  • 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:

              out of curiosity, what do you find weird about their output formats? What is an example of something that you find wrong with the software? Just curious as I'm considering checking it out.

              Your link does not work.

              I wouldn't hire you if you've never used InDesign.

              Some things are wrong with affinity software, but some things are better conceived than Illustrator and Photoshop. They are working on a Indesign alternative. Their Photoshop and Illustrator alternatives...
