Where to find photos for sale

When you buy images from a reputable stock photo outlet, you are buying peace of mind. You do not have to worry about violating copyright if you buy a photo and use it. Sometimes, photo rights can be complicated, because companies selling stock photos are offering images for different purposes. Photography prints may be priced differently than photos intended for web use.

Buy photos from Getty Images

Getty images
Getty images has one of the most popular stock photo sites. Getty has celebrity photos for sale, photos of stock images, and images that are related to current news events. When you buy an image from Getty Images, you can choose between royalty free and rights ready. Royalty free images When you get royalty free images, you are getting photos that you can use, but not actually own. This means that other people can use the photos, because they can also get them. Rights ready photos You can also buy rights ready photos, which means that you can choose the level of rights that you want to purchase. If you want to make sure that you have exclusive use of a photo, you should buy the more expensive rights ready photos. Determining the price When clicking on a Getty Images rights ready photo, you have to indicate how you will use the photo in order to determine the price. For example, a rights managed photo can be licensed for one-time use or multiple uses. The price will be calculated after you explain how you will use it.
