I am looking for good websites providing royalty free stock images for pay.
I'm not looking for sites that make images available for free and require attribution or non-commercial use; they're already covered in another question.
I'd also like hear some comments of the service:
- What kind of payment options they offer?
- e.g. do you have to buy a bulk of credits or can items be bought separately? Sometimes buying bulk credits won't suit my projects.
- How much do they have content?
- e.g. psdGraphics is interesting for its payment options, but I found its supply lacking.
- How is the overall content quality?
- e.g. does the site have vast disperse in quality, which usually is the case with big, major sites (such as iStockPhoto or does the site have strict quality requirements?
What sites do you use to buy graphics / backgrounds / images for commercial design purposes?
In answer to DA01's question, I am looking mostly for backgrounds and object graphics. They are used to create designs for websites / applications. If the site also carries photography, that is an added bonus. Site templates or complete themes are not required.
