    Images

    Hm, I've always wondered about this. You know how many business sites have headings with images of a city, a person, a computer, or whatever? Do the businesses actually take these pictures themselves or get it from some third party image provider or something of the sort?

    Yeah

    Depends how big the company is, and whether they have enough time/money to get their own pics.

    Hello Kokuyoen,

    Interesting question. I suppose the only way to really know would to conduct a little poll. Maybe pick out twenty or so and write them all an e-mail asking where they got their pictures. I'm guessing you'll probably get a smattering of both. It's tough to get a really nice photo with good-looking people in just the right lighting without a professional photographer. But, I've seen a few sites that have used only photos from their own offices, and for some reason that always makes me feel a little closer to therm. It has a perceptible effect on my trust. Those snazzy stock photos sure look nice, but a lot of times they feel pretty impersonal.
