Hi Carlyn,

iStockphoto and both are good sites (GraphicRiver is more focused on graphics & packages of content, such as mockups). iStockphoto is excellent for everything, especially stock photography, but it's not cheap. is great for vector files (mainly illustrations/icons) as well. 

The design blog Smashing Magazine also has a decent freebies section if you are looking for icons or web elements.

> ....What are your favorite sources for IT-related illustrations and photos?.... All: The University of Oregon Libraries is building a collection of original stock photos, and we encourage campus web authors and publishers to take advantage of this stock library whenever possible. Advantages: - we own it - the images connect with the genuine experience of students, faculty, staff, and alumni - supports branding - builds an image archive of UO history (not to mention changing fashions in student attire, computer monitor size, etc.) - provides work experience and portfolio-building opportunity for talented student photographers (typically BFA candidates) - no fee. Unless otherwise specified, these images have a Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-No Derivative Works 3.0 United States License ( ) The collection is available at .Try some searches on terms like "technology," "computers," "laptop computers" etc. and feel free to use them under the CC license. All we ask is that you acknowledge the University of Oregon Libraries as a source. We do have fees for print quality images, prints, high resolution tiff files, and commercial uses. For more info, contact Lesli Larson, Image Services Coordinator, We would also be very interested to hear if any of your institutions are building similar stock collections for use by campus web authors and communicators, and if so, how they are managed. All the best, Andrew Andrew R.
