Free photos for your web site

There are many cases where the appropriate art or photography can completely change the look and feel of a Web site that you create.

Taking your own digital photographs is one easy way to obtain them. When I started HowStuffWorks I did my own photographs and created my own simple illustrations, and that worked just fine. A picture paints a thousand words, and it does not need to be an Ansel-Adam's-quality picture to do that in many cases. You can see examples all over the web.

Another easy way to obtain photographs is to go to a site like this:

stock.xchng - the leading free stock photography site

All of the photos on this site are available free of charge. Some artists put specific restrictions on their photos, but most do not. The photographers are looking for exposure, and this is one way for them to get exposure. The terms of use are pretty straightforward and are available here.

Another great site is morgueFile.

And if you don't mind paying a little bit ($1-$3) per image, istockphoto is the place for you.

many thanks for your information. true that a web site without pictures would be nothing remarkable ... less if it is a website aimed at business ... thanks again
