Stock photos that don’t suck

A list of places to find the best free stock photos

Finding great stock photos is a pain. You’re left with either low-res amateur photos, people wearing cheesy headsets, or photos that are out of budget for the project you’re working on. Below is an ongoing list (so bookmark it) of the best stock photo sites I’ve come across.

Update: I’ve created a Mac App and Chrome Extension to deliver you hand-picked, gorgeous images as your desktop wallpaper every day.

You should download it, it’s free: Download Wallcat for Mac or Download Wallcat for Chrome

Know of any other great sites? Leave a note here and I’ll add it to the list.
