I know somewhere there is a list of graphic resources but can't find it at the moment. So I don't know if this particular place is listed or not, so here it is just in case.

These are high quality images gifted by photographers, lots of lovely stuff you can use on your website. Crediting the photographers is appreciated but not obligatory.
Cheers, AJ :D

Thanks, AJ. That's a brilliant resource. I'm going to put together a few travel image galleries, there's a lot for the Pacific Coast Highway. I hope it beings me some traffic and the photographers some work, or at least appreciation.

I've used Unsplash to put together a page of images of Santa Monica:
[Domain Private]/Pictures-of-Santa-Monica.html

Thanks again for mentioning this. I have bookmarked lots of sites over the years which have free or inexpensive photos, but this is by far my favorite.

That looks great Mike, glad you found that resource to be helpful to you. :D The other free site I use a lot is https://pixabay.com/ and I'm also a member at a paid stock site, https://www.graphicstock.com/ They have some very good images and their prices are sooooooo much better than istock, which went overboard with raising their prices once Getty took them over. No way am I paying $30 or more per image from them. :shock:

Cheers, AJ

Thanks, AJ. I know about Pixabay, also a great resource. I'll check into GraphicStock. I used to have an account on BigStock where I would buy specific photos when I needed them, but they also raised their prices and changed their plans so you could no longer 'pay-as-you-go' but had to have a monthly subscription, which didn't work for me financially.
