I run some dating campaigns for a FB advertising agency where I have to be really careful that I own the images I use.
Anyone have any good sources for facebook dating images that are legit?
I know there are few people who sell dating image packs but I am sure they just scrape them off the web.
I have had some luck with stock images website but for the most their images are too professional looking.
I have looked at flickr but from what I can tell the creative commons license requires you to cite the author when using the images.
I have also looked at google images but I think most of the images there that are approved for commercial use are mislabeled or copied from somewhere else.
I have heard of people use fiverr but that does not seem like it would scale very much.
I feel like there most be a source i am missing.
Living in Prague I might just be better spending a day taking pictures of all the beautiful women walking around.
Ive actually heard of people posting ads on craigslist saying looking for models. Then you pay them and take pictures and use them in dating ads
Can’t reveal my source or we would all be using the same images! However, what’s worked for me is contacting photographers selling content for ex gf porn sites and asking if they can sell me a selection of their clothed images. These are normally pretty cheap as none of their other customers are interested in the clothed images. They tend to want to sell in bulk so be prepared to spend a few hundred dollars per order for a good selection of different women. But with all the regs surrounding porn sites you can be pretty sure that the photos are legit if you approach a photographer with an established reputation.
I just grab pictures from girls from 3rd world type countries off hi5.com Pretty sure they aren’t going to start complaining with what I do with them back in the States but if I was single I would totally use "models"… infact it coul be a great pick up line.
lol @ ‘Living in Prague I might just be better spending a day taking pictures of all the beautiful women walking around. ‘
Or you could contact some girls you know from highschool/college and pay them for their pics from their younger days lol
I use flickr, tagged.com, friendster.com, and my favorite:dailybooth
for legal amateur looking i bought sexy self taken pics on fiverr.com with signed model rights(the same photographer sells packages on warriorforum too i was told)……for questionable amatuer sexy photos a great source is hotornot.com because you can see what people are all rating/voting as best shots,etc…and you can target ages ranges on there….probably not legit but those people put them on there for the public to rate them so oh well
Also, check your images with a reverse image searcher like www.tineye.com. Celebs can and will bring legal action to your doorstep if you use their images without consent.
What about istockphoto.com?
filter by age/sex/location/looks/religion/ethnicity/etc
search like this:
yeah.. not legit. but… boobies!
found a post with the following sites. May find some images useful for dating or other niches
The problem with all the stock photos is the images all look too "professional" which doesnt do well for dating. People want to see girls that look like real girls taking pics using their phones in the mirror, not someone who had pro makeup lighting and equipment.
Google Images has a new feature where you can upload/paste an image URL and it will perform a reverse image search (click on the blue Camera icon in the Google Image search bar). If you paste a picture of a girl, Google will spit out websites containing that image. More importantly, many of these websites contain sets of other amateur self-shots, so you can easily grab more pics just by doing a reverse-image search on 1 pic.
I seem to get a lot of celebrities/well known people with google images. Hopefully my custom picture scraper will be done shortly. Mediaspider looks to be an interesting piece of free software.
i found a decent new image directory that doesnt require attribution at all https://www.morguefile.com/
There is scrape box and that has a image grabber plug-in. Better yet is to get a custom picture scraper built to scrape images. That’s what I did and saves a bunch of time.
Hey I learned something from your search string. That is awesome. Never thought of that before.
YOU LIVE IN PRAGUE?! Take pics of the czech girls there! If you can’t get their image at least get their phone number.
If you want legit there is an adult webmaster forum called "gofuckyourself" There are photographers in there willing to sell clothed photos (as well as naughty ones if you’re into adult dating).
