If you are selling or promoting anything online, then you know that you need eye-catching, attention-grabbing graphics for your products and marketing materials. Unfortunately, hiring a designer to make custom graphics for you can be expensive, and the cost can quickly add up if you have many items to sell.
So most people get their graphics from Google Images or other people’s websites – usually without their consent.
Uh oh, be careful on that!
I am talking about copyright infringement fines. For example, in 2007 several marketers were sued for using so-called ‘royalty free’ images after they bought a collection of 1,600 such images from the main seller… who ironically didn’t know any better and thought it was okay to compile these images from Google and other websites!
Don’t think this won’t happen to you. Just do a quick Google search on “copyright infringement stock photo” and the list is ENDLESS. It’s not surprising because there are companies that hire employees whose full-time job is to track down these offenders – intentional or not – and boy, collecting fines is BIG business!
Sure, you can try stock photo websites. But notice the prices are getting higher these days? The higher the resolution, the more you have to pay.
