Getting to Picture Perfect

By  | 

At the start of my journey as a journalist, I interned for a photography magazine in Brooklyn, NY. While most of my job was content related, I occasionally had to do some photoshop and select images to pair with the articles I was writing.

I mentioned in an earlier post about how this is very crucial to the success of not just your webpage but your brand even if you are just blogging. To make things easier I compiled a list of a few places to get stock imagery if  you are not a pro when it comes to photography or maybe you are a startup and the budget is tight. These sites are free and not entangled in copyright battles. Most of them ask you to credit and not assume ownership of what you use.
