If you’ve ever made a PowerPoint, you’ll know new slide ideas can be a struggle. Finding fresh inspiration for Word docs people actually want to read can be tricky too, especially when you’re drowning in data and deadlines. Most times, it’s a race against the clock to create that compelling presentation or newsletter, and while you may have plenty to say–and the software to say it with–you know that’s just the start. You want to engage your audience, get your message across, and make your work matter. But finding the right stats, facts, and quality quotes can be a tiring task, much like the search for relevant images.

"It takes a lot of imagination to be a good photographer. You need less imagination to be a painter because you can invent things. But in photography everything is so ordinary; it takes a lot of looking before you learn to see the extraordinary." - David Bailey
