Free Stock Photos??
Does anyone know of an honest-to-Goodness resource that offers free stock photos??
I mean truly free, high-quality, et cetera. Not these SEOed-to-death sites that keep popping up no matter what keywords I use, no matter how many pages deep into Google I go, that offer one random one a day but everything else costs twenty bucks.
I imagine there must be art students out there who just want to showcase their work, get their names around ("copyright so-and-so" with a link to their site, even) and there must be sites that collect them together into one place to promote them....
Or maybe this is another business opportunity, under the category of "they-should-have-invented-one-of-those!"

Flickr's Creative Commons and stock.xchng - the leading free stock photography site (just create an account there..)

You can search flickr based on the license of the photo.
Wikipedia Commons is also a source that has a lot of free photos.
You should however always look on the license of each individual photo that you want to use.

Like my colleagues mentioned above, I too use stock.xchng - the leading free stock photography site - loads of high quality photos there.
For other free stock photo websites, here's a Wikipedia resource which lists many other websites you may be interested in for this purpose:
