    Often you dont know exactly what photo your looking for till you see it, sometimes that happens by accident.

    What techniques do you use to help you find the correct image, or do you just stumble across it?

    Do you think having input from other designers and photographers would help speed this process up?

    well this will work.
    because when you will change the designers then few good results may pop.
    but its just a risk may be some bad one appear and you agin think that i should use new one.
    what you think about it?

    I often rely on Google Image search - I can find images there from the paid sites I use and it's quicker than logging in to the sites one at a time and searching them. I find it gives better results as well, probably due to a better search algorithm.
    Once I find an image or images I want to use, then I go to the site and purchase it. It's easy to tell which images are from which sites - even if the watermark isn't clearly visible, the URL is right there.

    I have had input from other designers, but it was mainly to point me to paid sites I already knew about. What would be really useful would be to have some input from photographers, but I haven't found any yet who want to deal directly with me for anything comparable to the prices I can get from 123.rf, shutterstock, fotolia, etc.
    I'm willing to pay for custom work but I can't afford $150 for a 1-hour shoot, which is the lowest I've been offered so far.

    It all depends on the project/website you're working on, I've never used the same process twice, but that's just me... Most of my web based projects I get the site owners to find images that they would like included ( I really encourage the site owners to take ownership in the project and be involved in the process as much as possible ), that being said, I have had clients that just didn't have time or resources to be involved...

    Invest in a good but not over the top digital camera, take some photos yourself ( it's really not that difficult )... So how do the "professionals" get such great photos? Yes they have an eye for it "composing the shot", but there are many more out there that compensate for this lack of "natural vision", with taking tons and tons of pictures from different angles, different lighting, etc...

    Not to insult any photographers out there, but since the digital movement... there are a lot of so called "professional" photographers out there that could never have made it in that industry back when they had to actually pay to process it before they realized the photo was really not that great...
