Taking Stock of Stock Photos

What's common to a money-transfer service company and a hotel chain? Western Union and Marriott to be more specific.

Ok...besides the fact that they are large, publicly-traded, international corporations...they use the same stock photo service to get images for their web sites!

Western Union


For the little web-site I launched a while back, I bought royalty-free images for a good chunk of change. Wonder...what belt-tightening measures these corporations have incorporated that made them skimp on their images.

Next...they will be picking up free images from flickr.
