So I want to purchase a graphic or two possibly to make my shower thank you cards, rehersal dinner invites and other things. So I signed up and began looking around – my issue is everything is sold in credits?
How much is a credit. I looked all over and coulnd’t find any explanation to what this meant and I don’t want to commit to buy something when I don’t really know how much it is. What was more confusing was I thought that you paid based on the size image you wanted (larger = more $$)

go to store/buy credits and then the download credits link. It’s 10 credits for $13, 26 for $33 and 55 for $67….etc.
If you google isctockphoto credits, you should be able to use the coupons for 3 free credits (per account) or a % discount off your purchase.
Good luck finding something you like for 3 credits though.

Yeah, the credits aren’t crazy expensive and you should be able to get the 3 free as sweetart mentioned. I also was able to play a "photo hunt" game that gave me some free credits. I am trying to load it up right now (http://www.istockphoto.com/hunt) but it doesn’t seem to be loading, so the promotion might be over.
More complex images cost more credits. Most images that I was considering were around 6 or 7 credits, I think, but there were some simple ones for 3.
