iStockphoto Tip: The advent of both the Internet and digital technology has drastically changed the worlds of photography and graphic design. One new wave is the development of royalty free photos. In the past, those buying stock photography had to deal with paying substantially more money to obtain a photo for use in a graphic design piece or other presentation because photographers owned the rights to the photos and special licensing agreements had to be reached. Now, companies, like istockphoto.com, have created a faster, cheaper way to buy stock photos. Online images may cost as low as a $1 and buyers can use them multiple times for various uses. Previously, each use of a photo would cost the buyer more money.
