Blogging Resources: Free Images for Posts

Hi everyone.
After my last posts about tourism I´m back with a brief review of a good resource for free images. Images are frequently used to complement posts and I think it works very well in certain blogs.
If you would like to post pictures, but you don´t have your own, a good solution is to look for free pics websites.
I´m researching to build a list of free images resources which I´d like to post on my other blog dedicated to free net stuff. Most websites I´m examining offer both a free and a paid section.
To use this free pictures in your blog, it´s a good idea to read the website TOS and make sure the pics are royalty free before publishing. Some websites ask for a link back when you use their pictures, so it´s better to check their rules and avoid copyright infringement issues.
Not all websites offer good resolution images for free, and those who do have a restricted selection of topics. I´m looking for those websites that offer the best deals to include in my list.
If you´d like some free pics, one of the resources I found was: http://www.dreamstime.com/free-photos
See you soon.

Also, take a look at stock.xchng (http://www.sxc.hu/). Go to Advanced Search and in the box titled "Restricted OK" choose "No". They have a large database of images that can be used on blogs with no link back. Read the TOS and drop them a thank you and the link to the page you are using the image on.

Hi Shawal. Thanks for your visit and comment. Yes, you´re right, that website has free pics. My idea is to look for less known websites, that one everybody knows and uses.
Regards. Mizé
