September 12, 2008, Newsletter Issue #81: Stock Photos Are Good Deals

Tip of the Week

If you are an avid blog writer or even a professional designer, you might be wondering why you shouldn't just use a snapshot when you have a need for a photo. After all, your family says you take great camera shots so why not save money and just use something you have at home?

For one reason, stock photography shots available online have been scrutinized by experts to determine if they have a high-quality composition and a dramatic impact to the viewer. A shot that has personal appeal to you may simply be boring to the rest of the world, including the audience you are trying to impress.

Additionally, with the advent of royalty free and low-cost stock photography websites, finding a professional camera shot is easy and cheap. Also, when you find such a shot, you can be assured the quality of the resolution will remain good when it's put into your publishing software.
