  • 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:

              If your logo is what you have shown in the subway poster, the reason I ask how your logo is illuminated is because those skinny letter strokes and serifs at the size you have indicated on your wall (in...
