  • 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:

              I understand that when you're new to this, it feels like you must take whatever work you can get, and swallow all the crap that comes with it. But it's actually just the opposite. This is a toxic relationship....

              Also just to address your OP more specifically, Twitter vs a forum.

              On twitter I can message someone I know and ask for a crit or fresh set of eyes. On a forum I can post that same message,...

              It's another social media app that allows you to connect with people, in some ways it's easier than others. Its one more way to market yourself, and people have gotten plenty of work off twitter alone....
