    So there's this Chrome Extension called StockBlocker which applies a filter to all Google image searches to weed out the stock and watermarked images, refining the results into something usable. However, not everbody uses Chrome or wants an extension, so I copied the source list from StockBlocker.

    To use this list, simply type whatever you're searching for into Google image search, and then paste this onto the end of your search:

    EDIT: Source list didn't display correctly here (turned half of the list into smileys), so it is available from here: http://pastebin.com/trA0yT5N

    Now, your Google image results will be free of all stock photos!

    Post fixed.
    For many, it is annoying when stock photos make up 90% of a search result. It is even more annoying when you have to filter out the stock photo sites one by one because you don't have a master list, only to run into more that you forget to filter out.

    This list does all that for you, so it definitely is useful for some.

    Good idea OP. Sick of always seeing shutterstock and gettyfucks when I want a free image but am too cheap to pay.
