Make the Best Picture Quotes with Royalty Free Art
Often the fastest way to find images for picture quotes, blogs, and more, is to use royalty free art.
Why? Since you pay a small fee, the search tools are generally much better than those for free art.
If you have something specific in mind, you’re more likely to find something suitable, and find it more quickly, if you use a paid site.
I bought the eye-catching image for this picture quote on Fotolia for one credit. If you buy the smallest pack of credits – 10 credits for $14 – that’s only $1.40 for this XS image. [pinit]
What Does Royalty Free Mean?
It does NOT mean copyright free. Typically, royalty free art means you pay a one-time fee to use a copyrighted image as many times as you like for advertising or promotion. You don’t have to pay a royalty each time you use the image.
It’s not permitted to resell the image, or use it on an item for sale where the image provides the primary value (poster, T shirt, etc.). If you want to create a product with the image, you need to purchase an “extended license,” which is much more costly. Be sure to check the license specifics on the site where you buy images.
Making the Picture Quote with Royalty Free Art
I found this cutie on Fotolia, and liked her so much I made up a quote to go with the photo! I used the simple, modern font Avant Garde, set in an interesting stacked arrangement, picking up the green from her dress. This kind of design you just have to play around with until you like the results! I stuck with the clean, contemporary white background.
