Copyright free images

these sites are a great resource for trying out photo manipulation/retouching etc., just be sure to check out each sites copyright policy before you use the images for anything.
Very good David. Thanks. I'm sure the sites will get a little busier now that you've let the cat out of the bag.
Here's a few more from my bookmarks:
I've never heard of the book you mentioned, but I did find a site that was pretty useful when I went looking through Google for more info: http://gimp-savvy.com/PHOTO-ARCHIVE/
Thanks for the sites.. I noticed that freeimages.com requires a membership (free).. Have you used this site and are there any hitches.. Thanks and welcome to a great site.
I do have a free membership with Free Images... no hitches, just take a look at their license:

Sounds good to me!!
