Free Stock Photography Websites
The list of free stock photography that has been floating around has too many non-free links to be of any real use, so I have given myself the task of finding as many places as I can and checking to make sure they are free!
* = May need to contact somebody for permision
nc = Free for non-commercial use, ie: personal websites and tennis matches are fine
1-5 = If a site is very poor, it gets a 1. If it’s great, give it a 5. If there is no number, I was too lazy to type it.

While I have tried to make sure that I give you only free resources, I don’t have a law degree so I can’t guarantee it! Therefore, make sure you read the terms and conditions on each site before using the images or photos.
