On Veer

4 Nov

Last, but definitely not least, in my exploration of stock image sites (I’ve covered flickr and iStock) is Veer.

Veer seems to be the best choice of the three, if you’re willing to pay up for top-notch images. It caters a lot more to creative types; along with images, they sell fonts, merchandise and even ideas.

In my opinion, the best part about this site is that they calculate the cost for you. Maybe it’s just me, but I find usage costs really confusing and time-consuming to calculate, especially if you have to it for image after image after image.

Here’s a couple more nice little features at Veer:

Right there in the sidebar, you can choose all of your advanced search options. You can choose so easily that you need a low-priced, extra-large image. It’s magnificent.

They even have almost creepily specific options for photos of people, which is great for those who need politically correct imagery (this happens often).

Just beautiful. I think I may have to start using Veer.com more often.
