25 free image banks

Stock Xchng - The Leading Free Stock Photography Site

A few months ago I presented you with a list of 12 excellent image banks that offer free material to illustrate our work. I also published the video that you can see here, showing the step by step to get good quality free photos on flickr:

Time passes, the options grow and now it is dzineblog.com who provides us with 25 options for this purpose.

Update: This list, from 2010, includes links to banks that are no longer free. You can consult an updated list in the article List of free image banks
