What to consider when choosing wildlife stock photos

If you are looking for some quality wildlife stock photos, chances are that you're hoping to get your money's worth. Since some animal pictures are of higher quality than others, you will need to be able to find the picture that gives you the best quality for your buck. This article will outline what to look for in these stock pictures for maximum optimisation.

What to look for

If you want quality animal pictures, look for the following: 1. A high resolution This should be of a width and length above 1000 pixels. Normally, this factor is listed on the website itself, but if not, just right click on the preview picture, then go to properties. You should see the resolution there. 2. A close-up picture Any skilled photographer can get a close-up picture, whether through magnification or taking a close-up picture of nature. 3. A picture that is non-airbrushed These pictures are edited in PhotoShop, and are often discredited due to the sole fact that they were edited at all. 4. A royalty free stock image After you pay for it, you should not need to pay royalties for each view on your website.

What not to look for

You should keep your eye out for the following: 1. Do not save a preview image and remove the copyright logo. This is considered as a copyright infringement in many countries. 2. Do not get animal pictures in low resolution. This will lead to ambiguity of people looking at the image. 3. Do not buy stock pictures of animal wildlife unless they are from the licensed provider. Be on the lookout for scams (people reselling images that they bought, but have no rights to resell). 4. Make sure that every nature photo which you buy is not overused on the Internet. Visit other sites about nature, and see if they have the same image that you are thinking about buying. If they do, it is most likely best to choose another image in order to remain a somewhat unique website. 5. Do not break the Terms of Service of the site that you buy the picture from. Always read the purchase contract very carefully, to make sure that you are not breaking any of the site's rules.
