Making Marketing Easy
IStock makes it easy for me to find exactly the right expression for my blogs and posts. The search methods help you zoom in and find the right medium for your self expression.
Pretty Pictures, But You Can’t Do Anything With Them
I used to use iStock years ago, but eventually went with Fotolia (soon to be merged into Apple Stock) because the monthly subscription was SO much more affordable. But, seeing this, I decided to investigate, only to discover it’s utterly worthless. There’s NO way to purchase images, no way to buy credits or subscriptions, and no way to check on purchased images. This is nothing but a teaser app, as you HAVE to visit their website to do ANYTHING.
If you’re interested in iStock, which I don’t recommend anyway, DON’T download the app, go directly to the webpage. Why even waste time looking when it won’t even tell you how much anything costs?
What a waste of time.
The website is better
It drives me nuts when a website is better than the app. This is an example of that. When I search in the app, I get photos and can’t seem to filter for vectors? But I search for the exact same thing on the site and I have tons of options. Also, you can only delete one photo at a time from your board. You select it, but you can’t select any others. It’s ridiculous.
