March 30, 2007, Newsletter Issue #6: Good Royalty Free Photos May Get Used More Often

Tip of the Week

While royalty free stock photography sounds like a great deal, there are drawbacks, like anything. When choosing stock photography for a presentation or graphic design project, most people want a fresh image that will not appear elsewhere. This helps get a specific message across and build a company's brand image. However, since royalty free stock photography is readily and easily available and less expensive than traditional stock photography, it may be more likely that someone else will use the same image you do. Therefore, the uniqueness of your message may be diluted.
