    Someone already mentioned it, but I really like 123rf.com, which isn't in your poll. The prices are a little lower than istock, but the quality is almost as good. They seem to have something perfect no matter what I search for.

    I like 123rf.com; they have a section for free photos/images, and their prices seem reasonable.

    The photos do seem primarily from Europe, though, so there's a bit of a slant in the way the keywords find photos, some of the signs, or other cultural aspects, but it's interesting to see that.

    I use iStockphoto when I need an image for my projects. They have a wide range of free and paid images. Very nice images, straightforward license and affordable royalty fees.

    Our company publishes books written by kids, and we use iStockPhoto for just about all of our covers. They seem to have an endless sea of quality images, pricing is reasonable (around $5 for most of the images we use), license terms are sensible, and their advanced search feature includes color and text-placement areas which make it easier for us to zero in on an appropriate cover shot.

    I use stock.xchng for most of my photo requirements. I like the ease-of-use and the fact that they have really good quality images.
