    Hi there. Forgive me for not knowing where to go. I would like to make an ad ASAP and I need a specific photo to use in the ad.

    I do direct sales and we just got pet products. I want an Ad for my FB business page, and I just need a photo of a dog getting a bath (preferably outside vs. indoors/salon, and also prefer with a kid/s).

    Any help with this is greatly appreciated!



    [Edit:]

    I am looking around the forums still and want to get ahead of some of your questions.

    I am simply a Mom that just went back to work, and for the last couple of years, have been an independent consultant for a direct sales company.

    I just want to post an Ad, lets say, 5-10 times as a facebook post. Not a cover photo or for print or blog. I will be adding Text on it, don't know a time frame for when these 5-10 posts will take place, and would definitely keep the owner of the photo up to date/in the know.

    Being a small business, I appreciate small business, and would just rather not go to a 'walmart' stock photo site.

    Potential repeat business of the same nature.


    Thank you.

    Finding a stock photo that meets your requirements might be the easy part. Entering into a contract for use of the photo might be the deal killer.

    Why not make your own photograph? Then you actually own it. Any camera would do, even a smart phone. You can get photo editing apps cheap or free, to straighten and crop the photograph.

    I don't have a dog and was hoping to get my hands on a photo today even. I want something that looks really good, rather than what I am capable of with my smartphone.

    Naturally you want a good photograph, that is understandable, but the cost of getting the publishing rights (and it's usually only for a limited time) will be expensive. I was trying to help you save money.

    ISTOCKPHOTO will have what you need. Will come with a license to use it.

    Lots of cute pics of dogs betting bathed. quickly found one with a child in it. They are a lot more reasonable than I had assumed. Only $12 for this one. Here is an extreme crop to give you an idea.


    Please do not post images to which you do not hold rights. You may post links.
