Looking for good pictures and videos

Mon Oct 27, 2008 1:27 am

Hello everyone,

I was wondering if anyone knows where I can find a good source of pictures and videos for my website (located in my signature).

I'm looking for the best there is so I can provide the best information for my visitors. Please let me know if you have any ideas.

I will greatly appreciate it.

Best regards,

Hector

Stock photos

Just go to Google.com and search for:

stock photos (or)
royalty free photos

You'll find a bunch of nice pics just by doing that.

BTW, some of the nicer ones (or larger sized ones) require a fee.

I googled for stock videos and found tons or places for royalty-free stock videos. I see that they range from $10 - $100 depending on quality. $10 is of course the lowest quality.

Some places you may want to check out,

Hey Hector,
You may also want to check out www.stockvault.net

Often, photographers will offer their pictures for free, but may require you to give them credit on your website. It all depends.

whatever you do, when you choose a provider type their name in a google search followed by the word scam. there is a company out there that sells stocked photos. it has about 18 or more company names and all of them will suck you.

Using Google image search or any other image search engine combined with the right keywords will surly give the results you seek.

Try looking for the images and videos through Dogpile [dot] com which shows combined results of various search engine for your search term. Also you can try for Iclipart [dot] com, to search for images for your website.

I would recommend to use some open source photography sites. There are many freelance photographers out there who can just grant you usage rights to their photographs, try impressing one. Of course it is applicable only when you want your website to be perfect and top notch.
