    What stock photo website do you use?

    I use stock photos quite a lot. Int he past I've used photos.com but they have changed the way they do things with their subscriptions and I'm not that happy with them so I am wanting to move on to someone else.

    What stock photo website do you use?

    I am looking one with lots of variety and competitive pricing.

    I've been looking at Shutter Stock lately (http://www.shutterstock.com/)... anyone got a good wrap for them?

    I mainly use StockXpert along with it's free resource sxc.hu as it offers pretty competitive prices for some good quality stuff, however I have found if you want something more expensive but with a wider selection you may want to check out istockphoto (in fact you probably are better getting an account with multiple sources to suit your needs and just buy more credits and images as you need them).

    I'm an istockphoto junkie. I was with sxc.hu, but I got burned with a letter from Corbis after some guy uploaded a Corbis copyrighted image to the site, and sxc had no paper trail nor record of the image was on their servers. As a result, I stick with istockphoto - because they do have a record so if anything like this does happen again, I can prove I acted in good faith
