When designing a website you need to think carefully about what images you are going to use. It may be that you require a few header images to go across the main banner on your website and then possibly images of your staff, products and/or services. Using bad quality images can represent your company in the wrong way making it look unprofessional and dated.

Hiring a photographer for the day will allow you to get quality images in the corrct size and format you need for online and offline use. Taking images from Google is never a good idea as most of them are protected by copyright laws and you could find yourself in trouble for using them.

You can purchase generic images from certain stock websites but remember if you are using them to advertise a product you may need to put a note on stating that the images are for illustration purposes only.
