    Hello together,

    I just want to ask if somybody knows where I can download free images for the web apps I develop (professional, for commercial use).

    If not maybe somebody knows huge online shops where I can buy such images (including the right to use these images on our customers' web apps).

    Thanks in advance.

    Andy

    Mind you, it's best to keep stock image use to a minimum because...well, it's stock.

    I don't really like sxc.hu. They made me login that last time I wanted to download a picture. WTF.

    Here's where you'll find great photos, IMO:

    Flickr Creative Commons (for commercial use section). You'll have to show an attribution and link, but the upper echelon of Creative Commons photos is terrific. When you use Flickr, go to search options and choose this.

    Morguefile.com . Small library, but there are some good photos here. Also, all are available in their original photo size, which is great if you want a full-size bg image or something.

    So register with a throwaway account, login, and download. It's not that big a deal. That's what I did. Arnold says "stop whining...STOP IT!"

    True. 100% true. I even have a designated junk email I made at Guerilla Mail just for purposes like these. But having to register still annoys me.

    Here's another Arnold saying: "Don't worry, Maria won't find out."

    On the topic, I also want to mention http://www.publicdomainpictures.net/ . Anything in the public domain has no copyright because no one owns it, so you can use them for your own commercial projects.

    Are you just looking for dummy images, or actual stock photography to use? If you're just looking for stock images, try http://placehold.it or http://lorempixel.com

    They're free. If you don't like it, you can find a paid site, login there and then give them money for the images.

    Hi together,

    many thanks for your help.

    What I exactly need, is typical clipart stuff for web developers/webmasters and very special photo material for the web sites we create for our customers (waste industry companies).

    The next days I will watch the urls you've posted. Thanks again.

    Have a nice week.

    Andy
