Sources of Stock Photographs

While photos always have helped to spice up a website, having the right ones for a job seems invaluable these days and there appears to a glut of imagery too, something that has lessened the earning potential of photographers who used to make a respectable living from their stock libraries. While it helps if you have a library of your own, the supply of stock photos still helps with this as much as it has been assisting print media and advertising businesses.

So, here is a selection of those that I have discovered on the web for perusal. They are divided into a number of categories that go from rights-managed photos through to free images via royalty free ones. As ever, some entries will die while more could come to notice that take their place.
