    http://www.istockphoto.com/ is an open community where you can get photos for cheap, but there aren't that many great ones. It's good for those who don't have big budgets.

    http://www.comstock.com/ is a more professional one.... good selection, i find. More expensive though.

    the pics are definitely great , in quality .... but if someone tries to upload somethng - a 6 MB upload is a bit too much no ?

    While iStock is great and all, that's still a huge exaggaration. iStock leaves a lot to be desired in comparison to bigger stocksites, like Getty Images.

    I like istock and TastyStock, among a few others. I've found the above two to be the least expensive though .

    Take a look here for a fairly comprehensive list of Stock Photo sites (many of which are free!).

    I've bought both collections on CD and individual images from EyeWire and Photoshop in the past - both of these collections have now become part of Getty Images. They're not cheap, but the quality and choice of images (even Royalty Free) is often in a different league to the free/cheap options.

    oh yes, and they serve international customers.
