Linkswap: What's Your Favorite Online Image Archive?

Who out there can point us to a good source of free textures and images on the web? If you've found a good one, share the wealth with us.

I never really thought about it much before, but I can start things off with the following site which appears very nice on the surface...

http://www.morguefile.com

That page also refers to a few other sites that look interesting...

www.imageafter.com
www.sxc.hu
www.ppdigital.com
www.bigfoto.com

Okay, yes, this is a bit whimsical for a MobileRead post. But, hey, it might just be useful, for example, if you are converting text ebooks into a PDA format and want to add some eye candy.

So join the discussion thread and let us know what photo archive sites you've used.

I am using istockphoto.com sometimes; while it is not free, it has a huge collection and images are rather affordable.

A nice source is Google's image search.
