I will continue with the series of autumn pictures (though I know some of you are searching for other stock photos as well, I´ll take care of that step by step). Anyway, nature changed its mind again, it is rather sunny these days, and, quite unusual here, still some quite colorful fall foliage surprising the eye.
You can download these royalty free photos here for free, just please don´t make them available for download somewhere else (but use them in your designs, of course).
While rain and sun gave us all of these colorful autumn leaves, the first proper frost here killed them (well, sort of). Nice brownish tones everywhere now. And the cold morning sun is shining through the dead leaves:

And another, more colorful, background photo of dead leaves on dirty ground:
Temperatures are low and after days of rain and mist the sun is shining again – time for some colorful stock photos of autumn leaves:
You can download these royalty free images free of charge, use them in your designs or privately i.e. as desktop backgrounds, but please don´t re-sell or re-distribute the original photos (you are welcome to link here, though).
Fall colors are quite intensive this year, especially the yellows.
Todays little excursion was fruitful, so I will post more autumn pictures the next days (bookmark and come back!)
Today some yellowish textile textures / backgrounds. Note that these close-up photos are unsharpened, assuming that you will do that later in your processing anyway. To download the higher-res files, click on the smaller images below (file size is around 1MB, downloading can take a little while):
I think stock photo libraries are full of them, but cloud and sky images are always oh so popular, so I´ll post this one here:

This web site will be from now on (as the domain name says) about ROYALTY FREE IMAGES. The these days commonly used term “royalty free” refers to a rather broad range of stock image license models which all have in common that once the usage is paid for (normally when the picture is purchased) no additional fees apply. Each stock photo agency may have its own terms and conditions, which should be studied before purchasing an image, but generally, royalty free photos are priced simply by file size rather than usage. The utilization history of such a stock photograph is difficult to track, which can be a disadvantage if the image is supposed to be a key part of the design, like in commercial applications and advertisement, but if this is no issue, royalty free images deliver enormous freedom to designers, as they can be used as background textures, page elements and illustrations again and again (some restrictions may apply with some stock agencies), so creating your own collection or photo library over time can make your design business more efficient and hassle-free.
To start this web site, I will provide some FREE ROYALTY-FREE IMAGES. Download them and use them in your designs, blogs or wherever (but please don´t re-sell or re-distribute the photos themselves) – don´t forget to link here or at least mention the source in exchange.
Here´s the first picture, a close-up photograph of a colorful brick wall:
