I downloaded the new version of Everweb in order to access the stock photos. The youtube video directed to go to the dropdown menu to select stock images. There is not a row of optional dropdown menus on my Everweb program. Please advise how I can access them. Thank you.

Thanks for the post. First check that you are using the new version of EverWeb. On the first screen you see (the Projects Window) you should see the version number, EverWeb version 2.7 build 1980. Alternatively when you have opened your project, go to the EverWeb-> About menu which should again show the version as 2.7, build 1980. It may be that you inadvertently launched an older version. Once you have 2.7 launched and your website project open, go to the Window menu. stock Phots hound be on there after Media…
Hope that helps.

I did not realize that by downloading your update that I would have to pay another $50. the pop up noted that I could download the older version.
How do I do that?

You can always redownload the last version you had before your support and update license expired. The way to do this is to go to your Client Area (https://billing.ragesw.com/clientarea.php)
From there, go to the menu and select Services-> My Services
Double Click on the service that you originally purchased, then on the next screen click on Downloads to access the versions of EverWeb that you can redownload.
Hope that helps!
