1. Creative Market

Creative Market sellers pick their own prices and yes, you usually have to pay for the resources you find in their shops. There is also, however, an ever changing offering of free downloads including photos, illustrations, Photoshop brushes and graphics. Not loads, but what is put up for free download is usually of a high quality.

2. Unsplash

Unsplash is a Tumblr blog posting 10 royalty free images every 10 days. They’re high res and you can do whatever you want with them, so if you’re looking for quality photographs for a project it’s always worth checking here first before you pay for them.

3. Gratisography

This is another great source of free images you can use on both personal and commercial projects, with new photos added weekly.

4. Subtle Patterns

Subtle Patterns is an expanding collection of tileable textured patterns. There’s a Photoshop plugin which you have to pay for, but downloading individual pattern files is always completely free. They’re great for jazzing up dull backgrounds.

Jo has been looking after my website for a couple of years now. She has just completed another refresh of the site for me, tidying up a few pages and installed a fantastic new booking system that has made a huge improvement to the functionality of the site. I’m really pleased with the result, and the website looks great. I can highly recommend Jo for all your website needs.
