Royalty free images?

Recommended Posts

I remember Linus used to use a service that had a monthly costs but would allow you to use images for your own work/company.  Royalty free but with subscription costs.  What was that company/service?

We really want to be careful, I am working with a multimillion dollar company so when we publish articles we had to follow laws.

the thing with subscription based or even paying based stock websites is that you have to pay a certain price depending on how you want to use the picture. So if it is for an ad the price is different than for something else. Or if you'll use it as a book cover, then you need different licenses depending on how many copies you sell. The cheap license may be enough for 10K copies, but if you plan on distributing 100K they want another type of license, more expensive.

There are many more services as such, but they all propose more or less the same plans/pricing. Just check beforehand what you want to do with it.

Sounds like they should already have their own service for that. But Linus used Getty Images I believe.

We are looking to use in blogs, videos and articles.  So technically only a few copies?

basic license usually is enough. Like I said and others also said, if youre going to have like...ok, with my book example, if you'll sell 100K copies of it, you probably have a dedicated graphic designer doing this.

What about pixabay? I've used footage from there quite a number of times, and it's free. Also, at least as far as I know, you can even use most of the things from pixabay for commercial purposes...

If they are that rich (the company) then hire a photographer to take pictures custom for your needs.

Pond5 have multiple types of media, and you pay per thing rather than a subscription. Haven't used it personally tho.


“Remember to look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Try to make sense of what you see and wonder about what makes the universe exist. Be curious. And however difficult life may seem, there is always something you can do and succeed at. 
It matters that you don't just give up.”

-Stephen Hawking
