Whether you're a blogger or not, sometimes you need a great picture. This is tough if you're a less-than-amateur photographer, or don't even happen to know where your camera currently is (as in my case). So...what to do?
Well, there's the ol' photobooth on your laptop, though it does look silly when you lug out your computer to take a photo.
You could use a drawing program and sketch some kind of illustration. I was never really good with an Etch-A-Sketch, though, so it's better for me to just round up a preschooler than to try to use one of those kinds of computer dealios.
The best option, and the one I use most often, is to visit a royalty-free website and swipe someone else's photo (with their permission, of course). Next time you're in the market for a free photo to use for a blog, an invitation, or merely for a cool bit of art to hang on your wall, check out these free image sites.
I hear voices. Loud. Incessant. And very real. Which basically gives me two options: choke back massive amounts of Prozac or write fiction. I chose the latter. Way cheaper. I've been writing since I discovered blank wall space and Crayolas. I seek to glorify God in all that I write...except for that graffiti phase I went through as a teenager. Oops. Did I say that out loud?
