Yes, that’s Vince Vaughn with actors Tom Wilkinson and Dave Franco, looking ridiculous as you’d expect from any too-cheesy-for-words stock photo. In collaboration with Getty Images’ iStock, these co-stars are promoting their upcoming movie, Unfinished Business, by evoking a good chuckle with their jab at “office” stock photos..

While some stock photos do the job just fine, others serve no real purpose. Here are a few image resources, most of which are very affordable, if not free. Avoid the comedic blank slate of stock photos or collection of head-scratching images, and use these instead:

  • Canva: Amazingly simple graphic design for bloggers

  • Unsplash: Free (do whatever you want!) high-resolution stock photos

  • Getty Images: Embedded for free

  • Hubspot: 75 stock photos for free

  • Dollar Photo Club: Royalty-free stock photos and vectors for just $1

And if you can’t get enough of the “We did it!” and “Let’s fold our arms and look like we mean business” pics of Vince Vaughn & Co., you can download them all for free here.
