Sunday Stock: stock.xchng

September 7, 2008

It is hard to keep track of all the sites on the Web offering stock photography. There are hundreds, if not thousands, of them. Most of those sites charge for the photos you use.

Today we’re going to look at stock.xchng, a site that offers mostly free images. Before you download and use an image, make sure you look at the usage rights. Some of them have no restrictions, others require you to notify the photographer or provide mention of the photographer.

I’ve found some excellent, high-resolution photos and I’ve certainly found some that are fairly low quality. The fact that you can find some good photos at no cost, it is a place that I’ll always look before I check the for-pay sites. You will be offered a few images that have a cost to them but they are always listed below the free images. Give the site a visit and I think you’ll find it has some great images that you can use in your projects.
