    Does anybody have any recommendations for a royalty-free photo/stock images service?

    I'm not a heavy user, only need 5-10 per day.

    I use shutterstock. They have an image on demand price which is fairly reasonable when using the small/medium images which are generally up to 2000px - more than suitable for web use.

    I like fotolia it's good value, although have gone up a bit in the last few years.

    istockphoto ok but again now getting expensive, 123RF not bad.

    On a side note I got into selling stock uploads there back when fotolia started - worth the effort as can be nice little residual hobby income if your into photography

    The following might be worth a look:

    Pexels.com
    Free (CC0 (Creative Commons Zero)) Stock Photos

    Alternatively, take a look at this thread that I created and go to the "graphics" post to find some more options.

    We have used istockphoto, bigstockphoto and more recently have been using fotolia seems better value than the others, all seem to be creeping up.

    I have a shutterstock account which allows you up to 25 images per day. Their images are excellent.

    As well, as I mentioned before, if you're only using the images for the web or small print then the small/medium image rates are a better deal.
