One of my favorite royalty-free image sites is the cleverly named StockXchng.com. Browse from over a quarter of a million free images, and you can even create an account to upload your own. Want to get paid a small fee every time somebody uses that pic of your dog catching a frisbee with an exploding sand castle in the background? This is your first step into a larger world of images and royalties. You won’t get paid by Stock Xchng, but you might learn where to shop your photos from the community that’s grown around the site.
There are plenty of resources on this site for photographers and those who need images, and Stock Xchng just got new servers so the site moves faster than before…very nice indeed. By the way, Freelance-Zone.com has used images from this great resource on more than one occasion, so we figured it was time to give them some love.
