    Say you need some art or whatever for your site/ads/whatever, but you don't want to pay an artist or model or take the time to set up a shoot... what image sites have you used?

    is crestock.com any good?

    Maybe I'm dumb but I can't find anything on their site. When I search for something I get ad results but no photos. Is it just a directory?

    As far as I have seen its pretty standard.

    Although I haven't paid for any/used any due to my still being in college :x:

    $18 per image? Most of them I saw I thought were a few bucks per image, but you had to buy a minimum of $10 in credits.

    btw after spending a few hours looking through images, I saw some that I have seen used before by well-known companies; especially online dating companies :rofl:
