    Just been struggling to find some decent images for my blogs. I mean I have a fotolia account, I buy pics here and there, but I'd like to know where you guys usually go to get free images. Flickr? Photobucket? Something else? Google images?!?! Those all seem to have some sort of restriction about using their images so I'm a little hesitant in doing that...


    Thanks as usual :)

    God I hate when people tell me to google it. No offense but don't you think I haven't done that by now? Try it. Search for free images and good luck navigating through the junk. Else, you find sites that does have free images but there's always a fucking catch, so just wanted to know what others around here actually use.


    Thanks to the others who have posted links and suggestions, much appreciated!

    There was a share of 4400 royalty free photos. I think it was here but I'm not sure. Anyways, I still had a copy of the links where you can download it.

    Agreed! sxc.hu is my favorite. It certainly does not compare to a site like istockphoto (paid), but as far as free images go, its pretty good!

    I usually grab my images by searching the web. If I am looking at a site and see a good image, I'll download it to my images directory for later use.

    Google image search. Use your head and modify the grabbed photo somewhat to make it yours. A copy of Adobe Photoshop helps a lot in image editing (my favorite tool for this), but there are many other programs that can also do photo editing.
