By the title of this article you can probably tell that this is going to be different than most of my other posts. If not, maybe this is your first time reading on my site, or maybe you just don’t have very strong reading comprehension skills. However, if you are not a reader, I wonder how you would have found my blog? Maybe one of my Advertiser friends gave me a free marketing gimmick that tricked you. If that’s the case, please, stick around, things are about to get very very interesting. Maybe not in this article, but the next one. Actually, I think this is a pretty good article. This article deals with stock photography, and how annoying it is to find good photos to match your articles online, and how I finally found a website that solves this problem in a totally great way.
Are you interested? If not, something really interesting happens at the end but for now it’s a secret.
Now I’ve got you.
Anyway, basically what I’m suggesting is this new site I found that is the first-ever excellent collection of stock photography online. Stock photography often ends up being similar to what elevator music is to music. It takes all of the art out of a thing, and boils down to its most boring, basic, and somehow commercially viable core.
So, as someone who cares about things like quality and originality, I must say that dealing with stock photography has literally been a nightmare. Literally. Several nightmares have involved riding the world’s best article and having to attach some mediocre picture of a child on a swing or somebody jumping over a gap between cliffs.
EyeEm is, relatively, the Holy Grail of Stock Photography. I advise you to go there if you need stock photos, and not even consider going anywhere else. I’m not being paid by this company, I’m seriously telling you it is that much better than its Alternatives, and I would know, I have been doing this for years, and I am severely critical of almost all things.
For your own good, and the good of the internet, check it out.
