Images and photography is an important area for most websites. If you are looking to update areas of your website with new images, there are a variety of sources you can try.


Photo Libraries



The easiest place to look for new imagery is within online photo libraries. These libraries set their own pricing structures and have their own set of rules for image use. A few of the most popular sites are listed below. Be sure to check the usage licences as these can vary across different purposes. 



Photographers


If you are looking for original photographs for your website, Social You recommend speaking to a photographer. Although this option will be more expensive than purchasing from image libraries, it will mean that the copyright of the images remain with you and you will have the ability to use them where and whenever you like. It is worth considering appointing a photographer for images such as:

  • The Team 
  • The Office 
  • Location Shots
  • Product
