    I need one of their pics, in xsmall size, so it's only $1, but the minimum amount you can open an account with is $18 :wtf:

    Not that it wouldn't be simple to photoshop the watermark out (of this particular image; some would be hard, tho), but I want to stay legal.

    How does istockphoto work legally. Can someone else buy me the image and then I can legally use it or what.


    edit - maybe i shouldn't complain... shutterstock wants $49 for 12 downloads, and crestock is $5 minimum per image :wtf:

    iStockphoto sometimes has some great stuff you can't get at the freebie sites.

    I got the $20 credits or whatever and used one picture, and the rest of the credits expired. It sucked, but I couldn't find a good equivalent picture anywhere else, including those free stock photo sites. I have a whole bookmark folder full of free stock sites, so it's not for lack of trying.

    fotolia has one that might work and they only require a minimum credit purchase of $10.

    I guess that's better than $18.

    I tried to get my bookmarks.html excerpt and export, but both were crap (bunch of extra markup, and huge json file respectively.)

    If you can do something with this, knock yourself out:

    http://pastebin.ca/1348579

    Includes resources for textures, photos, vectors, icons, etc.

    I need some Firefox plugin to share bookmark collections...
