  • 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.

    Getting that byline into a commercial piece can really suck...though I suppose you could contact the photog directly...

      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:

              Thank you. It's a good point that it's expected nowadays. I'll charge the tax on top of the flat rate and discuss it with the client when I send him the first invoice.

              If you live in a place that requires that you collect sales tax on graphic design services, it really doesn't matter how you bill your clients as long as the tax is collected and paid. If you want to...

              JCookeDesign
              I've always charged clients hourly and charge the Sales & Use Tax on top of that.

              Just picked up a new client and we worked out a flat rate (x amount per design regardless of time)....

              keming: thanks for the welcoming. I'm referring to all text in general, it looks like out of place. I don't know if I'm explaining myself correctly. It doesn't have that smooth feel to it, like it was...

              That could be a good thing for people in the industry that give a damn, just another reason for someone to pay a little more for quality.
