Hi Hal.

I have used Hemera's photo collections on DVD in the past, but they have
moved out of that market and into online (and more expensive, I think)
photo libraries. One problem with these 'professional' collections,
though, is that often the images are *too* attractive. I had a whole
room of make developers designing for a particular persona with their
motivation being that they wanted to date her<g>. This may be one way of
getting empathy into the process, but I am not sure it is the best
