    Stock Photography Sites

    Hi there,

    We are going to be developing templates for sale, & finding a good stock photography site that doesn't charge an arm & a leg b/c we are selling the templates over & over again has posed a challenge.

    Normally I go with istock for everything, but they are too much, it's $150 or thereabouts per image.

    We found Big Stock & their prices are very reasonable, but all of the pictures of the women on there look like plastic dolls.

    Any other recommendations?

    We are looking for good images, large selection.

    Thanks

    how are you calculating $150 per image? We use istock quite a lot and the prices per image are a fraction of that.. I'm not sure why you would be using the extended license if that's what is driving your prize up

    From the standard license terms:
    on–line or electronic publications, including web pages to a maximum of 800 x 600 pixels
    That said -- When I've used creative agencies (in a prior life) that included stock photography as an element I was paying $750 per image, so even at $150 it's value for money.

    Umm, obviously you don't understand that when you sell a template you need that extended license.

    I hope now you are educated.

    We'll find cheaper & better, we always do.

    Thanks Shayne

    Actually my assistant found companies who have CDs for sale.

    Does anyone know about those types of companies that sell stock photography on CDs?

    This one was outside NA.

    Thanks

    Similar license terms apply to image discs. Depends on the collection, and the company distributing it, but generally speaking if you are looking at Royalty-Free discs, the terms would be similar to the RF terms found at istock and elsewhere. Just be sure to check the terms regarding template usage and resale through templates. Images on disc may not include the extended license required for template usage, and you may need to contact the distributor to find out about pricing for such a license. If you have to pay extra for a license that covers template usage for every image on the disc, it might get to be very expensive.

    understand that when you sell a template you need it.
