    Presenting website design options to the client

    Hello,

    My question is how to use images when designing a new website and presenting it to a client without purchasing them?
    Do you just show it with the store's name stamped on it and then if they approve, you purchase them or do you always purchase them first?

    I'm a developer, but I don't. I put a black square where a photo would go, let them know where they can get stock images and how much they cost, and then suggest that a good digital camera costs $100-$150 and they can use it for whatever purposes they like besides just the website...brochures, truck signage, store signage, PDFs, Word docs, other marketing materials, etc.

    The camera always wins.

    Most stock photography sites allow you to download what are known as "comps" they are there for this exact purpose. You would choose the photos and add up the costs to buy them out right. Then show the client the site and explain that the photos cost X amount of money.

    I prefer to add it into my quote. This is why a good brief is always beneficial. You can guess at how many photos you would need and at costs and add that into the quote you give a client.

    Like theGame has mentioned a camera is a great tool. Not just for clients but designers as well. I have a decent DSLR that i use whenever possible. You don't even need a DSLR though you could do just as well with a modest priced (the $100-$150 Game brought up) point and shoot digital camera.
