I use photos all the time in my business. I post them to my blog, upload them to social media, and even include them with client projects (because sometimes, you want a content marketer who can help you out with both your content and your graphics).
My go-to sources for photos are Unsplash, Pexels, and Pixabay. These are websites where photographers share their work under CC0 license. That means most of the images on these sites are free to use or modify. Yep, even for commercial use.
But sometimes, I need a really specific picture or I don’t have a lot of time to spend on searching every free site. On those days, I use Deposit Photos.
On Deposit Photos, I can find millions of images with just a click or two. The only problem is that stock photos can get expensive. I’ve paid as much as $10 for a tiny image to use on my blog or in my social media.
That’s why I loved discovering this photo deal from App Sumo. You can get 100 image downloads from Deposit Photos for just $39. That’s 100 downloads even if you choose the highest resolution images (no paying $10 just for one measly picture).
Here’s how it works:
- You pay App Sumo $39.
- You get sent an email with a special code.
- You enter your special code on Deposit Photos (you’ll need an account if you don’t have one already).
That’s it! Once you enter your code, you’ll get 100 download credits. These credits will never expire so you can simply leave them in your account until you need your next image.
I was kind of nervous the first time I grabbed this sale. I was afraid it was too good to be true – but once I got my code and started poking around, I realized it was in fact legit. It’s definitely been one of my smarter business investments and that’s why I wanted to share it with you. 😀
And yes, if you use a LOT of stock images, you can change the quantity. I know people who buy several hundred credits at once.
All you have to do is change the quantity from ‘1’ to whatever you prefer (I think it goes all the way up to 99). Perfect if you create graphics for clients or you need more photos for your own products.

PS: That photo above? It’s a stock image from Deposit Photos that I grabbed and added text to using PicMonkey.
