Stock Photos by Subscription

header laptophandsIf you are heeding latest best practices advice you are working to have compelling images to share with your content. Since changing the design of this blog several months ago, I have been on the lookout for great sources for visuals to accompany each post.

I have explored several sites, but the one that I find most compelling so far is Death To The Stock Photo. When you sign up, you get a pack of free stock photos every month. I like that this lands in my inbox like a gift. And, this makes me constantly add to my supply of images to work with.

The images are licensed for commercial use so they can be used wherever you like. They are mostly made up of general lifestyle shots. The image with this post is one example.

They also offer a premium service that gives you access to more photos each month and access to past photos online.

The only hitch for me is that, depending on my Internet connection, the monthly folder of images can take a while to download. But, all good things come to those who wait!

Give it a try. And, if you have a go-to source you are willing to share, please comment here.
