Just have a question relating downloading photos and for commercial websites. Is it ok to use photos from Istockphoto on major commercial websites, if I purchase an account for the company? I read the faqs but really want to make sure I got it right.
And if I design a website for someone (who is paying for it), I can use the images on their site, if I've purchased them on my own account.
Apologies for asking a stupid question...

Well, thats the whole idea of royalty free stock photography. If your using it on a website, it must be max size of 640x480 (I think, its written specifically in the terms and conditions of downloading the image).
As long as your not re-selling the image or passing it off as your own work - as in the website might be a photography website and gives people the impression that your company took the photo, etc.
I could be wrong but thats the whole idea of stock.

Yes commerical sites are welcome, recently there was a posting in the In Action showing one on an IBM site.
I'm sure your clients and you will love the quality and prices.
Also, selling templates with istock images is a big no-no. I know that's not what you asked but it's nice to mention it.

Great thanks for that, pretty much just wanted to make sure that I had it right and couldn't get in trouble!
Thanks for confirming!
