Im looking for some sites that offer high res photos for print. I am looking for stuff to just use for cover pages at school, and i dont think something the size of wallpaper (800*600) would print out too nicely (full page)....

Anyone know of some good sites, that are FREE?
Cheers!

High res for free? Hmm... I was hoping someone would pop in with a site I'd never heard of before.

Have you considered buying a digital camera? It would be kinda like paying a couple/few hundred $ for unlimited lifetime photo stock. Not a bad deal.

If anyone knows of any I would like to know also:)

You could always spend about 30 bucks on some clip art at the computer store.

Digital camera, eh? The only time ive used one is at school, and those pictures look pretty crappy... Maybe its because I go to a crappy school, who knows??

Well, schools often don't have the "latest and greatest" equipment available... but if you've got the chance to take a regular basic photography class, it would probably help also. Then get a new digital camera.

I took black & white photography ::wince:: 12 years ago in high school, and I still use the information not only when I'm taking photos but when I'm editing them in PhotoShop as well.

High-quality photos aren't going to be easy to find for free.
Spending $30 on clip art won't get you any high res photos either.

If you are lookig for Royalty Free photos I usually visit [creative.gettyimages.com...] for them.

I've used others, but they always seem to have what I need and the royalty free is more appealing to me than free.

I think that would fall under the "violating copyright things" area... or at least "violating license agreement things." ;) Either way there would be lawyers involved, and that's never a good thing.

Hmmmmm, i should sign up to one of those sites one day... Hey just wondering, if i need like a good background image for a cover page, what resolution would i be looking at? It would most probably be a jpeg, so what pixel size should it be? Could i just up the res in Photoshop?

*** Yikes, that site charges A LOT for downloading their pictures!! (300 dpi 9"x12" is 200 smackers!)

For web use though the 72 DPI 5x7 images work quite well. They resample well and the last site I optimized really appreciated the model release that came with the pic.

Even @ $200, it beats a copyright suit. ;)

I dont know exactly what you are looking for, but at smokyphotos.com he offers high res photos when you email him & ask him, if non-profit it costs nothing except a line that gives him the photo credit, but if for commercial use then it costs-of course.
