March 14, 2008, Newsletter Issue #55: Read Everything You Can Before You Buy

Tip of the Week

The advent of royalty free stock photography has made buying quality photographic images easy and fast. It has also freed the buyer from worry over usage rights that often come with traditional photo purchases. But, just because this new form of purchasing stock photos seems easy and cheap does not mean you should skip reading and following any and all guidelines published by the stock companies. You may still be responsible for adhering to certain parameters and licensing rules. Before you buy any royalty free stock photo, make sure you have researched the sale thoroughly and understand these rules. If something seems unclear, that is usually a sign that the company you are dealing may not be the best choice out there.
