iStockPhoto is getting better, but more expensive
Amount: $1.00 per photo
Posted by: PCGuyinCali in San Jose, CA.Posted: December 15th, 2006 12:12PM
Firm: iStockPhoto.comType of Image: jpg photos, some gif images
Quality of Image: some decent, have to search around
I've used iStockPhoto for some of my friend's web sites. Their photos have gotten better over the years, and there's more variety. They've increased the prices -- now you need to buy "credits" ($10 gets you 10 credits) which you must spend wihtin 1 year. Small pictures I get usually cost 1-5 credits ($1-$5). But I worry if I don't used up all my credits in time (or forget), I'll have wasted part of my money.
