  • 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.

          Not really, with music I can easily let my mind flow. Though without music, I´m aware of everything around me. Thus, without music it´s more distracting. Sometimes I can even focus with heavy metal, or...

          As facing pages. Don't do the imposition.
          Or better, call the shop that will be printing it or check online to see if they have a template giving you fold location, bleeds and safeties..

          Hey everyone
