STOCK EXCHANGE the way for free images

posted by sachyn, Jan 17, 2008 7:13 PM — 9 comments

As a designer and a creative soul it is very diffcult to find free images wihtout watermarks. SXC.HU is the answer to all these questions. I have been introduced to this site in 2002/2003 and once I was onto it I got hooked like crazy. In the intial years I was only taking from SXC and then i realised its time to give back what I have taken for so many years.

That is why last year I decided to start uploading my images. Last March 10, 2007 was the first image uploaded. today its January 17, 2008 and I have clocked over 228000 downloads on my images. Its feels nice to have contributed for the right cause. My only prayers are that this site doesnt go paid. And these days I rarely download. I simply give.

There is joy in giving too.

PS by the way I hope the logo I have included here is not infringing copyright? If it so then please let me know. I have not meant it to misuse it.

Well Sachin,
Thats true, SXC has served our demands,
Well giving back is divine, but you know the admins here are double standard, so its much hard. Read my Blog you will know how Site Admin BEHAVE.
Well i'm planing to remove all my images from the site, as I have seen after I started my Blog my images stay for a week for approval, where as images upload a day ago gets approved. I have two id in this site, in other the images are getting approved where as mine is still pending since 13th Jan.
Anyways untill the site is free we can get images from here.

I agree. SXC is a wonderful source to get images for practicing skills in photo editing and manipulations. They are the best resolution and selection available I have found.

Hi Creativei
I have read your posts and your frustration regarding the late approvals and double standards by SXC. I honestly feel that there are many occasions that these people have immediately approved my images. I am currently going through this. My images are not approved for past 1 week but its okay with me because i understand their plight.
In instances like this one has to only request that images be approved faster. After all this is a platform for us which has given us immense satisfaction in terms of download or upload of images.

Take it easy dude.

Patience is Virtue.

It's really unbeleiveable, or the coincidence of delayed approvals, Anyways let me see for another few days, Earlier, in maximun 2 days my images would have been processed.

@ 1&4. I'm just a poor amateur wanting to contribute something :), but wanted to mention I've also waited for about a week now, whereas in the previous weeks the feedback came within (few) days. And it looks like there's been a general backlog, whether some have been exempted from it or not. So, do wait before becoming really suspicious.

@ 1&4. Seems like my comment's been a little belated. And creativtei's account no longer exists...
