    I need photos for articles on my blog. I'm willing to pay for them (1$/picture?). Where can I get these? Which website has the best database?

    Hi,

    Why dont you google your image then customise them using PS - if you still want to pay for them use sites like fotolia.

    Google Images Search, Bing Image Search and stock photos (if you are looking to pay).

    Just to add to this, one should check in Advanced Search Options that they're searching for CC-attributed photos - otherwise it might come back and seriously hurt you.

    Hello,

    I can get you any images from shutterstock for a fraction of the cost depending on how many you need. PM me if you're interested!

    Yes, we are also using images from these sites! Anyways good share here for the people who doesn't know.

    I don't know, why OP willing to pay $1 for free stuffs.. Search on Google images and if you know Photoshop then change as per your requirements. That's it! you can get your fav images for free.

     
    • Thanks Thanks x 1

    Yes, I agree with you. I usually use that way to optimize my blog. Open search engine and choose image search. enter keywords, so you will get your targeted image.
