like they're pretty close in image sizes and quality but would like others opinions.

    Too $$ for me.


    lotsa crap, but lotsa good stuff too.

    I like being able to get photos whenever I need them.

      Both sites are equal in regards to providing high-quality professional imagery. The question you need to ask yourself is what size images you’ll need.

      A subscription provides you with 170,000+ images that come in 3 different sizes (up to 16MB). You’ll find that they’re plenty big enough for all Web and most print projects. So, unless you need really big images, this would be the way to go. Plus, if you do occasionally find that you need even bigger images, provides the additional feature of a super-resolution pay-per-download option.

      An subscription offers you 100,000+ super-high resolution images. In other words, they have BIG images. So, if you have a lot of projects for which you need really big images then AbleStock is the way to go.

      Both sites offer free samples. I'd suggest downloading a sample or two from each site to see which is the best fit for your needs.

        Thanks for info LV.
