A big part of web design is gathering stock photos for designs. It seems like a lot of the big sites have increased their prices in recent years where even their smallest stock photos can cost you $20. While you can download a comp version of the image, I often need to edit the photo to make it fit a large space or flip the image or maybe stretch the background that just won’t work with either the watermark or the small size they give you.
Therefore, I opted to find some sources for cheap stock photography that still give great quality. Most of these sites offer credit packages where you pay for maybe $50 in credits and then the photos end up costing you only $1 per photo – a great value.
