    Ingimage is a great place to find images, high quality and a massive range. I've been using them for a long time. They also have a free trial so even better! :) This is their website, check them out: http://www.ingimage.com/?refcode=efl

    Cool! Thanks for the great info. I really like your article and the collection. I've been using some of these collection before but since I found Kozzi.com. I've started to like their free photos and images and that's what I'm using right now for my blog.

    Wow ! You have explained all the important things in very few words. Actually, most bloggers don't understand the License attributions linked with a photo downloading(such as, Creative Commons, royalty free, etc) Thanks for sharing this valuable info!!

    I have three sites to recommend that have hundreds of free images: 1) karenswhimsy.com/public-domain-images 2) ushistoryimages.com 3) christianimagesource.com

    I think www.123rf.com is good. Not a free resource but it's pretty cheap.. you can get like $1 per image. All their images look great and they have variety.

    Good resources, but some of them are not valid any more. Anyway, thank you very much.

    You can find most of the sites mentioned here (the ones which are still active) and about 200 others (about half a billion free stock images in total) with my new firefox addon: http://addons.mozilla.orgen-USfirefoxaddon219720

    There are only 3 or 4 websites with non licence. Does someone found any websites without licence?

    Can't believe I haven't found this site before. Spent an hour or more yesterday exploring just a handful of the sites. Obviously it's a mixed bag and some sites will be more useful for most than others, but I found plenty to make me confident of being able to find good images for my blogs. I appreciate particularly the details in the site by site summaries, which indicate special conditions, such as the requirement of some sites for link backs (with which, I hasten to add), I have no problem). Excellent resource - thank you for all the work that has gone into putting it together.

    Pictures are always a big problem to me. I know that there are many beautiful pictures on istockphoto,but they are two expensive. I also know stock.xchng. But many pictures on this site are too small. Anyone knows whether there are any other places to get good pictures?

    stock photography and vectors

    Interesting writeup and very helpful. You had some ones in there that I had never heard of but thought they were pretty good after checking them out. One warning I would say is always try to make sure that it is the copyright holder who has uplaoded the image and not someone who may appear to have stolen the image and then uploaded it. I’d also love it if you reviewed and added our site, http:www.cutcaster.com to your list. we are a new source of user generated photos and vectors that can be licensed royalty free and we set up our marketplace to be like the Nasdaw stock exchange. Stock Market — Stock licensing. Search http:www.cutcaster.com for royalty free photos, stock images, stock illustrations, clipart, vectors and free stock photography for advertising, publishing or web design. Download and find free stock photos and vectors for secure use in printing brochures, advertising, annual reports and electronic use on websites and presentations.

    Well really a nice collection of resources for free imagery. But remeber that for a personalized job you need to hire a photographer.

    Hey findcollegecards, sure you can use royalty free images without incurring in any legal trouble. Just make sure you specify whre you have taken the picture from and provide credit and link back to the author or source.

    I have used one viable alternative to do it your self vectors, a site called imagetovector.com create the vectors handmade for you. I am sure we all know about the problems associated with auto-trace - these people actually create handmade vectors. They seem to return the job quickly in my experience and also the pricing is very reasonable. I have used them for vector illustrations and flash - though they also claim to offer services for wireframe vectors (for use in CAD, t-shirt printing and signmaking etc).

There is also an image request service (which I haven't used yet), but I did find what I'd spent ages looking for (sadly not taken by my friend though!).

    While I think that Iphoto would be a good choice, it could be said that shutterpoint would take the cake with variety. You will find that most if not all of these outfits will not allow people to merely take these pics without some sort of compensation. Still looking for a library that is not only free, but extremely comprehensive. Take Care, B. http://loan.valueprep.com

    If you are looking for selection and low prices, I recommend http://www.shutterpoint.com

    Andrew Challen

    These are nice, I've found some of these before, what I've always struggled to find however is illustrations for free in vector format or large bitmaps. All i can find is very small horrible gifs.






    2005-07-07 10:56:01

    kemie

    While not free, i would also mention istockphoto, which has professional quality images starting at $1. The peace of mind of knowing you have quality photos with absolutely no copyright or licencing problems is worth the small price






    2005-06-20 23:02:39

    ilan wosque

    Great site , true hi-resolution stock images for free. www.realimagebank.com






    2005-06-17 06:58:13

    Excellent stop. Just bookmarked.

    YotoPhoto.com allows you to search most of the above sites (plus wikipedia) at once from a single interface. Over 50,000 free images are currently in the index. -M

    Nadia

    Hi, you can find really dirt cheap stock photography at www.shuttermap.com as well for under $5... all high res. Most of their images are from Asia, and they have a unique vision which is Framing the World through images!

    This is an awesome list of sites, thanks! I doubt the answer is 'yes,' being that these two sites are not free, but I'll shoot anyway -- has anyone tried either of these 2MB stock photo subscription sites? comstock1700k ($799, 6 months, 25,000 images) photos to go unlimited ($99, 6 months, 55,000 images) They advertise 25,000 and 55,000 photos, respectively...seems a good deal (though not free!) Anyone have experience with either? Or know of any other "lo res" subscription sites?

    Another great site here: http://www.ixuz.com

    I've used freedigitalphotos.net a few times. Completely free stock photography

    This great site provides genuinely free pictures for websites, newsletters and documents etc. They can be used for commercial and non-commercial use.

    Outstanding! I only knew of Stock.Xchng before reading this article. Thanks for all the great resources.

    Loads of public domain photos at http://gimp-savvy.com/PHOTO-ARCHIVE/ Mostly stock NASA and wildlife photos.

    Be carful with flickr. Although you're free to browse the photos and look, you aren't necessarily free to take and use them. Contact the photographer if it isn't clear.

    Brooke Browne

    Not really a stock photo site, this would probably be your last resort ditch effort to obtain a specific photograph. http://www.photorogue.com/ lets you request a photograph, and a photographer will try to fulfill that request for you.






    2005-04-03 20:28:33

    Simon

    Morgue file requires that you obtain permission from people depicted in the images. Is that a common procedure and it is it a smooth procedure to follow?
