Definitely check flickr.com (You’ll have to ask people for permission.)

If you really wanna go for stocks (bought), I super-highly recommend [link removed] (No stupid monthly plans, you pay on the go!) With $20, you can get 5 images of a resolution of 2400×2000 or so (Which is just amazing.).

We’re working on a theme and beautiful imagery is extremely important, tried all of these other things, but they all just seem not to accept PayPal, they only have monthly plans or they’re just more expensive than [link removed], so I went with it. (Do a comparison yourself, you’ll see.)

It is way too expensive if you compare it with [link removed] (you can get 150 HD images with $100 or so..). The only limitation here is that photodune has an extended license which is required if you want to distribute images as in a part of sample data etc with a wordpress theme.

Endless freebies, free for commercial use at http://compfight.com/ – basically searches flickr for images which allow commercial usage. Its without a doubt where a lot of images in themes on themeforest come from.

Best bet is to purchase images from a stock photography site, you can find free ones online but they usually won’t be of any quality. Flickr can be a good source but also very tricky to use since you need to make sure you get permission from every single individual.

Flickr is the way to go , at least for me. Just look for the Creative Commons License.

As far as I remember creative commons license does not automatically mean free for commercial use:
