'ZDNET Recommends': What exactly does it mean?

ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.

When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNET nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.

ZDNET's editorial team writes on behalf of you, our reader. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information and the most knowledgeable advice possible in order to help you make smarter buying decisions on tech gear and a wide array of products and services. Our editors thoroughly review and fact-check every article to ensure that our content meets the highest standards. If we have made an error or published misleading information, we will correct or clarify the article. If you see inaccuracies in our content, please report the mistake via this form.

And new users can get a Scopio Authentic Stock Photography: Unlimited Lifetime Subscription for just $29 until May 31.

As the title indicates, the deal includes access to an unlimited number of images for a lifetime.

That means your chosen images can be used for all different types of projects, including advertising, merchandise, websites, social media, and more.

Scopio has over 700,000 completely royalty-free images that were taken by more than 14,000 photographers in over 150 countries -- with more added all the time. The company imposes none of the restrictions found in the existing stock photography marketplaces, so photographers can profit more from their images. AI algorithm bias is simultaneously addressed by the technology used to democratize their contributions.

This practice has generated a library for Scopio with no redundant or posed imagery, so you won't be seeing your chosen images all over the web. Instead, you'll have the satisfaction of knowing you're helping artists worldwide advance their careers. And you can actually search for and hire your favorite photographers for all your video and image needs.

Unlike other marketplaces, Scopio lets you filter your artist searches by location, gender, and ethnicity. So you'll not only get more specific images for your projects, but you'll help change stereotypes through imagery as new content gets amplified.

A female-founded business, Scopio has been featured by major outlets, such as CNN, for its successful efforts to change the face of the internet and pay artists around the world.

Everyone seeking more original images for creative messaging benefits from their pursuit of diversity. Get your Scopio Authentic Stock Photography: Unlimited Lifetime Subscription before May 31 for just $29.
