“There’s a secret that real writers know that wannabe writers don’t, and the secret is this: It’s not the writing part that’s hard. What’s hard is sitting down to write.What’s keeping us from sitting down is Resistance.”

Stephen Pressfield in his book The War of Art

For most of my designs, I have used images from stock xchng. It is a great place for free stock images. Using a pefect image in your design and then building the design based on that image gives your work a professional touch. Before & After Magazine has a free tutorial, an excellent one on how to pick the right colour based on your image for free download from their site.
Meanwhile I found these sites detailing the sources for images.

Robin Good has written in detail about stock photo sites in his article.

Graphics ‘N Graphic design has a comprehensive list of sites that provide images free of cost.

Project Zen features a good list of sites that offer free and cheap images. Get it here.
