    While I CAN read it, it's not the easiest thing to read. I'm young-ish and have 20/20 vision with my contacts. A lot of people with less than perfect vision are going to struggle with this.

    It took me a few seconds of looking before I saw the SB in the logo. Instead, I focused right in on the white shape, which, to me, looks sort of like the ghost of Mickey Mouse or, maybe, the torso of...

    Location can make a huge difference, where are you located?

    Are you okay with off-shoring?

    Was it Macy's that had some note crazy about the horrible working conditions tucked...

    A friend of mine swears by HTC, they were still more expensive than google's (LG's) Nexus5 which has similar specs. If you go the nexus route I suggest that you buy directly from the googe, in Canada...

    there are some good stock photo sites referenced in the resources section... there's a little tab near the top of the page.

    I like www.sxc.hu and www.morguefile.com myself!

      thanks!

      yeah, i saw the resource list. i know about plenty of stock photo sites and the like. i am more curious about subscription service sites (where you pay an annual "membership" fee and have access to their catalog).

        I come across ads for lots of these in MacDesign magazine, but haven't actually tried any of them yet... I guess I'm still a little too small scale for that yet! [img]/DesktopModules/dotNetBB/emoticons/icon_redface.gif[/img]


        Welcome to the forum! I'm sure someone with some more experience in this area will be along soon!

          I use PhotoSpin (in fact, that's where the beer bottles from the 'You get what you pay for' thread in the Soapbox forum came from). I think it's about $150-250 a year (I don't pay it). They came highly recommended from other print shops, but I think they're 'okay,' it really depends on what you're trying to look for. Sometimes I can't find something I have in mind.

            Photos.com is pretty darn good for the money. give it a one month try though before you spend for a longer subscription. I always find workable stock photos there.

              You cant go past Interactimages.com. I have used them for the last 6 months. They give an annual subscription rate of $19.99 and you get about 40,000 pics all high res. (20in @ 300dpi).

              They are upgrading their server and it looks like they will offer a sh*t load more images soon.


              sxc.hu is good, but their photos are all smaller than 2MB....too small for most of my print work.

                shutterstock is pretty good, I havent tried buying them but i do submit photos to the site. you can download 750 per month, which works out at aroun $0.18 an image. Although, if you dont download large amounts it would be a lot cheaper to use dreamstime, istock etc.
