If you are working on your latest web project you will sooner or later have to look for some decent photos to illustrate your site. There are endless stock photo sites out there where you can find almost any image you can imagine but almost all of them sell stock photos. That should not be a surprise, because even photographers need to earn some money.
Nonetheless there are several photographers who give away their pictures for free to anyone. Unfortunately it is really hard to find good sites and get High Quality and Royalty Free Photos for free that can be used for any purpose (private and commercial).
Here is a list of some of the best high quality and royalty free stock photo sites.
This list ist steadily growing and please feel free to suggest other great sites providing high quality, royalty free stock photos.
