FOTOLIA

The awesome folks at Fotolia are offering FIVE of my readers a free 2-week subscription to their stock photo (and more!) site. I ask for one thing: you MUST be a follower of Soyconfessions to obtain this sub, as this offer only extends to my lovely readers.

For this and the upcoming four posts, whoever comments on the post first will get offered the subscription. Leave your email address, and I'll email you the coupon code! Alright? Get ready, set... go.

As a blogger, I do find myself needing to use photos taken from other sites on the Internet, and thus copyright issues may ensue. By using a photo stock site, I can be sure to avoid copyright infringement, and also ease my search for quality photos. For the record, this is my first time using a stock photo site.

Fotolia is a royalty-free stock photo house, which means that customers pay a fee (credits, in this case, @ $0.75/credit) to use an image multiple times for multiple uses, and other customers may buy the exact same image. Fotolia also offers their subscription for hardcore stock photo users (downloading more than 25 images/day), starting with a 1-month sub with 25 photo downloads/day @ $249 USD. This does seem expensive in my opinion, as I am a student working part-time after all. However, this is ideal for companies using these stock photos for advertisements and commercials. And for light users, credits is definitely the way to go.

The people from Fotolia has also offered me a 1-month subscription with 5 images/day, and I will be making good use of that! At the end of the month, I will review their site honestly. I would like to thank Fotolia for giving me this opportunity, but rest assured, my review will be my personal opinions only!


So far I've downloaded 5 images today and I've used 3 of them for this post.

My review will be up once my sub ends in 1 month.

Love,
Mimi.

  4. Damn, I was close though. Haha.
    What a lovely giveaway, I usually just get photos from wherever across Google Images and leave a little message plus credit to whomever I borrowed it on, I'm not too fussed on Copyright although once someone wasn't too happy when I used one of their pics and defaced it (not in a bad way) so every now and again I freak at whether or not I'm breaching copyright rules...
    So anyway back to the main topic: I love that last photo, Imma try to do that :D
