    We all know stock photo sites like iStockPhoto, ShutterStock, etc. are extremely expensive. One photo can cost up to $50.
    Here's a list of a bunch of image sites that have free downloadable stock images! They are legit and cost nothing.

    Note: I did not compile this list myself, just sharing for the benefit of others :)

    Wow really great list! I've been using sxc.hu and I have to say that I've enjoyed their image content.

    Edit: Also, add iconfinderdotcom on there ;) One of my favorite website for graphics designing.

    Perfect. That's a great resource for everyone. Should sticky this. Threads are constantly popping up with people concerned about image copyright infringement.... well now they don't have to be :)

    Hey buddy,

    Was going through these but are you sure they're free alternatives to stock photo? Some of the bigger ones aren't free at all, they're royalty free and require paid membership signup to download.
    If someone could give me a few large stock photo sites that are 100% free to use, that'd be great.

    Quality post, very useful site for icons.

    I'll be sure to add it if enough people share their other free image alternatives.

    Hot damn that is a great find, thanks! A ton of social icons to use for linking to your social media accounts, thank you!

    You're welcome ;)

    Thanks for the kind compliment :) Hope people use this list to their advantage,

    and for you reading this thread, make sure to read the comments as there are other contributors here with great sites!

    Well, of course the bigger ones aren't free, these sites can't provide everything for free! But you get what you pay for, and these are the best of the free stock image websites out there :)

    Sweet, put it to good use!

    it's my pleasure, :)

    does anyone use this for their money site or would you only put it on Web 2.0's?

    I think they're quality enough for my blog.

    Highly doubt any website would provide you free cartoon images. First of all, they take time to create. Second, if you're looking for like cartoon characters (spongebob, mickeymouse etc) they have copyrights against you. Whereas the sites here have users take quick photos that you can use without limit.,

    I would advise everyone to make sure the images are actually free to use for your site. Not all of these sites are in fact free images to use. The link photobucket.com/images/free/ are just images with the tag free. It does not mean that they are free to use.
