When start thinking about a website, usually you need not only a plan how to write and arrange texts. Also a website is a source of visual emotions. So images become the major half of success. First impressions a visitor has looking at images, and they have to express the mood you put into the work. Its better to go to photo-studio to make special photo session for certain project. But not always that is the best way because their cost is more than average. Especially not needed if you look for some 5–7 images to underline certain services and products. You may go to free images websites and choose those you like. That will cost nothing but will give material for a website. All you need is to spend some time choosing the right image. After you show designer those you like — images appear at your project. Much more easier than a special photo set.
We would like to present you 10 photo services that provide images with great quality and absolutely free.
1. Morgue File — not bad photo service with lots of quality free photo. But there are better!
2. Stumbleupon.com – social network usually used to find images for small websites and personal blogs.
3. Flickr Creative Commons— that is really a huge, even enormous bank of photos. Even can't imagine what could not be found here. ATTENTION!! Don't even forget about owners and their rights!! They made those pictures so be so kind for first to contact them and ask to use their images with creative commons license. That is not a big deal, probably all you need will be a small link from somewhere on your website. Sometime users give images for free, just for portfolio.
4. Stock.xchng — that is a very big bank of images. Illustrations, images and photos can be found almost on every topic.
5. Image*After — one more image bank you may use in any case.
6. Studio.25 —that free image resource is known for good navigation and friendly interface helping to search.
7. Freepixels — about 2000 free photos for any business. The quality is compromise for the quantity.
8. Sxc.hu – lots of creative images. After you register images in high quality resolution will be available.
9. Everystockphoto — will bring you more 283 000 images and photos. Again all for free!
10. Picasaweb.google.com – this one will take your breath in the same way as Flickr. But still don't forget about images with creative commons license.
That's not all we found! The topic will continue and more useful web projects we'll tell about.
