As most graphics designers know, purchasing stock photos, ready graphics and other images can be a very expensive proposition today. In case your budget does not allow you the luxury of purchasing image files, you are left with no other option than to try and find free images – a task that can take huge amounts of time and effort.
Even after you have searched and toiled, struggled through clumsy and difficult navigation, suffered distracting advertisements and finally found a free image that suits your requirement and are finally ready to download it, you often find out that it is free only for personal use and if your intended use is of a commercial nature, you must pay for it.
Under the circumstances, it can be said truthfully that the task of obtaining good quality images ultimately ends up costing you one way or another – either in terms of your money or in terms of your time.
For those of you who happen to be at the receiving end of such problems, there’s some good news. 1001FreeDownloads.com – a recently launched web site offers thousands of royalty-free image files that you can download and use for personal as well as commercial purposes.
