To tell the truth I do very little design work. I always find it particularly irritating when my shockingly expensive credits expire before I have a chance to use them.
So it was very nice when earlier this I was offered the chance to try out Fotolia for 1 month for free. Ironically I was so busy that I didn’t get around to actually signing up for ages. Eventually I did though, and to be honest it’s great. The website is fast, the search is good, and most importantly there is an extremely wide range of images and illustrations.
Obviously this is a shameless plug, but the next time I need to buy any stock images, Fotolia is actually going to be the first place I look. Good images and very good value (particularly the vector stuff).
For bloggers et al there is also an info microsite http://fotolianews.com/.
