Adobe Captivate

While you or your organisation might subscribe to one or several online image libraries such as Getty Images, iStock Photo or even Adobe’s own photo library, in this post I’d like to highlight three low-cost (or even free) photo resources that let you search for and access photos instantly.

Profile Photos

Tony Karrer

I received a response that I didn't expect on my post Profile Photo. In that post, I suggested that you should always add a profile photo: Don't join that new Ning group without attaching your photo. Because profile photos help me: Believe that you are a real person and begin to connect with you. I also suggested that for business networking: Don't use anything other that photorealistic photos. I'm running into you on a business networking site.

My guess is that about 25% of the people I run into do not have a profile photo. It doesn't take a lot to add a profile photo, and it's fairly significant. But if you are an unknown from cyberspace with no photo, it just doesn't feel as real.
