Update: 5th April 2018 – AppSumo have brought back this deal, so grab it while you can !
Do you guys use photos on your websites ?? If so, where are you getting the photos from ??
Previously I was using photographs that were provided on free image sites such as Pixabay, Freepik, Pexels and several others. The problem with this, is that I couldn’t always find a photo I wanted to use. Yes they have a great choice of free images, but in some instances, they simply don’t have the type of image I am after. Another issue that has recently arisen is the actual licensing of photos from free image websites. There was recently a discussion of some of these free image websites sharing photographs that were not intended to be offered for free. People were uploading them to the site, claiming that they were their own photos, when in fact they weren’t.
However, a year or so back, there was a special deal on AppSumo for a stock photo site called Deposit Photos. The deal was that you could download 100 high quality photos of vectors for just $49. At first I was skeptical of this, as it seemed too good to be true. I know some stock photo sites sell a single image for around $20 depending on the size.
So my first concern was that I’d only be allowed to download the smallest version of the image. That wasn’t the case. You could pick whatever resolution you wanted !! My second concern was that you would need to download your 100 images within a certain time frame or the credits would expire. Again, this wasn’t the case. Your credits never expire, so you could use them in 3 years time if you wanted.
The photos are extremely high quality, and you’d be paying a huge sum per photo from similar stock photo websites. In fact, on Deposit Photos – they actually have an option for “images on demand” where you can pick up 100 images for $299 !!
With the deal at AppSumo costing just $49, I always pick up multiple copies of this deal, which last me a good 6 months at least, during which time, I can be using top quality images on a number of my websites.
This deal always sells out quickly, so if you want to pick up the best online deal for stick photos, then grab your copy today !!
The worst thing you can do to your website is to use poor quality images. Actually, what is even worse is “borrowing” other peoples images from other websites. You might soon find yourself in a lot of legal trouble if this is something you do. For just $49, isn’t it worth your peace of mind that you are using high quality and legally licensed images across your own websites.
