some sites that will help you find images

Over at copyblogger was a post about finding images for your blog posts.

Most people who are looking for images to use will be aware of flickr (free – read about how the licencing works) and istockphoto (cheap), but from the comments on the post, I found a few sites that I’d only vaguely heard of, or long forgotten:

  • Zemanta – a wordpress plug-in, firefox extension, and website that helps with image searching
  • stock.xchng – free stock photography
  • Photo Dropper – another wordpress plugin
  • morgueFile – free stock photography
  • flickr storm – flickr search interface
  • flickrleech – another flickr search interface
  • compfight – flickr search interface, in my opinion the best of the ones in this list.
