May 9, 2008, Newsletter Issue #63: Skilled Researchers May Find Stock Photos Faster

Tip of the Week

One of the best advantages of using stock photography websites is that literally millions of images are at one's fingertips. Therefore, it must be easy to find just the right image, correct? Not always. Because each site may catalogue and index its photos differently, you may enter one word, such as "sun" and get a picture of someone who is sunburned! If you are a small business owner looking for stock photos to enhance your marketing materials, you might spend all day discovering the individual quirks of a variety of stock photo websites. Therefore, it might be worth your while to hire a stock photography agency who has extensive knowledge of the reputable sites out there and how best to quickly sort through the myriad of photos now available for sale online. This will cost more money up front, but will save you countless hours of your valuable time. Graphic design firms are also quite skilled at finding stock photos fast since they work with them on a daily basis.
