Purchasing Images: Buy the Best that You Can Afford


When searching for and purchasing images, buy the best size you can afford – the largest image at the best resolution. This will give you lots of options for using and re-using that image in multiple places (ebooks, your website, social media, print materials, etc.) and well as making sure it looks good. Using a small image and then trying to resize it so it’s bigger often ends up with the image appearing fuzzy and out of focus online, and looks even worse when printed. Not the best image for your business (no pun intended :-).

There are lots of resources available that have affordable images for purchase. Some of these include:

…and there are plenty more to choose from. You just have to do a little searching to find exactly what you’re looking for.

Buy with the image in mind that you want your customers to have in their head when they see your work and think of you later. I promise it will pay off in the long run.
