We have been looking for a web designer to take on a challenging custom build project for a long time. After being rejected by several other companies due to the complexibility of the build we were super lucky to finally have found Sarah from Webwise. Sarah was extremely good to work with as she actually listened to our needs and what we would like to achieve with our new website in regards to design and the custom personalisation part of our products. No challenge was to much for Sarah and the team and the outcome exceeded our expectation by far! The whole process was very organised and the communication could have not been any better. We can highly recommend Webwise to anyone with full confident you are in good hands. We are very thankful and looking forward to work with Webwise again in the near more

I have dealt with Sarah now for all my hosting and website requirements for the last few years and she has always delivered great ideas and designed fantastic websites. I know the most difficult thing with my business is I am so busy and don’t have time to do the research. With Sarah I gave her my ideas verbally and some competitors in the area and she did the rest coming up with a great modern designed website. I would have no hesitation in recommending webwise for anyone looking for a great modern and affordable website. Keep up the good work!!read more

25 Aug Where to get great imagery for your website

A picture paints a thousands words, or so the old adage goes.

Images can tell a story in a quick glimpse more than endless paragraphs on a page. This is even up by data that shows 90 per cent of information transmitted to the brain is visual, and visuals are processed 60,000 times faster in the brain than text.

Online, visuals are even more important. Research has found 46 per cent of people say a website’s design is the number one criterion for discerning the credibility of a company.


They create an emotional connection and gain user confidence.

We can assist in advising you what will work best for your brand and your budget.

We have photographers on hand that can take professional photos of you, your staff, your products, office, venue etc….

There is also so many great resources available to get stock images if you are looking for more generic imagery.

IM Free

IM FREE  is a free resource from IM Creator and the images are free for you to use under the Creative Commons license.  We really like a lot of the photos here as they give a sense of realism and authenticity.  IM Free categorizes the images by collections / categories, such as ambient, arts & music, business, black & white, cityscape, education, fashion & beauty, foods & drinks, inspirations, lifestyles, nature, occupations, people, technology, etc.

picjumbo – Totally free images for commercial and personal works



professional image for websites - getty images

Getty Images has a very big selection of paid images with over 24 million in their database.  Amongst all the paid images provider, we like Getty the most.  They’re not the cheapest, but that’s for good reasons as their images are very commercial (meaning they work very well for all kinds of businesses).





Istock – Reasonably priced, Millions of royalty free images – One of the largest stock imagery sites – Run by Getty but prices much more reasonable.

Dreamstime – The worlds largest selection of images – Reasonably priced

123RF – Very reasonably priced.


professional image for websites - shutterstock








Shutterstock has one of the largest and most comprehensive collections of photo, icon and vector images (over 28 million).  They offer package deals and also monthly subscriptions so that you can download as many images as you like during the subscription period. A drawback of Shutterstock is that some images are priced on the premium end.  However, they do offer one of the best quality images that are exclusive to them, so in our mind, this definitely helps justify their pricing.
