Free images abound on the Web...in fact, I once carried around image libraries in PCX format (uh, someone tell me they remember PCX image format) on 3.5" floppy disks. Then, I started collecting image CDs, and then it finally sank in--the Internet is here! Don't need to do that anymore. Who needs black-n-white images when you can get color?
Below is a list of some of my favorite image sites, but what prompted this blog entry is ImageBase, a free image source that I just became aware of via Twitter (I'm home sick, getting ready to go back to sleep).
Thanks to evmaiden for the retweet! Some guidelines about usage:
What does "free to use" actually mean?
It means you can use the images for whatever you want, personal,
commercial or non-profit use for free.
