StockXpert Closing Its Doors

Posted by: Char | Comments (5)

StockXpert, one of my favorite resources for inexpensive yet high quality graphics for just about any design need you might have, is closing its doors this week. You can no longer purchase credits and any unused credits you may have need to be spent or transferred to iStockPhoto this week. According to the email – all StockXpert credits will be transferred on February 11. If you miss that date, you will still be able to transfer your credits anytime over the next 6 months, until August 11, 2010.

I am really sorry to see this great resource go.

Quick Tip – iStockPhoto Freebies

Posted by: Char | Comments (4)

iStockPhotoiStockPhoto is one of my favorite places to get inexpensive, professional looking graphics for my projects. However, did you know that you can get FREE images from them, too?

Create an account with iStockPhoto and then check back weekly as they feature a handful of free images each week. If I think I may have use for them now or in the future, I go ahead and download them to a folder on my computer. Whenever I need an image, I check my art folder first, and then go to other sources if I still need something.
