How to Find the Best Stock Photos for Your Brand

How to Find the Best Stock Photos for Your Brand

Finding the perfect stock photos for your brand can be, well, a drag. When you Google “stock photos,” we’re betting the selection you find doesn’t exactly light you up. Instead, many stock photos feel corny, fake, and don’t quite fit the needs of small online business owners like yourself. 

In fact, the stock photos we’ve known for the past few decades give us a lot of reasons not to use them. But that doesn’t quite solve the problem, does it?

Because the reality is most online business owners and entrepreneurs aren’t able to shell out thousands of dollars for professional photoshoots or bring on a personal photographer. Which is exactly why you still need high-quality, on-brand, affordable stock photos that actually look good. 

So, how do you find the best stock photos for your brand? Through Styled Stock Society, of course. And we’re breaking down how to navigate our library of thousands of collections and stock photos, so you can find the best ones for your business and brand. 

Sort by category

One of the easiest ways to find the stock photos you need is to sort by category. When you log into our member library, you can select from our dozens of categories – like workspace images, wellness images, or whichever category is relevant to what you need (when you need it).

If you’re not a member, use a category in your search, such as “desktop stock photos,” or “flatlays of office supplies.” Just make sure you’re finding these images from verified stock photos sites, not just using anything you pull from Google. That’s copyright infringement!

Use filters

When it comes to any website – especially a library of stock images – filters are your best friend. Inside the Styled Stock Society membership, you can use filters to search for more specific stock photos. Even down to super-refined details, like:

  • Color
  • Image orientation
  • Photos or videos
  • Types of mockups
  • Background colors + textures
  • With people
  • Without people
  • And more!

Search for keywords

Just like a search engine, our robust library contains tons of keywords to help you find what you’re looking for quickly. Maybe you’re looking for coffee shop images or meditation stock photos – whatever you want to explore, simply type it in! All you have to do is use our search box to see photo and video results that match.

Pro tip: If you search for something and can’t find the results you’re looking for, let us know! We want to curate our stock photos for your needs, so we’re always open to feedback from our members. And if there’s a demand for specific stock photos, we’ll work to make it happen.

Download full collections

If you’re looking to download a cohesive set of images, we’ve got you covered there, too. Instead of searching through individual photos, you can download entire collections! Most of our collections contain anywhere from 25 to 35 photos, so you can feel confident you’re downloading a variety of images that fit the exact category, look, and feel you want. 

When you’re inside the member library, simply hit “view all collections” to download entire collections!
