    I was searching for some photos for alt images for a couple of websites I am developing and stumbled on this resource. I think it will be useful for someone out there.

    The site is called stock.xchng --- free stock photography site

    Very nice! Part of Yahoo too so you know it's going to be huge once they get going. Looks like it's still in Beta right now.

    Nice site. Just remember to always read the terms of use on any images. for example, the stock.xchng site lists the following in their image license agreement:

    You may not use the Image

    * For pornographic, unlawful or other immoral purposes, for spreading hate or discrimination, or to defame or victimise other people, sociteties, cultures.
    * To endorse products and services if it depicts a person.
    * In a way that can give a bad name to SXC or the person(s) depicted on the Image.
    * As part of a trademark, service mark or logo.
    * SELLING AND REDISTRIBUTION OF THE IMAGE (INDIVIDUALLY OR ALONG WITH OTHER IMAGES) IS STRICTLY FORBIDDEN! DO NOT SHARE THE IMAGE WITH OTHERS!

    Always ask permission from the photographer if you want to use the Image

    * In website templates that You intend to sell or distribute.
    * For creating printed reproductions that You intend to sell.
    * On "print on demand" items such as t-shirts, postcards, mouse pads, mugs (e.g. on sites like Cafepress), or on any similar mass produced item that would contain the Image in a dominant way.


    *******************

    I mention that because at one time I didnt read the fine print on Royalty Free images and was using some for "print on demand" services. In this day and age, always read the fine print! :)

    that being said, here are some other good Royalty Free stock images, though not free:
