Great images are a foundational element of every TIQ Software project.
There are different ways to find and source images including using stock photography or hiring a professional photographer.
If you have a limited budget stock photos may be a good fit. There are several stock photography sites that offer high quality images for free.
Some examples include:
There are also paid stock photography sites where you can sign up for an account to purchase individual images or you can get a monthly subscription to their image collections.
Many stock photo websites allow you to save images to a lightbox (folder) prior to downloading. This is great if your organization requires approval before you decide to purchase individual images.
Some popular stock sites include:
Things to note:
- Double check the licensing restrictions of an image before purchasing to make sure it can be used the way you intend.
- When you purchase an image, you can download it at various resolutions and sizes. Have a look at our article on changing images to make sure your image fits TIQ's requirements.
- Anyone can purchase the same image as you so keep in mind that you may see this image somewhere else (you don't own the image outright).
If you have time and money, custom photography is a great option. Custom images ensure that you have a set of unique images for your project and organization.
Usually a photographer will work with you to determine a budget, appropriate time, location, and logistics (props, lighting, models) for a photoshoot.
