maybe this has been posted some where before, I just realize this and decided to share, hope it benefits someone So here is how to find the i-stock images without the water mark. 1) Find the watermarked image you want. 2) save the image to your computer. 3) go to google images (http://www.google.com/imghp) 4) click the little camera icon in the search box. 5) select "upload an image" 6) upload the saved file from step 2 7) click image search 8) if the image is popular there is a good chance you'll find it without the watermark.
