How to convey your websites message through images

Often you dont know exactly what photo your looking for till you see it, sometimes that happens by accident.

What techniques do you use to help you find the correct image, or do you just stumble across it?

Do you think having input from other designers and photographers would help speed this process up?

It depends on what website are you talking about.

Your question is too vague.

Ok, I will try to make it more specific. When searching for a photo on stock sites do you know what you’re looking for? Or do you stumble across one and realise thats the picture you need?

Sometimes when I can’t find what I’m looking for at a stock site, I’ll check the other tags (or keywords) from an image on my current search. I helps to see what other related words could help refine the search. It also helps if an image is from a themed series. If an image is almost what I’m looking for, I’ll check the rest of the series.

Great article …Thanks for your great information, the contents are quiet interesting.
