Where Do I Get Photos?
Where Do I Get Photos? - What kind of photos are suitable?
There are many places that you can get photos. Some of the more obvious ones include your own photos or those taken by family or friends. This is great if you want a picture of your pets or kids, however if you want something not so easily obtainable or if taking photos isn't something you are good at there are lots of other options both for free and to buy. Some of these options you may know others may be new.
- Your own photos
To avoid disappointment follow some basic guidlines. Please note that these need to be quality photos. Check that the eyes are in focus. If it is a pet or animal also check that the nose is in focus. Remove red eye. Check the image isn't blurred. Check that the image isn't too light or too dark. Make sure the image is large enough for a quality print as small images will be fuzzy and unclear.
- Free Photos
There are lots of places on-line where you can get free photos that give you permission to use them. Flickr is one of the popular places to do this.
- Buying Photos
If you want to buy photos this gives you more scope and a better chance of getting good quality photos in a large range of subjects. Photos start at as little as $1.
