  • Ablestock or Photos

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

    Too $$ for me.

    Try IstockPhoto.com

    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 Photos.com 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, Photos.com provides the additional feature of a super-resolution pay-per-download option.

      An AbleStock.com 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.

          I think it is good and has potential. My first impresion was that I didnt immediatly see what the word was in green because the type is too moved around and not too readable. I also agree there is too...

          Interesting. If all your work is at this level, I'd say it is good enough to get into design school. Did they give you reasons why you didn't make it?

          In terms of real world critique, if...

          Hi Wayne, when you say background design, are you meaning the white text on red pattern in the background?

          Not a bad start, and definitely a fair place where you can improve and grow.

          The illustrations are a good start, I'm sure if you worked on them some more, you could give them a bit more refining....
