Choosing the right photos for your project is not as easy as it sounds! Consider our tips and learn how to choose the right royalty free images for your upcoming projects!</strongAs presentations continue to rise in popularity, it is always great to meet marketers or presenters opting for amazing photos over a heavy text. At the same time, it is a shame to see so many great presentations destroyed with low-quality stock photos. Choosing the right photos for your project is not as easy as it sounds and it certainly cannot be done at the last minute. If you want your project to be perfect and amaze everyone in the room, you must make an effort and find the best photo that is suitable for the text.

We have a few tips for you that can help you choose the right royalty free images for your upcoming projects: >

Find and choose photos that are text-friendly:

You surely don’t want your typography to look like it was not suitable for the picture or was put on the slide like it is non-important. You need to make an effort to pick stock photos that will provide you with a proper space (the perfect space – the left or to the right) so you can place your text appropriately. It is easy to throw money away to purchase photos, but don’t be tempted to make such purchase. There are great sources such as Pixabay, Pexels, Unsplash, Burst, Gratisography, Picjumbo and others where you can find some great royalty free images.

Natural always wins

If you have checked out some of the sources we have just mentioned, you have probably noticed that there are lots of generic stock photos, for example, a corporate handshake or a group of friends watching TV, and etc. All of these photos are generic and boring we must say. When going through royalty free images, you need to choose a photo that is in your best interest and that’s not everything. You need to choose a photo that doesn’t look unnatural, posed or fake as that will ruin the concept of your project. Remember, the more authentic the photo, the better for you and your project!

Choose for your audience

If you are going to introduce a presentation to an audience or to corporate team, you need to select photos that are corporate. If you are representing a modern, cool and hip agency, you need to find and choose photos that are cool and hip. You need to be proud of the brand you are representing and allow your photos to show your authentic voice. You need to always choose for your audience as based on the audience reaction, the success of your project will be measured.

Pursue relevance

There are a lot of stock photos that are already outdated and shouldn’t be used. You surely don’t want to be talking about your smartphone marketing strategy while presenting a photo of a flip phone. You need to pay attention to things such as technology and fashion as they are the most important indicators of up-to-date or dated stock photos.

We hope these few great tips will bring you to the best royalty free images for your upcoming projects. Remember, you can’t find a great photo in 5 minutes. You need to dedicate at least half an hour so you can make a selection and pick the best photos.
