Stock photos can make your life easier by saving you tons of time, but knowing how to use them and reuse them properly can also save you tons of money! You could stick to purchasing and downloading handfuls of stock photos for just a single time use, but we think you’re better off maximizing what you’ve got so you can save some moolah. Sound good? We’re covering all the ways you can customize your stock photos so you can use what you’ve got to their full potential. Let’s get resourceful!
No matter what type of image you have, you can always find a new way of looking at it just by cropping it. Try choosing different corners or sections to zoom and crop into. You can potentially get 4+ new images from one single stock photo just by utilizing the crop tool.
FLIp and/or ROTATE
Speaking of new ways of looking at your photos, try a different angle! Get fancy and flip them horizontally or rotate them for a new viewpoint. You can even take it a step further and apply these to your cropped sections for even more options!
ADD TO IT
Try adding to your stock photos by overlaying colors, effects, text, graphics, and/or images for a more custom look. This is great for Pinterest pins, product covers, social media images, blog images, web banners, mock-ups, and more.
