PhotographerWhen it comes to graphic design, you don’t want to skimp on the quality of your images. As a web designer, it’s also nice to have an affordable collection of stock photography whose price is based on just that – the resolution of the image. If you don’t need the highest resolution stock photography, simply choose a smaller resolution, and pay less. Big Stock Photo offers just this kind of tiered pricing. For a limited time, use promo code HW2333 to get a free photo credit when you sign up.

Search for the high-resolution stock photo you need

Big Stock Photo lets you search for your image by keyword and category. You can also see how popular images are, how many downloads they get, when they were uploaded, etc. Furthermore, if you like a particular artist you can browse all of their work. Images are often available in various formats, so if you’re a graphic designer you can download the source file, if you’re a web designer that is just looking for a quick image to plop into your webpage, you can download a smaller resolution jpeg or gif, ready to optimize and upload to your website.

Yeah, istockphoto is a great resource for images. There is also sxc.hu which has mostly free images. Although I’ve found that they are not as high a quality as istockphoto


The stock photo is indeed nice. You can get a very vivid copy of the pictures you need. High Resolution! Also, wide variety/stocks of high resolution photos made available to everyone.


There’s plenty of other stock photography services out there, but I have yet to find the quality of high resolution stock photography provided by independent photographers that IStockPhoto offers. My only peeve is that some of the vector images can only be downloaded with a minimum of 15 credits, when all I need is a small jpeg (usually 1 credit). Too bad for the photographer I guess, for not offering that option.
