  • 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.

          Reply to Borders. Another stupid question

          I think if you shift/drag it bigger, it will make it a square. I would duplicate the rectangle and increase the size by a percentage, then align to the original.

          Borders. Another stupid question
          iyiyi
          I've been doing this the hard way for years and I'm just going to ask the stupid question.

          If I have a rectangle, and I want a border around it (not a stroke) that is perfectly aligned (same...

          ^That said, I'm not sure what you're accomplishing by rasterizing in prep for DTG. If your Illustrator content is vector based, it would be best left un-rasterized.

          Ugh. Illustrator's raster export is garbage.

          If you have the suite, and therefore Photoshop, set up a Photoshop canvas of the required size/resolution for your intended output, copy (Edit...
