    I saw the thread for the window cleaner making a new logo, I though some of you might find this website of use. This is where I got the cover image for my book.

    The cost can be a free or a few pence to a few pounds depending on use, file, type, size etc.

    http://en.fotolia.com/Info/Vectors

    It should be very easy to use, click on Vectors for example, type in the search something like – window cleaning – or – Water droplet – hit search and have a look at what comes up. There are other image banks around, if you can’t find anything on this site.

    I use Fotolia for all of my sites and I'd definitely recommend it. Good prices, great images and their database of pictures is massive! There aren't many WFP images on there but plenty of trad.

    It's excellent - I couldn't recommend it more. Images normally work out to around £1 each (depending on size) but you're free to use the images as much as you want. There are limitations in my situation as the license only grants use for one client but for a single business purchasing the license, you can use as much as you want.

    Ian - when you register, let me know and I'll dig out a discount code. These only work for the first time you register so they're no good to me. You may have to try a couple of codes but you can probably get 25% off your first lot. PM me if you want one.

    Why not take your own pic's? Simples....It's far better I think to have your own branded images than using stock photos. Takes very little time and is free :)

    This is a good example of a window cleaners site using branded images... http://jdwindowcleaningservices.co.uk/index.html

    What do you think?
