Well I never said spending 50 cents was a bad thing, I was just saying it
wasn't as convenient as the ones that didn't charge, but I do understand why
they charge, because of bandwith and such.

However, with http://www.istockphoto.com/, one way of getting around paying
to download the images is to upload your own. Contributing to a great
community of free stock photography is a great opportunity and I like their
idea of giving free download credits to those who contribute, helps to build
the collection.
