Death to Stock Photo review


We all love great looking photos on our website and social media posts. But it's often hard to find ones you can use knowing you're not breaking copyright. Just picking images up off Google or another website could mean you're using someones photo or illustration without their permission, and as they own it they can contact you to take it down or charge you for it, and it can get messy (check out this recent post about a blogger who had used images found on Google and other social sharing sites without permission Blogger Beware: You CAN Get Sued For Using Photos You Don't Own on Your Blog).

There are a few websites that have free images available, SXC and morgueFile. iStockPhoto also have one photo available for free each week.

But at the end of last year Death to the Stock Photo popped up. http://join.deathtothestockphoto.com
Once you sign up (just submit your email) Death to the Stock Photo email you 10 high resolution lifestyle photos at the start of every month that you can use on your website, social media and print. They also have a paid version where you get an extra 10 photos each month.

Usually free photos can mean a bit of work scrolling through the bad and the good but Death to the Stock Photo really have focused on quality in photo style and usability.

Each month a new photographer is featured (the above photo is from the February 2014 featured photographer Simone Anne), so there is the possibility that some months you will receive photos that don't suit your business or its style, but other months you will love and be able to use them all. The bonus is the usability quality of the image, each photo is high resolution so you are able to use them in brochures and other printed products as well as on your website and social media.

If you're after more photos you can use without copyright issues it's definitely worth checking out.

    Finding high-quality, free to use images is a major battle every blog writer fights. Great imagery is a crucial piece of a great blog article.

    You really can’t beat free. Just don’t go overboard on adding tons of random pictures to your posts now that you have access to them. Make sure they’re all relevant and add value.
