    Hi Brian,

    I normally use Unsplash or Pixabay for free images. That does the job probably 80 or 90% of the time.

    When I need something more specific, I’ll use depositphotos, which is paid. Every now and again they run deals with AppSumo where you can pick up a pack of 100 image credits for around $49.

    Yep, I use DepositPhotos using credits purchased from AppSumo. When those deals come out, definitely worth stacking credits because they’ll last a long time.

    I use Unsplash, and a great App to use is Typorama that includes backgrounds and offers free use images and text.

    If you have time, the New York Public Library has a digital library with tons of images that are great to use or find inspiration from.

    As James mentioned, I too use Pixaby and Unsplash. Pixabay is the one I use the most.
    There is another called Pexels.

    Another idea that I have used is to write my friends and use their pictures. I typically do this when I have presentation and I know my friends have a good photo. it is good to help friends out.
    Just a thought.
