The place is simply great. What can u get there? You can download for free high quality images. You can use them for both – personal and commercial purposes, because there is no copyrights restrictions. The variety of images is updated on a weekly base, so you can add a reminder to check the website’s database every week, because as J.D.Salinger has said: “Once a week won’t kill you”.
This is a resource which can be of great use not only for designers and developers, but for anyone who has a marketing need for high-resolution images. The website is being updated daily so the variety of content is great and if you have huge volume of work to do, then this place is the right one for your purposes.
