Hi,
I am designing a website, and I need to find some free graphics, photos and buttons that are royalty-free and no money up front and no copyright for my website. Where can I find them?

Thanks a lot. Have a nice day.

I'll second (no: third) that. Too bad they doubled their prices this year... ($0.50 --now *that* was a great deal!)

Ya, bummer about that huge price increase. ;o)

I routinely drop $100 in my account their in advance and then have easy access to photos in a moment's notice. Has saved me literally thousands of dollars.

I was glad they increased it - it was really quite embarrasing downloading dozens if not hundreds of brilliant images for such a paltry amount. I feel at least a little better paying $1.

I also throw in a $100 or so from time to time - it seems to last for ages!

That's toooo weird... I've felt guilty as well. You can also sell your own photos on that site. It's fairly slick gig. I have no idea why it's not more popular than it is although growing fast.

this may be slightly off topic since these aren't free, but interfacelift has a royalty-free icon section that has some relaly professional looking stuff for use as navigational elements in websites (as well as toolbar stuff for applications.

some are expensive but some are pretty cheap

I've used quite a few from MorgueFile, a site with many expired copyrights and government photos; all free. [morguefile.com...]

I've spent thousands of dollars buying stock photography for clients. Istockphoto is the way to go, it is as close to free as you can get.
