Picjumbo is a fantastic service that offers stock photographs, absolutely free of charge, for use in commercial and personal projects. Recognizing the need for quality stock resources for web designers, but unhappy with the premium price tag many stock sites add, Viktor Hanacek, began Picjumbo on Nov 2013 and he’s adding high-quality photos every day. Viktor has generously decided to provide all of his current 44 photos as a simple download to WebdesignerDepot readers.

A little while back when I asked if I should consider doing a course on How to design Soft Toys, there were a few people who were interested in knowing how I go about designing softies… so I thought I’d give you a bit of insight! Having a 3-D object like an ornament helps me to get an idea of the 3-D shapes I want to make. This is probably THE most important part of the whole toy pattern design process, well it is for ME! I love this cute fleece dragon pattern designed by one of my favourite toy designers, Mariska Vos-Bolman from DIY Fluffies in the Netherlands. Another favourite soft toy designer and friend of mine is Jeniffer Carson who has to be THE actual queen of dragon pattern design!
The whole point of this blog post was because I need help with the MOST IMPORTANT PART of a the toy pattern design process – CHOOSING a name! IF you choose the winning name – you will win a copy of the Dragon Pattern when it is released!!!! I think a great dragon name would be Delilah well the face that it seems to have is a Delilah … I’m so excited about this pattern as I love dragons!!!
I promised I would post more royalty free images at the beginning of the week, so, it?s Monday and here we are. Environmental themes are still gaining popularity in publishing, and if stock images like this one are liked, I will provide more material of that kind. These bokeh textures are not Photoshop-created, but selects from out-of-focus areas of images taken with some really nice lenses (indeed, several were photographed extra for that purpose). Time to post again here, and as I found in my image library more dark backgrounds, here they are. Boletus, actually, absolutely delicious when fresh from the forest (and in most parts of the world rather rare Delicatessen).
Dark backgrounds are always popular among graphic designers, and grunge textures can add some interesting patterns to website backgrounds, so here a set of royalty free images of this kind.
Note: No sharpening applied to these photos, as you may want to decide the necessary amount yourself. Some people seem to have wondered if they can download royalty free images for commercial use as well here, so I added such permission explicitly to the license conditions. You may download these stock photos as well for commercial use (I?d like to keep the restrictions as minimal as possible, after all that?s the idea behind royalty free, but if you somehow can, please do mention or link to this site as the image source).
Come join 150,000+ followers on my Pinterest Boards, where I pin my favorite creative ideas! We grant you a free royalty-free license to download and use these pictures on your websites, blogs and in designs, however copyright is not transferred. Not because we're cheap but often because video production costs can spiral out of control if you're not careful.Here's a list of available resources on the web for royalty free media including images, video, music and more.
Once in a while we come across a freebie that makes all the searching worthwhile, and we’re really excited to have found this great new stock images site.
What really sets Picjumbo apart is that you’re welcome to use the images in themes, making this an invaluable resource for template designers.
The download link will be sent to you by email, or if you have already subscribed, the download will begin immediately. Then I collect ideas over time, which can be from anything from gift cards to small ornaments. The colours are soooooooooooooooooo ugly BUT I loved the idea of a sleepy dragon and the tail over her nose is too sweet!
So a big part of my dragon pattern research was looking at other people’s dragon pattern designs! Well, because it’s cheap, and this is important as I can sometimes make many many versions of a design until I am 100% happy that it is cute enough to put out for people to pay for! Well, because it helps me to visualize the 3-D shapes when I compare the shape of the toy to the flat 2-D paper pattern pieces I drew. I think D’artagnan would be a good name for a dragon (u could call him Dart for short).
Most folks coming to this website are graphic designers and need to feed their projects – as a reminder, these are stock photos for commercial use, too, so don?t be afraid and download the images (just give credit or a link wherever you can). While pleasant blur quietly makes much for the aesthetic quality of a stock photo, bokeh textures are really easy material to get some pretty backgrounds in all sorts of designs from, so I thought I give you a few here.

Distribution or resale of the images themselves is not permitted, especially not through stock photo related sites. Now just because it is 'royalty free' does not mean that the media will be completely free.There are so many sites out there that I could not possibly take a deep look into them all so this is purely informative and in no way an endorsement for the sites listed. I wanted to make sure that my dragon looks NOTHING like ANYTHING I have seen and ALSO, because a lot of my friends are toy designers, I don’t want my designs to be similar to their creations! That’s why I decided to make my dragon completely different and so mine will be a lying down dragon!

Maybe I'll start up a Royalty Free Text archive and start selling text en masse as I write it.
I think that text is one of those things that needs a little more customization than images do. Going to 10 sites and seeing the same text, would probably make you think they are all the same company.
