As a Blogger you know how to craft wonderful posts that convey your words, feelings and convictions. Your opinion and your voice are unique. Pairing that voice with strong, emotionally resonant photographs would make your blog stand out among the crowd, as people are always drawn words by way of powerful pictures.
The problem; you’re no photographer, and purchasing photos online is difficult and costly. Sure you could make a screen-grab and just take what you want, but if you have true integrity and want your Blog to be YOUR Blog you’re stuck with having to either buy your pics or use inferior pics that you take yourself. But don’t fret, because there are a few solutions and today we’re looking at one of them: Depositphotos stock photos can handle all of your photo content needs, whether you need 1 photograph or an entire themed collection. They have some of the best stock photos on the web, incorporating live shots of real people, clip-art and designs that really stand out. Their website is organized intuitively so that you can get in, get what you need, and get out without wasting precious time, and they work with a solid base of excellent photographers and designers worldwide.
Depositphotos gives you access to a vast photographic library, filled with vector images, clip art, hi-def photos and even videos, and is the #1 resource on the net for royalty-free files and images. They also buy, so they’re a great place to go if you’re a photographer or designer looking to sell your images. Depositphotos has taken care of all intellectual BS for you too, so that you’re sure that there will never be any problems with intellectual property rights. All you need to do is concentrate on what you need or what you have to offer and they take care of all the legal mumbo-jumbo.
There’s even better news, as Depositphotos has a Free Trial where they will give you free stock images for a week when you first sign up and a new program which allows bloggers to get free subscriptions if they write a honest review or organize a contest.
So go take a look at their Concepts page where you’ll find images that you can use to bring your concepts, thoughts and ideas to life. Food, nature, religion and much more, it’s all covered and all shot in stunning detail and clarity. Need some great shots of food for your Foodie Blog? No problem. Want something to dress up your religious debate Blog? They’ve got you covered.
I did find one drawback to the site; In order to get the free stock images offer you need to give your CC info and, as with the vast majority of these types of giveaways, if you don’t cancel within the 7 day period they start charging you a monthly fee. Not my cup of tea because I always forget to cancel. Of course if you love the service and want to keep purchasing you’ll be signing up anyway, making this a moot point.
Whatever you decide the fact is that Depositphotos offers a great service for a reasonable price and makes selling, finding and purchasing high quality photos a breeze. If you need to make your Blog look great, they can help you do that and we can definitely recommend them.
