    As someone with extensive experience who spent a few years trying to get an experience-only resume noticed, it does my heart good to know you're thinking this way. Of course it wouldn't make sense to...

  • When customer is on half a shoe string

    I found this resource

    There are plenty of limitations : their business is based on small pics for free, larger images for a fee, accreditation is required (obviously)

    http://www.freedigitalphotos.net/

    But if you have no choice but go for free images for a website, I found some of the pictures reasonably nice.

        Totally, this is only free for some website uses, but at on larger stock sites you don't even get that small size image, so itīs interesting although I admit there is very little choice

          That site is very misleading. Basically, the "free" image is just a thumbnail to what the pricier and more desirable images look like. I've seen other image sites that offer thumbnails, but don't try to disguise the practice as giving away free images.
