2.1. Stock Images

The Big Name Stock Photo Sites

These are all paid sites. You either subscribe to a monthly plan which allows you to download a set number per month. Usually unused downloads roll over to the next month. Or you buy credit packs which are good for a year. Then buy images using credits. The larger the image or more unique, the more expensive.
