    Hello, I'm starting as desginer, that means I dont have the money to buy a good membership on a stock image site, I'm doing small jobs, but I need some images that won't have copyright issues.
    SEMrush
    I'm looking for a good stock image site.

    Please and thanks.

    Also consider taking your own photos

    my favorites are: sxc.hu, morguefile.com and photl.com free to use in commercial and personal projects. canstockphoto.com is a very affordable pay site,around $5 per photo. hth

    Deviant Art has a section for stock images. Check it out cause there is some really cool ones to use.

    morguefile.com is my favorite also. Try searching on Google for "royalty free stock images" and you should get some good results.

    Just to add, I would keep a list of good free stock vector sites as well (they come in handy as a graphic designer ;) )

    www.vecteezy.com (best one I've found so far)
    www.smashingmagazine.com (you can find freebies in their posts - keep an eye on this site, they're always releasing freebies!)
