GL Stock Images Customer Review

Review Updated: 2017

GL Stock Images (formerly Graphic Leftovers) is a fantastic stock site for many reasons. They are home to many high quality images at very reasonable prices. A while ago their website got a massive overhaul and the new design is much more user-friendly. They also added more pricing options to suit buyers. If you’ve been away from them for a couple of years, you might want to take another look.

While they don’t have a subscription option, their credit system is flexible enough that you can get images for as cheap as $1. They also pride themselves on being a ‘fair trade’ site, so contributors always get excellent commissions. As a buyer this is one site you can certainly support and feel good about. They also provide nicely curated galleries of images on all sorts of topics, so you might find some of your search work has been done for you.
