With the increasing use of the internet and the abundance of devices, people have seen almost every stock photo or are aware enough to identify a stock photo. Therefore, using a stock photo can have adverse impacts on your brands.
Firstly, it decreases trust, once a visitor finds out that your photos are taken from stock photos they will think of your content and work the same way. Your services will also be associated with the fact that you didn’t bother to use an original picture.
They'll take your company as a scam and will not scroll further. According to a study by Spectrum, the conversion rate surprisingly increases when you add original in-house pictures of your organization and use the face of YOU. People love to connect and trust those brands that display their images and then they pay attention to those photographs and try to find out more about the brand.
In conclusion, even if you get high-quality images from the stock you'll fail to establish a connection between you and your audience and those images will bring you nothing but a lower conversion rate.

The above-mentioned points add to the positive user experience. These points are the new compulsory instead of “The Fold”. If you still believe that FOLD has anything to do with it consider the following 5 points.
We live in a world where there are countless devices in every house. With people using a mobile phone, a tablet, an iPad, a laptop, or a PC to browse websites you do not have a definite size so there is no definite FOLD. Most of the devices are designed to scroll and people are intuitive to scroll. Therefore, whether the content is above the FOLD or below it, it will be read by masses if it's useful.
Cellphones and tablets are designed for scrolling and on apps like Facebook and Instagram people scroll almost all the time. Similarly while visiting a website they expect to scroll to know more. With a slight touch from the finger, a new page appears, great isn't it? And that's how modern devices work. So it's intuitive.
While telling the users your story, if you utilize only the part that is above the fold you won’t be done. An inspiring story will take more than that. So to be inspiring you have to dump the 600px above the fold concept and focus on how you can convey your story using images and copywriting at the same time.

Above the fold, the concept was used by newspaper publishers to sell the paper under the light of exciting news that is visible from the newsstand. The old idea was used on the website for no absolute reason, but now it's high time we realize the difference and dump the myth for good.
