I work in advertising/graphic design and use stock photos often for all types of projects. Sometimes, while an idea is fresh in my mind (and I’m not in front of my computer), I like to see what’s available in the way of stock images. Thanks to Corbis, their mobile site allows you to quickly do a search through their images right from your BlackBerry device.
Now keep in mind that this mobile website was really designed for the iPhone (see screen shot to right). Because I am using the Blackberry Bold, it didn’t quite appear this way for me. However, the search itself worked fine (for me anyway) and was fairly easy to use and quick in response.
Once you find the image, and you want to keep it handy, you can opt to download the picture to your phone. I played with the site myself a bit and the images are made for mobile so don’t expect anything really large, however they didn’t seem to have watermarks so I was able to download some images and use as wallpaper on my phone.
