How many of us use Stock Photography? I am guessing 90% of you raised your hands! If you are not developing websites then you are using stock images for social media or print ads.

I just spent  about two weeks working on a project for a local company, and had to  search through Istock for photos that would fit this companies new brand and image. I had no idea how many BAD images there were out there. And by bad, I mean images that you could tell were from stock photography! It is not like the beginnings of website design where you couldn’t tell if someone used a picture they took or borrowed it from another site. Your customer can tel now!

Business 2 Community took the time to write out 6 things that you should NOT have in your stock photography. I believe they got them all right! Especially the pretty woman with the headset. I am almost 99% sure I am not speaking to her in a chat!

Do you agree with this list? Any other items you can add?
