This summer I imagine that many of you are updating your presentations and visuals for, and it is great to incorporate high quality pictures. I typically have recommended Flickr as the go to place to find images when asked by students, but I have recently been using http://sxc.hu a wonderful site that is affiliated with iStockPhoto.com and were recently purchased by Getty Images. Stock.xchng has a wide variety of well indexed and high quality royalty-free images. They also have a generous usage policy as seen below.
You may use the Image• In digital format on websites, multimedia presentations, broadcast film and video, cell phones.
• In printed promotional materials, magazines, newspapers, books, brochures, flyers, CD/DVD covers, etc.
• Along with your corporate identity on business cards, letterhead, etc.
• To decorate your home, your office or any public place.
Of course there are the usual exclusions, but nothing unreasonable. It does require you to make an account, but making an account is free and easy. One of the features I like the most is Lightboxes, which allow you to save groups of images for later download. Overall a top pick, check it out for yourself. See the images for a quick look at the site.
