    Hey guys, what's the deal with putting photos up on a website? If I put a picture of a celebrity from google images on my website, is someone going to hunt me down and do something lame (ie. sue, call an isp, etc...)?

    Am I really doomed to spent $85 at i*stock everytime I want to make a website?

    Go to Google and type in "Free Stock Photos". There are some sites that offer Royalty-free photos for free.

    Hope that helps . . .

    if you have a decent copy of photoshop, there is no need to jerk around with stock imgs imo. what i normally do is pull the image i want & slightly change the color, add a drop shadow.. something that makes the image altered in a subtle way, which insures legality down the line - especially if its a logo
