what is a good site to buy collections of stock photos ? I would be interested to know from designers who have themselves purchased online . please give some recommendations .
I am obstructing justice.
http://www.istockphoto.com/ is an open community where you can get photos for cheap, but there aren't that many great ones. It's good for those who don't have big budgets.
http://www.comstock.com/ is a more professional one.... good selection, i find. More expensive though.
thanx.... will check both out
www.istockphoto.com is the GREATEST stock website on the web (all around great, great selection, prices, features, layout, etc.)
the pics are definitely great , in quality .... but if someone tries to upload somethng - a 6 MB upload is a bit too much no ?

I like istock and
TastyStock, among a few others. I've found the above two to be the least expensive though .
My favorite one (free though) is
Stock Exchange ... really great photos there (pretty hi-res, also)...
Hey, that one's pretty good! I'll have to browse some more

thanx guys , now i will look over all the sites ..., but I was wondering wether any of you bough anythng like CD's from any of these sites ? do they sell and ship international ? I may not want to waste lots of time , if it can be avoided .
I've bought both collections on CD and individual images from EyeWire and Photoshop in the past - both of these collections have now become part of
Getty Images. They're not cheap, but the quality and choice of images (even Royalty Free) is often in a different league to the free/cheap options.
oh yes, and they serve international customers.
just remembered these too.. i've used
Stockbyte before too.. they also do CD collections and international orders.
