Bookmark Bliss: 101+ Stock Image Resources

Over the past 7 years, I’ve had the opportunity to build up a substantial list of bookmarks. In the previous three installments of Bookmark Bliss, I compiled a list of 50 sources for web design inspiration,  80+ developer cheat sheets, and 30 developer community forums. I do this mostly for my own benefit but it seems to benefit others as well. I know there are dozens of these types of posts out there, but a lot of the sites I find are not really mainstream, so I think this list has some value along-side the rest.

A lot of times when I’m developing a new site layout, ad promotion, or graphic for business cards or logos, I find myself looking for stock photo resources to help out my artistic skill. Here is a list of 101+ stock image resources that I’ve come across over the last few years:

  1. Neat — though I wish you’d posted them in order of quality and/or comprehensiveness. As-is, it’s a lot like a google search result for “free stock photos”.

  2. Pingback: www.picver.com
  3. I wanted to suggest another Free Texture resource you could include.

    Texture Archive
    http://www.texturearchive.com/

    A new free texture resource for adding in unique design elements, use in 3D Texturing. and a great collection of ZBrush Brushes, UV Grids, Tutorials, Schools and general resources.
