    How could I get pictures of an iMac that I could use on a website? Does anyone have an idea?

    If you or someone you know owns one, you could just take pictures of it. Otherwise, try looking at some royalty-free stock photo websites.

    We have the computers but I don't have the talent to get a picture of an iMac that looks like it's floating in a white background :eek:

    istockphoto.com has some good illustrations and photos of Macs and mac-styled computers. That may be someplace to start.

    Take it against a single-color background - use a well-lit cardboard box or white wall, or something. It'll make it easier to use Photoshop or something similar to cut out the background and paste the iMac onto whatever background (or transparent background) you like.

    Doesn't Apple supply people with images to promote their products, journalists, etc...?

    Yes, but I imagine those retailers pay Apple some sort of fee to use their official images.

    They might, but I doubt they do it for free.

    Again I'm not sure about the use of these on say a commercial website but for the press there's usually press images available by most companies.

    Apples are here
