Record the download date, photographer and agency so you can review terms and service agreements if you use it in the future. Creating your own image library through unused subscriptions is a great way to be even faster on your feet when a deadline or blog post requires an image.


Image size can effect the cost and use of an image. Having the option to buy different sizes makes buying stock photos economical. Why buy a larger sized image and invest more money if you don’t need that size. Save your money to invest into a large image when you need it.
