A Quick Warning

Please note that before you use ANY stock photo that is not yours, you should always read the terms and conditions first. This even goes for paid photos because they may have restrictions on where and how you can use them.

For example, some photos may be perfectly fine to use in a blog post, but not ok to use in an ad or something you plan to sell, like an ebook. So make sure you’re not violating any copyright laws by reading the terms of use first!

  • I love, love, love Haute Chocolate and Jana from TwigyPosts. I used Jana’s stock photos to redo my blog home page and I get sooo many compliments on the design and images. It really does make a difference. I appreciate these free resources, I can’t quite plunk down the money or settle on just one stock photography subscription service quite yet, they are all great!

  • Heya Ms. M!

    I got a subscription to IvoryMix through some blog bundle I bought somewhere, and that alone was worth it! Kayla listens to her clients. I asked her for some stock photos for those of us whose niche appeals to geeks, punks, artistic types, and it’s on her list. All I had to do was ask! Also, asked for a plain square pillow ‘mockup’. It’s on the list. The coffee cup one I asked for has been added. She’s super swell, and her photos aren’t a BILLION dollars…they just look like they are. And nope, not an affiliate (yet!).

    Also wondering where you’ve been (was going to send an email) and am looking forward to hearing all about it!!

    • Marianne says:

      Hi Stacy, yep sorry i’ve been a little absent, i’ve been hard at work though, not giving up yet! 🙂

      I’m so glad to hear of your experiences with IvoryMix, that’s fantastic that she listens to her audience so well. She’s a true professional.

  • Daniel Ryan says:

  • Marianne,

    I just wanted to thank you for this very kind and generous feature. I’m glad to know I still make the cut with all the new kids in town! Thank you again for including me!

  • I Love Haute Chocolate so much, it is so much thinner and I think if it can be set up, then the loading time will be too much short duration! Obviously, Chaitra of Creative Convex and Pink Pot Design Studio is a highly talented photographer.
