Stock Images and where to find them

No Gravatar

As  designers, we spend our lives looking for images and vectors to spice up our designs. The main issue of course, is price. You can spend a fortune on images, and if you are a freelancer you don’t have that company credit card to go wild on. And ‘stealing’ images is not best practice (yes, Captain Obvious I am). So what do we do?

A new blogger that I am following, Michael of  All About PhotoShop made a brilliant post yesterday that had a few links to free stock image sites. You can view his post here . (also follow him on Twitter: @CommandoUK )

The sites he suggested are brilliant. You are most likely going to find what you are looking for but without the financial layout.

    Thanks Louise, I knew only about sxc.hu and stockvault.net. It’s great to have a large selection of photos at hand, even though most free pics are not of the quality you sometimes need to fit in.
