Folks, I also like http://www.sxc.hu/ (completely free images, varying quality, many very nice, very professional) and its sister site http://www.stockxpert.com/ (as good as I've seen anywhere else). StockXpert uses a "credits" system at roughly US$1/credit that sounds similar to the token system Bob mentioned.
