  • When customer is on half a shoe string

    I found this resource

    There are plenty of limitations : their business is based on small pics for free, larger images for a fee, accreditation is required (obviously)

    http://www.freedigitalphotos.net/

    But if you have no choice but go for free images for a website, I found some of the pictures reasonably nice.

      When you start getting into the photos that are large enough to use in print work, the price isn't much different from other stock photo sites.

        Totally, this is only free for some website uses, but at on larger stock sites you don't even get that small size image, so its interesting although I admit there is very little choice

          That site is very misleading. Basically, the "free" image is just a thumbnail to what the pricier and more desirable images look like. I've seen other image sites that offer thumbnails, but don't try to disguise the practice as giving away free images.

            I think that's why Sneferu added this to his post:

              Not quite sure what to tell you.
              The profession of graphic design is not learned by watching tricks on Youtube or learning the software buttons. There is quite a bit of theory that goes into a good...

              Boston is only a Webpass city anyway, and only for condos and apartment buildings.
              Looks like they still plan to expand into a (very) few new cities:

              Yeah, I'm not sure how this one got through. I've changed the URL to something else.
