A picture is worth 1000 words. How much are we willing to pay for the right picture? How many keys are we willing to tap to acquire the right image?
When it comes to price, I like to acquire images for free. I don’t use the images for a business purpose, so it’s not an investment. The cost is not just about the price, it’s the overhead of acquisition: license considerations, payment structures, administrative overhead. When possible, I like to take and use my own photos, like this one of my talented, top-of-her-class, botton-of-the-slide gregarious, fun-loving, joy-bringing granddaughter.
