How to Use Stock Photos on PosterMyWall [Examples Inside]

If you are part of the graphic design team of any business, startup or brand, you understand that stock photos are a necessity. Not everyone has the resources or skills to become a master photographer, or maybe there are just not enough hours in the day to take opportunity of the golden hour.

Luckily, there are a variety of online sites dedicated to making this task simpler for you, and you can buy high quality images from them, to use for your advertisements.

PosterMyWall has an integrated system which allows you to use stock photos, via Flickr, Getty Images and Pixabay, directly from the Poster Maker. Flickr and Pixabay images are free to use. Getty Images requires a small fee when used. 
Recommended: Instead of downloading the free version, purchase the Photo Quality Download or the Poster Quality Download. The free version contains a large watermark, which may not look pretty on your final product - especially when using professional stock images.
