Great Option: Copyright Free ImagesDid you know that there are tons of wonderful copyright free photos? They are called 'public domain images'. It takes a bit more to find the right one for your design (and the resolution is varied although not worse than a lot of DA stocks ), but hey, you don't have to worry about begging for model releases, waiting for permissions and so on! On the long run I bet you even save some time.More Like This
