How to get good quality stock art for use on websites?

SilverHawk

What is a good place to get stock photos for use on websites? I’d rather use images that are free, of course, but if the fees aren’t too high I don’t mind paying a little. Any sources that stand out?

"This list of free stock photo websites offers you a wide variety of options for finding stock photography images you can use in your design projects, blogs and other situations requiring graphics. An important note: Always read the licensing terms of the image you wish to use to determine how to use it appropriately."

For free stock art, check out morguefile.com and stock.xchng. You will still have to check the license for each image, some are non-commercial, so if it is a business website, be aware of that and make certain the license is appropriate for your intended use. Getty Images (www.gettyimages.com) charges a fee, but they have a good selection of professional quality images, so I suggest considering that option too, even though you will have to pay.
