Need A Stock Image For One Dollar? Try Dollar Photo Club

Stock photography is photography that is sold, or in some cases even given out for free, for commercial use. It is different from assignment photography (read: photo shoot) because it is not tailor-made for a client or the purchaser’s expectations. Stock photography is mainly bought and used by people like publishers of magazines and books, ad agencies, bloggers, website owners, calendar and greeting card companies, etc.

Stock images are usually cheap, offer a large library of photos to choose from and offer the unique advantage of being readily available.

There are many stock photo agencies available online. Out of them we recommend you use Dollar Photo Club.

Dollar Photo Club offers all its images for a single dollar. There is no red tape and no hidden costs. Unlike other stock websites which have cumbersome and complicated methods to calculate the cost of an image – adding a credit here and removing a credit there – Dollar Photo Club’s price is straightforward. Pay one dollar and download one image. As simple as that.

They provide two membership plans.

One costs $10 and is on a monthly basis. You can download ten images per month with this plan.

The other plan will cost you $99 and is on a yearly basis. You can download 99 images with this plan for a one year period.

If you need more images you can always buy them at the rate of $1 per image.

The website’s navigation is quite easy and straightforward.

When I went on the home page and entered the keyword “nature” in the search bar I was shown three options to choose from, as the screenshot below shows.


I checked all three i.e. Photos, Illustrations and Vectors, and hit “Search.”

The site returned me 3,540,849 results. Quite impressive.


Now of course it is very difficult to surf through more than 3.5 million results and find what I am looking for, but I didn’t need to worry as Dollar Photo Club had me covered. They give you lots of options to narrow down your search results.

First of all, the small square icons below the words “Search Results” give you the option to choose how you want the results to be displayed.

Then you can choose the images which have been most recently uploaded on the site, or the most relevant results related to your search query, or you can choose to see only those results which have been downloaded the most, or the most popular results, etc.

The left-sidebar also has many options to narrow down a search. You can choose to exclude certain types of images from your results. For example, suppose I am looking for nature-based images but I don’t want any pictures of hills or mountains to appear, I can write “mountains,” “hills,” etc. in the Exclude box and those results will be omitted from my search results.

I can even choose the color which I want in the results. Suppose I am a fan of red, then I can select the color red out of the rainbow of colors from the sidebar (not shown in the image above) and results will be displayed containing the red color.

Go and check out the website. Try out all these features for yourself and then drop in a comment below telling me what you think of the site.
