Twitter ButtonDo you have several empty advert spaces? Use Twitter? Why don’t you fill one advert space with an advert for your Twitter page?

Now there are loads of different Twitter logos, and I’m sure I could have come up with a slightly better design, but for now, this quick button will fill one of my advert spaces and promote my own Twitter page.

The button is free and can be downloaded here:

Where to find free images and pictures for your 125×125 Advert

Creating your own 125×125 advert artwork from scratch is great, but sometimes you just need an image quick — and preferably it needs to be free — but where can you find quality royalty free images and photos fast?

Although there are now hundreds of such websites, I tend to gravitate towards two, Stock Xchng and Fotolia. Both offer royalty free images and also have very reasonably priced pro images that can be bought for only a few pence/cents.

Bare in mind that some images may have restrictions, but you should find that you can usually contact the owner and get permission to use the images for almost anything — be it personal or commercial work.

Reader Feedback: Do you use royalty free images in your adverts or on your website?
If yes, what sites do you use and why?
