We hope you enjoyed the weekend! Here at Warmpicture we honored our veterans, who without them, we would not have the freedoms we hold so dear today. Please take the time to tell a veteran how much you appreciate their service and sacrifice.
We are excited to announce several outstanding stock photographers have joined Warmpicture. That means you now have an even larger selection of the best stock photos at any agency, now available direct from the artist.
Jane Rix and Matthew Tilghman are actively building their portfolios. And we just received commitments from Bridget McGill and Leslie Banks to join Warmpicture. Leslie is known as “Eurobanks,” and is a highly accomplished and popular stock photographer. She recently ended her exclusivity with another agency, and we are lucky to have her!
Our artists remain hard at work, creating cool new photos for your designs, articles and blogs. With all apologies to the Muppets, we think some of these new uploads are Boffo Socko!
A most timely image from Jami is this composition of women’s high heel boots and a Christmas Santa hat. This fun composition will fit a lot of holiday themed designs and blogs.
I can see this being used for gift ideas, announcing a holiday sale, promoting a Christmas party event, and more. It’s isolated on a white background to make it easy to drop into a design seamlessly.
While Christmas is almost upon us, it won’t be long before Spring Break sneaks up on us. And for those of us who don’t want to wait that long (raises hand), there is always a potential warm weather vacation waiting for us somewhere.
This is not an easy photo to capture, but Jo Ann did a great job with it. The warm, low angle light is reflected back at the girl to remove any distracting shadows. The waves are frozen to display the power of the ocean. And our subject, the girl on vacation, is rendered in sharp focus despite the action of her running. I need a vacation!
Back to holiday themes. My wife loves to bake Christmas cookies every year, and give them to our friends and neighbors. I couldn’t help but think of that when I saw Steve Cukrov’s latest stock photo of Christmas presents, cookies, and ginger bread men. Technically it looks like a ginger bread woman to me, but I’m just sayin’.
This is a wonderful holiday design. The space at the bottom of the image quickly fades toward white. Not only does this make it easy to drag and drop into a graphic design, it also gives us valuable space to work with as we see fit.
We can use our favorite photo editing software (such as Photoshop, The Gimp, or Paint Shop Pro) to expand the copy space at the bottom of the image. All we need to do is tack on some additional white space by increasing the size of the canvas. This gives us a flexible graphic design that we can work with, and add text wherever we need it.
There are plenty more new stock photos available direct from the artists at Warmpicture. Please check them out, and let us know which ones are your favorites!
