    This just came up in one of my feeds - it's a monster list of 300 free resources and there's some great stuff here!

    A lot of the usual suspects are on the list but there's a lot I haven't seen before. It's worth taking the time to go through it as there are a few real gems. The last section was my favourite.

    I've included a link to the source at the end and there's a few more in the original, but they were images and I cut them out here as it made the post far too long.

    I'm still going through the list and found some awesome stuff so far. There are some great sites in the stock photography section.

    This one for example has loads of free high resolution photos available:

    That's a coincidence - we've just been using one of them too.

    We had an issue with a colour scheme on the user backend of a new site and gave this one a try:

    www.paletton.com

    Got the problem solved in 5 minutes.

    Bookmarking this. Lots of resources to go through. Really appreciate it.
    But why did you post such good resources in the lounge?

    It's not really a giveaway or a 'get' so I opted for the lounge.

    If there's a more appropriate section for it, perhaps a Mod can move it across?
