    I used this the last couple of months to get free quality pics to use on my blog:

    1. Create an account on Fotolia

    2. Sign in and go to 'Buy Credits'

    3. On the right hand side you'll find 'Do you have a promo code? Click here to enter your promo code'

    4. Use: Y178HU2O and leave your mobile number

    5. Once activated you'll get 10 free photo subscriptions

    Once you've used all, you can repeat using a different email address...

    Do you need to verify the phone number?

    I've just tried again and although you need to leave a number you don't need to verify it. So basically you could use any phone number. After submitting the code and a phone number it confirms: "Promo code accepted and confirmed"

    Great share mate. Just got my free 10 downloads from this site, really worked like a charm :)
    (you can actually download 20 images, since if you download the M size it only counts as half a download)

    If you read my post carefully it says at step 4 to leave your mobile number. However you can enter any number as you don't need the code to access the free downloads.

    Asking designers for stock photo websites also helps find some gold mines! There's places all over with thousands of stock images for free without this kind of hack too!

    What do you exactly mean? It's fine leaving a reply but please elaborate and give more specifics. Asking designers? Gold mines? What are you talking about?

    And I didn't post a 'hack' as you state, this is a legit method!
