Liquid Library

On the surface, Liquidlibrary.com seems to be an impressive service. After all, it can give you access to thousands of interesting images, a convenient search forum, and good technical support. Yet the range of images at Liquid Library is surprisingly limited, given the number of downloadable files they have, and all of the royalty free sites boast great technical support. A good way to "test" sites is to do a search on various sites with the same keyword and then compare quality of imagery, not number of images. Chances are, you'll find huge gaps between the two.

Fortunately, there are alternatives to the Liquid Library subscription service. PhotoSpin.com, for instance, gives its clients four different subscription service options, ranging from a Super Plus program for high-resolution graphics, video, and audio to more cost-effective web subscription service packages. You can even try out their service for free and get access to a range of images, to see whether or not the company meets your application needs.

A Great Alternative to the Liquid Library Interface
PhotoSpin.com was the brainchild of an artistically savvy group of Southern Californians, who, in 1996, decided to develop a unique online artistic and media access network. From the very beginning, PhotoSpin.com proved itself both extremely competent and unique in the industry. The company developed 60 CD ROMs and packages for publishers, including the world-famous Kai's Power Photos. They also developed material for a highly-acclaimed Premier Series.

Industry professionals seem to agree that PhotoSpin.com is both cost-effective and user-friendly. If you have any technical questions about your graphic applications or how to use the Photospin.com interface, you can contact a service representative, and someone will get back to you quickly. All told, PhotoSpin offers a staggering 20,000 photographs and illustrations as well as a myriad of video clips, clip art, and streaming audio clips.
