Stock photos for your small business blog, Website, e-book, or traditional book abound on the Web. But be careful! Book publishing coach Kristen Eckstein warns about some of the dangers you may face with licensing agreements and which sites you may wish to avoid. Plenty of resources exist for entrepreneurs seeking to create their own media or information products with first rate photos. Simply be careful whose photos you are using, what companies you are doing business with, and what hidden costs and requirements may lurk behind seemingly innocent agreements.

I use stock images most of the time and I use tools to manipulate them to achieve the look I want. I create something from other people's creations. This article has refreshed my mind and that I should be very careful in using stock images. Thank you!

Great article. Stock Photography is a tricky beast. The presence or lack of good stock imagery can make or break a design. My best advice is to use custom photography/artwork whenever possible. Thanks for sharing.
