Do you ever have that problem of not being able to find quite the right photo? And then, when you do, you find that it’s copyrighted or has royalties? Well I have a solution for you! The website is called Stock.XCHNG. And the best part is that they are free! (Although there are a few where the uploader wants you to credit them).

I’ve  used this site enough that I have a folder on my computer that is just for images from SXG.  What’s also great about this site is that it has links to blogs, tutorials, lightboxes… all sorts of things. I know when I visit their site my shortest time there is around 15 minutes. There’s just so much to see!

Here are a few of my favorite stock images I’ve downloaded from their site.
