    I was testing the Font Suitcase and seems to be screwing with my Chrome bowsers...after some googling--looks like its a known issue. FEX it is then.

    Thanks Garricks....

    I think a lot depends on what one's definition of a logo might be. Many beginners and amateurs tend to make logos that are really just small, complicated illustrations. Most professionals, on the other...

  • 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.
