Would anyone know where I could find a royalty free 'virtual office' photo?

I am using a mobile internet connection and it will not allow me in to istock or other sites that may have 'adult content' ???

I need a photo for my website, but at this rate it will be a long time before I get one

      Thanks, but see above. It has 'adult' content and my connection will not allow me to access it.

    Hmm. Not sure if I am doing this wrong, but these images are all linked to sites and there is no link to istock, so I cannot buy one. I'm not looking to steal an image!

      try stock.xchng - the leading free stock photography site

      You will need to go to the bottom many times and hunt for the freebies.

      They are in there.

        Thanks. I will give it a try. I don't mind paying for one, or even having a custom one made, my connection just will not let me IN!!!

              Thanks, KJ.

              They also provide an explanation for their gruesome-sounding site name:

              "A morgue file is a place to keep post production materials for use of reference, an inactive job file. This morgue file contains free high resolution digital stock photography for either corporate or public use.


              The term "morgue file" is popular in the newspaper business to describe the file that holds past issues flats. Although the term has been used by illustrators, comic book artist, designers and teachers as well. The purpose of this site is to provide free image reference material for use in all creative pursuits. This is the world wide web's morguefile."

      Sounds as though your connection is just going to prevent access to any stock site. Maybe you could try downloading a program such as XHeaderPro (it's free). If I recall correctly, that comes with some built-in headers with images you could possibly modify. Just a thought.
