I just want to say the iStockphoto rocks!

I was working on a pamphlet for a charity golf tournament and needed a golf picture for the front cover. I did a Google search for stock photography and came up with sites like Index Stock Photography, Getty Images, and Comstock Images. They all had some decent images, but they were way out of my price range, considering I’m not getting paid for this endeavor.

Sitting at the bottom of the Google search page was iStockphoto.com. Instead of images starting at $50 and very up, the images cost $0.50 a pop. The images are user-contributed and royalty-free. The artists who contribute the photos get $0.10 each time their images are downloaded.

When I dug through the selection of golf images, it was hit or miss with some of the images. However, I quickly found an image that met my needs.

If you’re on a tight budget and designing for print or the web, you should check out iStockphoto.com.

    Stock.XCHNG and Deviant Art are good places, too. (Psst, freebies.)
