Hi all,

 

The Office of Information Technology at the University of Colorado Boulder recently completed a redesign of our website. We now have a much more graphically charged website and therefore have need for more information technology photos than our university photo database provides.

 

Do any of you have recommendations for stock photo sources that you prefer for “techy” photos. A colleague recommended Getty Images but this seems very pricey for our needs. We probably use about five to 10 photos a month, mostly for online publishing.

 

Your recommendations and thoughts would be much appreciated.

 

Thank you,

 

Greg

iStock Photo has worked well for us.  You buy some credits and use them as needed.

Thank you to everyone who responded to my inquiry. It seems the stock photo service of choice for people on this listserv is iStockPhoto. Great suggestion! And it’s affordable.

 

Thank you all.

Hi!

I use Stock.Xchng  http://www.sxc.hu/home

Lots of good free images, and more "premium" for pay- but I can always find a free one I like.
