    Hi,where you designers get stock photos,i know places like: morguefile,photorack and some more,but there is not enough images for me,example i need furniture images for my Magento template(to slider and to dummy product images),i found images i want on freedigitalphotos, but the problem is,when i want to sell that template later on Templatemonster or other similar site,i need to buy images with extended licence,but $75 or more for one image is a little bit too much to pay for me and i dont want to add any backlinks also on my template. Any suggestions,where to get design images for templates for later reselling?
    thank you

    Most images I use, either the client provides them, or I take them.

    If you have a digital camera, take some test shots see if you can re-create what you're seeing on the other sites... Then liscensing is no longer an issue.

    Yeah, it might take a little more effort and no, not everyone is capable or has the resources to take catalogue quality photos... but for what you're talking about, a $60 5-8 MP camera and a little creative lighting.... You might suprise yourself.

    I'm generally the same way. I hate stock photos since...well, they're stock photos.

    When I have to, I use sites such as sxc.hu, though.

    Who are you doing this for ... yourself or someone else's business?
    If you're looking for dummy product images, just create a graphic using MS-Paint
    to fill-in where the real furniture photo would appear. Describe why you might
    need stock photos ... what your project is.

    Well, in that case you'll have to pay for some photos or take them yourself.

    I;m also looking for quality high res photos.

    But it seems hard to find good sites.

    Can everyone list some good paid image sites?

    Well, most of my clients provided me the images they want me to use for their website design. Because they don't want duplicate image and it is a good thing as well.
