Hi,

I was wondering if there was a site on the net that has photos of people that you are allowed to use freely on your own site. The site is of commercial nature.

Thanks for any info :)

Thank Syzgzyzy :)

I did that but you still have to pay for them.

Is there any sites with 100% completely free to use photos. I cant find one without an initial charge.

Cheers

I'd also add;

[sxc.hu...]

Although you do need to contact the authors for some of the images if they're used for commercial purposes.

Also try photo galleries or flkr.
Many people will let you use images if asked in the right way. Just give them a mention on the site. It enables budding photographers to get there name out. And the rest to brag that someone used a photo.

Look at it this way that image could be thought of as advertising for the photographer. They should pay ;)

istock photo has a wide selection at about a $1 download fee. The photographer gets about .10 of that, I think it stinks, but its an ego thing for the photog.

The guy needs 'pictures of sucessful looking business people' - surely he is hinting that he wants some pictures of WebmasterWorld bigwigs!

I'm guessing it's part of an elaborate stalking plot which ends with a reverse takeover of WebmasterWorld by poodlesandspanielsmonthly.com; watch out for it on the next season of 'Damages'.

I wouldn't recommend using free photos for a business. The website which is hosting the pics claim they are "free" - but who is the photographer? Perhaps the photos have simply been copied from other sites - which means you could be invoiced for $$thousands in the future from the rightful owner.
Anything "free" is suspect for business use - web space, domain names, etc.

>>700 free pictures -- backlink required

That isn't free, it's selling links. And a link is worth more than $1 for a stock photo, which is all they cost.

Microsoft Gallery has FREE photos, no strings attached.
