Dougal Campbell's geek ramblings

WordPress, web development, and world domination.

iStockPhoto Relaunch

We web designers are always on the lookout for sources of images to use in the sites we create. Most image sources are either low-quality, or very expensive. One great exception is iStockPhoto, which offers royalty-free images uploaded by its own members, many of whom are professional photographers or designers.

To support the site, they are now charging $0.25 per download, $0.05 of which goes back to the original artist. I’m hoping that this will be a very sucessful model for them. Especially since I’ve been meaning to upload some of my own photos for a while now.

    hey there : )

    iStockPhoto is simply wonderful. So beautiful images, from all corners of the world – at so little expense. What impresses me is the price of the print resolutions. Imagine the cost of hiring models, photographers and setups to take one for yourself -)

    t/c !

  2. I’m a fan of iStockPhoto and use image from their quite often. The images are of good quality and are reasonably priced too. The site’s a doddle to use too.
