  • Where Can I Find Stock Photos of People, Animals, Etc., In Endless Positions?

    I would like to find an online source of people (parcticularly women), and animals (particularly jaguars) in every position imaginable. Does anyone know of such a place?
    ​Or is there software that aids an artist in creating these characters in limitless poses? Thanks.

    No idea what the learning curve is:

    or https://www.google.com/search?q=jagu...w=1614&bih=828

    I'd post one for women, but your search parameter leads me to suspect you might get some fairly NSFW imagery that way.

      So, here's the question, are you looking for images like that of people, animals, etc. for reference (if so, what PD posted would work pretty well.) Or, do you need it for some sort of final product where you would need to license the photography. Something like this (I searched for multiple exposure or motion exposure) http://www.gettyimages.com/license/114936123

      Or in some cases, like this Tihnkstock example, if you search for something and then click "more form this photographer" you can find the same person in multiple poses sometimes: http://www.thinkstockphotos.com/sear...a.collectionRF

      Or ... lastly ... you could hire a photographer to take multiple shots of the same people, animals, etc.

      Once again, it's hard to say exactly what you need. Perhaps you can clarify.

        Yeah, for my illustration work I tend to ask friends and family to stand a particular way if I'm trying to sort out the foreshortening, then just snap with iPhone. They're used to it. I also have a very extensive old-school paper morgue and some books that show models in various poses.
        Animals, you just have to find the right reference photo. Once you understand anatomy and foreshortening, you can usually do without the reference.
        The Atlas of Foreshortening is a good book series.
        Also Visualizing Muscles.

        But if this is for composition art where you need a license, that is totally different.

            Hi I am Graphic Designer Chris. I recommend paying for an account on I-stock photos. I stock photos is a great site for creative commons photos.

              I don't think so, unless something's changed that I'm unaware of.

                If you have a subscription to iStock, it's sorta feels like downloading images from the intertoobs. But sure as heck is not Creative Commons. Read the EULA for your subscription and the image involved. While I believe the subscriptions mostly are ''Royalty free,'' they are not license free. There's a whole slew of things you can't do with them. Plus, iStock, as part of Getty, has access to an awful lot of ''Rights Managed'' images that are definitely not Creative Commons.

                Speaking of Creative Commons...there are varied levels of CC that an artist can apply to their art under that copyright. Be darn sure you look up which one the artist has used. Some require attribution. Some require your work also be Creative Commons licensed (not cool in many clients' eyes.) Some art/images you can only use for personal use, but definitely no commercial use. Others you can use for commercial use if you contact the artist. Others you can use for personal or commercial use with attribution. Not all CC is created equal.

                  And what about commercial usage?

                    Dericklineker, any stock site where you get a subscription account will have a link to their license. Most have two levels of licensing (low volume and high volume usage)
                    There are some commercial things you can do with a Extended license that you cannot do with a Standard license.
                    For instance, here is the link to iStock's differences between Standard and Extended:
                    https://www.istockphoto.com/help/licenses
                    And their full legal licensing verbiage. Read it all. It is in plain English even though the type is small and the document is long.
                    https://www.istockphoto.com/legal/license-agreement
                    Read in particular the section on Restricted Uses. All of those things you may not do with an image you have downloaded under a subscription account. A lot of people download vector stock thinking they can use it in logos. That would be a no-go.

                    You can check about Pexels online or shutterstock with many stock photos of animals, people and others.
