Micro and Macro stock image websites offer a wide variety of images, video, and vector files for you to use as a base for site background images, banners, presentations, mid-article imagery and so much more. The trouble is finding a stock image provider that offers a solid range of choices, with a very high standard of quality all at an affordable price.
We are fans of iStock because they provide easy ways for me to search for images, in fact, they just released a new Image Search tool which allows you to search for similar images to an example image that you can provide! You can try the Image Search option here. iStock offers a range of credit price options as well as subscription services. If you find that you do not use all your downloads within a month during your subscription, that’s OK because they offer download roll-overs on a monthly basis if you have auto-renew selected or an annual subscription. If you only want to buy a single image to start instead of subscribing right away, that’s an option too starting at 3 credits per image.
If you really don’t want to commit to purchase for the first trial, iStock offer a free image, illustration and video every single week.
