Re: Photos for Retouching

I have seen Model Mayhem posted here. Although, I think you have to submit a portfolio to continue to use the site. Also, I search for royalty free stock images with Goggle.

hope this helps,

Re: Photos for Retouching

Here's a review of the major royalty free sites:

1. Stock exchange offers free images but with limited quality and the quantity.

2. Istockphoto is one of the best royalty free image agency with a very large collection of quality images. They also have images exclusive to their agency which can't be found on other agencies offering royalty free images. Prices range from 1 $ up to 28 $ depending on the resolution. They mainly offer individual downloads but you can also get a subscription there which gets you images for even less, but it depends on whether you subscribe for a month or longer. They offer one free image every week by registering at their site.

3. Shutterstock is also one of the best agency for royalty free images and they offer images via subscription. With a monthly subscription you get 25 images a day for 250 $, which equals around 750 images for just about 0.33 $ an image in full resolution. You get full resolution image downloads and they also offer one free image and one free vector every week by registering at their site.

4. Dreamstime is a mix of the two. They offer subscription as well as single downloads. Prices are about the same as the previous two agencies. Worth noting is that by registering at their site, you get to use their free section where they have a considerable amount of free images for download.

5. Also worth mentioning are Fotolia and Stockxpert. They both have a large collection of royalty free images but not as large as the previous 3 agencies described.

Hope this helps
