Affordable Book/Website Illustrations

If you’re a self-publishing author, or you simply want illustrations for your website or pdf, check out this site.

Any illustrations you commission come with full rights, meaning they cannot be reused by the artists and you do not have to ask permission to reuse them yourself.

This means your illustrations can pull double duty, not only making your book more valuable but also appearing on other merchandise you sell.

Illustrations start at just $45 each with $0 royalties and no hidden costs. And the examples are gorgeous.

How to Add Original Artistic Images to Your Site for Free

Use the Google Arts and Culture app to turn your photos into works of art. A new feature called, “Art Transfer” that lets you apply various art styles to your own photos have been added to the app.

To use the Art Transfer feature:

  • Open the Google Arts and Culture app
  • Tap the Camera icon in the bottom-center
  • Click Art Transfer
  • Either take a new photo or choose one from your current photos
  • Choose an art style to apply to your photo.

For example, that landscape photo you took could become a bold, swirling Vincent van Gogh-like painting.

Secondly, things are changing fast. What worked last month might not work this month, so continually be testing and adapt your approach as necessary.
