    I have a question, not entirely related but do you think Adobe CC is worth the price? For someone like me that is a beginner and wants to become very familiar with Photoshop, Premiere Pro & After Affects. I am looking to get into it professionally in the future but for now I'm just beginning so I really need to know it will be worth it before I go ahead and get a full subscription. Thanks 🙂

    Great video. Will you be doing more live photoshop videos like the one you did a couple days ago?

    It looks like you will have to make the " free stock images sites" video sooner than you think LOL

    Free CC0 images at Pixabay. They have only 780000 pictures but it's free and quality is ok.

    I was using Istock photos for a while until we got an adobe subscription at work. I need a variety of images and graphics since I do all the design work for our ads, coupons, website, posters etc. I'm a bigger fan of adobe stock now b/c I noticed our competitors using some of the same stock images we had that I downloaded from Istock. The Getty images are more common that the ones on adobe stock

  • Reply Stephanie Noel October 26, 2016 at 2:53 pm

    Since I am unemployed and don't have much money to spend I use free stock photography sites like Morguefile, Free Images, Pixabay, and CG Textures. Sometimes I take the pictures myself. Eventually later down the line I would move towards the paid sites instead.

    good info thanks

    Hey Mr. Blake! This particular question isn't about stock images but it is important. I am a graphic designer and I have my BFA in graphic design but I'm currently undecided on how important a Masters Degree is to the real world graphic designer and the market place. (As I am considering getting a B.S. in Marketing instead of the MFA and just doing graphic design internships to build my skill levels).
    I guess my question is In the field of design do you feel that real world experience > college degree, particularly a Masters Degree in Design? Your opinion would be greatly appreciated. =^|

    Thanks a lot Blake. I also find a very useful resource. What are your thoughts?

  • Reply Matt Christian November 1, 2016 at 1:18 am

    I use PixaBay. They have all a Graphic Designer needs: Jpeg, PNG, Vector, anything in between. as well as you get to choose the dimensions of the image. Please let me know what you decide about it.

    Hi, Roberto I'm from Trinidad and Tobago and I'm on my way to setting up my own freelance graphic design business. However im indecisive on what is the best affordable laptop to get and my country isnt the best resource for these things as they offer sub-standard and obscene rates. Any suggestions?

    Hey, great guide! Just make sure the photos you find, are really completely free. As there is some risk to CC0 and Public Domain license, that covers most free photos. There's a lot of info online, for example here

    So usefull!! I'm in school and at a job interview they asked where I usually get my stock photos from. I honestly never thought about it before. And the only thing I use is DeathtotheStockPhoto, but I know nothing about using stock photos for let's say.. a company's Instagram.
