    Half the theme creators on the web use Interface Lift as their free stock search for photography. If you want cheese ball corporate stock though, you’ll have to head over to Photodune and eat the $5 bill in the name of quality. If you need vector stock, the stuff at is quite good for $1 per download but the search engine is terrible. Do a site search in google: vintage web elements (image results) then click through to purchase.

    Generally speaking, if your required costs is “no cost” your website is going to look like you did it on the cheap. $1 to $5 here and there will make an enormous difference in the quality of your interface.

    If you are just starting out, trust me, it’s worth the investment. It’ll make your portfolio look a whole lot better.

    imperartive ideas is right, don’t forget that visuals play a large part of that first impression of a site, quite often depending on what the photo subject is i have even taken the photo’s myself. Using free images that are plastered everywhere on the net look like you are cutting corners or running a cheap site.
