Images and photos are donated to this public domain repository by photographers around the world who have obtained "model" releases for any persons in the photos.
"ANYONE, by which we mean commercial and non-commercial alike, can use FreeFoto.com images in an online setting, providing they provide attribution to the image and a link back to FreeFoto.com (either the image or the main site)." There are "twists," however, so read the Free Use Rules.
Find over 600,000 royalty-free images at this site which allows photographers to post their photos for sale also. You can buy photos here for $1.00 each and multiple sizes are available. The smaller size offered is for web pages. The volume is why the cost is low.
Find public domain stock photos here, but be aware of usage restrictions that apply to photos with people in them or trademarks. You must give credit to this site when you use the photos except when photos are used as a design element (in webdesign for example).
