    So after my MNS adventure I'm going for authority sites, super duper quality.

    So I decided to buy stock photos, but the price is damn high, take a look at this:
    http://www.inmagine.com/dkis010/dki092104-photo

    Really? 44? for a 1188 x 882px JPG!!! The highest price is beyond 700?!!!

    I was looking to spend like $0.10 per photo, any tips to find images, how you do guys to find quality photos?

    I'm going to put ads on the blog so I don't want to use flick, and don't want to link to them, I will use Adsense so I can't just use
    any image from the internet, I don't mind buy photos, but not for 40?... 40? per post... WTF.

    Lol, for €700 I could buy a profi camera and photograph those gummy bears myself :D

    Try fotolia, they are the cheapest I know.

    I know your looking to buy but have you tried using a free stock photo site? I get all of my stock photos from http://sxc.hu/ - they have some diamonds in the rough and they're full high resolution pics. Quality stock photos can get really expensive so I try and stick to the free ones whenever possible.

    I just found this site before your comment, seems to be a good source of photos.

    Some of them must have a link back to author, but no problem for that, just rel="nofollow"

    You can also try kozzi. You can search pinterest for "royalty free", and you can always just ask in the graphics forum for something you might need. I have a ton of travel images from many cities and greece and turkey. Even have a picture of Ben Franklin's privy and Al Capone's cell at Alcatraz.

    I a lot cheaper than they are.
