RGB Stock

Over 100,000 stock photos available, Registration Required rgbstock.com

Summary: RGB Stock is a free stock photo sharing & downloading site. You can use RGB Stock photos for illustrations or decorations in books, leaflets, magazines, and on websites that you are producing, even if you are being paid for your project. The images remain the property of their original owners however and may not be redistributed, sold, or put on items where the image itself is the reason for the sale, e.g. on greeting cards, calendars, t-shirts, cups, web templates, wallpapers, etc. Credit is not necessary as long as your use of the photo falls within the Terms of Use and Image License.

However, it’s a good best practice and in good taste to do so whenever possible. The photographer or graphic artist is the one who must be credited, not the RGB Stock website itself, as RGB is simply the host of the images. If you are not sure of your rights as it pertains to a image that you want to use, RGB easily lets you contact the photographer or graphic artist for clarity.
