    Is there a place to find some stock images, photos online royalty free?
    Or for a reasonable price?
    I found a couple but the wanted like $50 per image.
    I need a wedding party, ie: Bride, Groom, Ring Boy, Flower Girl, Brides Maid. All in one picture and just can't find one at all. So finding one I feel safe about putting on a sign seems out of the question.

    We often use istock - their prices are very reasonable.

    What do you plan to do with the images? $50 is cheap for stock photos and, from my experience, they're really not good for more more than web pages. But, here are a few sites...
    office.microsoft.com/clipart/
    www.bigstockphoto.com
    www.comstock.com
    www.gettyimages.com

    125 dollars a month, you can download up to 15 a day or something like that.... they even resample the pictures up to 22MP so you don't have to....

    I did a Google and got like 170 million hits for "stock photos online". Go figure.

    Can you spell digital camera? Last week I couldn't even spell professional photographer ... this week I are one (because Best Buy had a special on Canon Rebels).

    The good stuff that sells for big bucks travels from film to drum scanners to color correction to market. The rest is a flood of shoot till you fill the memory chip, upload it to istockphoto and see if anybody buys anything.

    Kinda reminds me of the complaints I hear about newbies and plotters.

    Even I don't just fill up my memory chip and post it. I know a lot of guys who do though. I delete an average of about 1 out of 10 shots before I even download them onto the computer. I do magazine work a lot and they demand the best you've got, so why even download the cruddy ones?

    I gave up after the first 100 Million.

    Then figured I'd just ask to see if there were a few good places that most designers went to.

    Wasn't just being lazy
