Stop Using Cheesy Stock Photos

Stop Using Cheesy Stock Photos (Please!)

One of my biggest pet peeves EVER is the use of cheesy stock photos in website and marketing design today. Who is paying for this crap? Or maybe the better question is who in the hell is making it? Is this stuff really the best you got?  Here’s a small collection of some of the worst, cheesy stock photos you can buy online.
