These websites can be used to find those crisp, rich photos you’re longing for. Stock photos can be found online at websites such as iStock Photo, Stock Exchange, and Dreamstime, Fotolia, Shutterstock, and BigStockPhoto. When you go to these websites, you can either search for specific images using keywords or search through categories such as abstract, animals, landscapes, nature, objects, places, and more.
