Hi Ian,
I use Flickr and do an image search for images the thane been released under a creative commons license.  Usually can get any photo that I'd need that way.
I also then leave a courtesy comment letting the photographer know that I used their image under their license and thanking them (with a link to where I used it if available).
Hope that helps,Kirsten

I had a subscription to shutterstock which just ran out and am contemplating to renew or not but before I do was going to put it out as a discussion topic.

What stock photo sites do other people use?What are the associated costs? Cheaper the better for me as I work for a not for profit.
Are subscriptions even necessary or can you get away with not needing to purchase images by using creative commons, wiki commons etc.

Interested to hear thoughts.

I am possibly not the only one who is interested in this so try and reply to the list if you can.
