HomeReviewsThe Best Stock Photo Website: Depositphotos Review 2015

stock imagesStarting an online business is one of the BEST decisions that anyone can make during their life. If we are going to attract a new audience and potential customers and keep them interested once they visit our website, we need to also make sure our website is visually appealing with high quality and professional images.

Stock photos are not just limited to websites, but they can also be used for other things, such as images for your flyers, brochures, posters, and other advertisements for your business.

I have found that premium stock photos are more appealing than free ones. So in this review, I have chosen one of the top stock photo sites called DepositPhotos and share about my own opinions about this website.

Website: http://depositphotos.com

Rating: 8/10

Depositphotos contain stock photos, vectors, editorials, and videos that you can download to use for your own business.

On this day, I have created the below image to show you the number of stock photos, vectors, editorials, and videos that are currently available.

They have such a huge range of stocks to choose from. It’s fantastic!

depositphotosDepositphotos have a good list of categories that they store their stock so that it makes it easier for people to find what they are looking for. I also love the limited range of free stock photos for commercial use. You can read more about ‘using free images for your website’ HERE!

Depositphotos allow you to download different sizes of the image from XS to XL. This is good because we can choose how big a image we want.

Depositphotos Payment Plan

There are two main options available: 1) Supscription or 2) Pay-As-You-Go Credits

If you choose a subscription, you can download more stocks and works out to be cheaper compared to using credits.

If you know that you are going to be using lots of stock for your business, the cheapest option would be to choose a daily subscription.

For example: In the below image, for a daily subscription, you can download 5 images per day for one month. This would mean that you can download 150 images in a month for $94. So each image would have cost you $0.63.

Video Tour Of DepositPhotos

The below video from Barbra Sundquist shows you how she found appropriate stocks from depositphotos for her own projects.

You can start browsing through depositphotos now by clicking HERE!

It shouldn’t be hard to find what you are looking for. Heaps and heaps of stocks available for any niche or projects.


I would highly recommend depositphotos for anyone who are looking for high quality professional stocks for their business, whether it is for a website, or other advertising material. They are great value for money, especially with a subscription.

But those who don’t need to download so many stocks have the option of purchasing credits, which they can use for up to a year.

Thanks for reading. If you have found this review helpful, please leave comments below.


The Best Stock Photo Website: Depositphotos Review 2015 — 9 Comments

  1. I mostly use screenshot and free images on my website, but those are not good quality.
    DepositPhotos seems to have a high quality images. I would definitely consider this for my online business. Although there is a little investment involved, it is still worth it. Thanks for the honest review here :)

    • Yes, it is worth the little investment. The website is very user friendly and there is definitely a bigger variety of images to choose from.

  2. I think it has been difficult to completely know what pictures I could allow me to use for my website.
    But I have found some websites that provide excellent images away for free. beyond that I use Canva to edit my screenshot.
    But I thought here is a great alternative to the free images I usually get down on my side

    • Hi Steen, i also use canva sometimes too when I want to create my own images. But there are some nice images that I want to use sometimes for my blog posts too.

  3. I amnew to designing and evaluating websites. However, I love the appearance of this site to include that each category takes you to a list of articles to click on and read. I havent seen this before and like it right away. The review and acknowedgement of WA complaints as well as BBB rating is smart and informative and links to th e WA review itself. This website is so clean and well organized! Great example for others just getting started.

  4. Hi,
    I was just researching sites to get images from and I appreciate the review. I don’t think I’m quite able to pay 95 dollars a month but maybe some day. Having good images is a good investment for my site, I have been using free images lately and think it’s time to spend a little to get a little.

    150 images for 95 is a good deal, I don’t think I would even use that many

    How much are the credits to buy? Does it usually work out to about a dollar an image?

  5. I really like your website. It has some very good and informative articles. I hope you are getting business from it.I like the info on drop-shipping as I am looking to do that from my website as well. I see you live in Australia. I live in Canada but have many relatives in Australia. Most of my family is from New Castle. I wish great success and a Merry Christmas.
