Stock photography is great when building websites. Not only does it provide you with necessary images for client websites, such as images in a rotating banner or enhancing content, but it also works brilliantly for sample content for photo galleries until the client has had time to upload their own photos.
Normally these stock photos are quite inexpensive for projects even though you probably will not purchase them just to use as sample content.
What you can do is to take advantage of the stock photo websites’ free weekly downloads. Each week my to-do list alerts me to the fact that I need to download the free weekly offerings from both iStockPhoto and Shutterstock, two high-quality websites that each offer free photos and illustrations every week. All you need is to become a member which is free.
