Stock photography is famous for beefing up visual communication messages. In a single glance an ad with a stock photo can say so much more than text alone, and even more powerful when combined with a headline. A stock photo can be subtle in delivery or shout out a bold statement, either way stock photography will definitely help to get attention for your communication piece.

With the Advent of the Internet, Stock Photography Online has Become Abundant
PhotoSpin.com is just such a website. The company is located along the ocean in sunny Southern California where their site serves up images to designers throughout the world. PhotoSpin was one of the first companies to offer royalty-free images via subscription whereby subscribers pay a simple annual fee and are able to go online and download photos, illustrations or fonts whenever they need an image. The company guarantees its quality as being the highest in the industry and their goal is to deliver quality beyond their customersâ€™ expectations. They boast the highest renewal rate of subscribers within the industry and are especially known for their friendly and helpful customer service.
PhotoSpin.com has 20,000 Plus Unique Stock Photos, Illustrations and Fonts Immediately Available Online
Plus, images are available for download not only in JPEG format, (the industry standard), but also in TIF, which allows for repeated editing, and saving, with no loss of quality. JPEG files are compressed, and every time you open them, make a change and save them, they're compressed a little tighter. Each compression results in a loss of quality. TIF files, on the other hand, remain as quality-fresh the hundredth time you save the image as they were when you downloaded them brand-spanking new. PhotoSpin.com is one of the few image banks to offer both options to users.
Different design projects require different file formats. Presentations use low-res jpeg images, web sites prefer low-res gif images, and print projects require high resolution, high quality tiff images for the best possible quality. Unlike most subscription royalty-free image sites, PhotoSpin offers super large sized files big enough for posters (17 inches at 300 dpi) â€“ this is perfect for people who are creating banners, trade show materials, and other oversized print materials.
