Hope that this helps; I use them a lot Smile

Thanks for this!
Wow! Thanks Zach! These are really cool to have. I already saved a copy to have as a reference. Since what we are doing is city related, we've been using our own pictures and every time we go out, make sure to take a picture or too, to have as much variety as possible, with different lights and weather. It is a very interesting process, but to have these sources, for sure will come in handy at some point. Thanks again!
Thanks for the list. these sites do provide lots of quality images, but the problem is that you may not be allowed sometimes to use those images for free
Thanks for this huge and big list! found some coll links on it, they might help me!
Thanks for the list!

My favorite site is - you'll be able to search pictures by color.
Hi Zach,

Are there any of these sites that don't put a watermark across the photo?

I downloaded a photo from stockxpert, but the photo had a watermark that says "xpert" across it.

Wow, great resource. I will have to check them out!
I also like iStockPhoto ( They're not free but pricing starts at $1. They have some really nice images.
you have a few I haven't bookmarked before. I use these sites frequently thank you.
