It’s been a while since we have put out an image request update but lately, a number of image buyers have been downloading and asking us for more images of elderly people, seniors and grandparents doing everyday things. The range of activities that these mature adults could be doing include working out, dating, eating, playing with younger kids, routine medical check-ups or any type of activity that takes place on a normal day. To give you an idea for what types of images we have of elderly people doing everyday things take a look at these elderly people photo lightboxes. We thank you for your support and uploads.
After giving thanks to all the deserving Moms last month on Mother’s day, it’s now the Dads turn to shine on Father’s Day.

It is celebrated on the third Sunday of June in many countries and on other days elsewhere. It complements Mother’s Day, the celebration honoring mothers. How will you be giving thanks and celebrating Father’s day 2011?

Image buyers needed speed. They needed a top notch but simple to use image search. And they need great royalty free images at affordable prices.

As always, browsing by image categories or searching by keywords on Cutcaster is completely free and you don’t need to sign-up. When a user searches with keywords, they can then filter their search options by: categories, colors, contributor’s name, vertical or horizontal orientation, picture resolution, price, relevance and image format — including jpeg and/or vector files. The moment a user finds an image that meets their needs, they can further refine their selection from the “Similar Pictures” filter or by choosing another image from the same cluster of images. Picture buyers can immediately purchase images with any major credit card or use site credits to download the images, which comes with a record of it’s metadata.

Collection of lightboxes with hundreds of images to choose from.
* JPEG (Joint Photographics Experts Group) – pronounced ‘jaypeg’ and you will sometimes see it shortened to just JPG. This format is ‘lossy’ in that the more you compress the image and thus reduce file size, the greater you will lose clarity and detail. JPEG graphics can render in full colour and are ideally suited to the display of photographs.
* GIF (Graphics Interchange Format) is ‘lossless’ in that the compression process does not involve sacrificing quality. GIF graphics are limited to 256 colours, which is fine for computer graphics with hard edges and block colours, but not so good for photos. They can also have a transparent background, which can be useful if you want to display your images in anything other than a simple rectangular arrangement.
* PNG (Portable Network Graphics) – pronounced ‘ping’ – is another ‘lossless’ format but is not restricted in colour rendition, making it a superior format to GIF. PNGs are ideal for computer-generated graphics such as buttons, logos, diagrams and maps, but are less suited to photographs, where the resulting file size is likely to be excessive. Be a little careful, because not all online applications – or corporate forewalls – support PNG.
