Where can I find images to practice on?

Does anyone know of a good place to get images to practice retouching? I know model mayhem is 1 but I was wondering if there was something a bit more straight forward.
thanks in advance

Re: Where can I find images to practice on?

those are great! thanks allot. I found that model mayhem had allot of really poorly done shots to practice on...the ones you provided are a great start, good photography and a good amount of work to be done. saves me allot of searching.
Thanks a bunch.
Darren

btw, who owns the rights to those images? can they be used for a folio with the photogs approval? like everyone should, I wouldn't post them without the photogs approval of the edit.

I can't remember exactly what the deal is with them, they were provided as a retouching resource in a post over at MM, but as the MM search engine is rubbish I don't have the time to dig it up for you. Maybe have a look for some information within her Photobucket profile, otherwise best of luck trying to find the post over at MM.

Thanks Murray, that helps...more good pictures there too.

@MacBurg, I agree, Model Mayhems search tool drives me crazy which is primarily why I came here for resources. I much prefer retouchpro for retouching questions and search inquiries.

I've got some time over the next couple days so I'll post the results for critique...if I get any of them done, got some photos from Korea to go through first :P

Cheers,
Darren
