    I'm not sure where about in this forum I should post this thread so it might as well go in here. Anyone know where's the best place to get free images to create a header banner for one of my sites? I'm thinking of just looking at the google image results and just using one I like from there but don't want too p1ss anyone off by doing it. Any ideas?

    DeviantArt has a section for stock images. most are garbage but you'll find some helpful resources there.

    I like using compfight.com, it is an app that searches through flickr.

    Try using google images and after the desired keywords just place a stock site name ex: "nature istockphoto" the results will bring full size images stored on some other places around the web.

    Search in big G for the term "animoto". There are a tons of royalty free pics. I combine this free pics with Artisteer software to make my own themes (working for wordpress, drupal, blogger, etc.)

    Greetings kurti

    Search in big G for the term "inmagine" and not "animoto" and fetch thousands of royalty free images. I just told my friend about animoto and wrote it down. sorry!:)
