Stock.XCHNG is under new management! Getty Images is proud to now wholly-own the world’s best free stock site. SXC has a long history and a great community, and we’re excited to grow with this unique site. We also have lots of expertise and experience to offer as industry leaders.
What does it mean to SXC users?
We’re committed to making all the files in the SXC collection safe and reliable, ensuring that any time you use a file from here, it’s with confidence.
The technology team behind iStockphoto, the world’s number one microstock site, will keep SXC fast, stable and secure. In fact, we’ve upgraded much of the hardware recently, and done a full security audit.
SXC will be part of a strong family of companies, meaning lots of opportunities for members at our brother and sister sites.
Most of all though, we want to keep doing all the things that have already made SXC the success it is, and see it continue to grow and thrive.
We’d also like to thank Peter, András, and their staff for the many years of dedication that helped make this such a great place. We wish them well in their future ventures.

Image After is a large online free photo collection. You can download and use any image or texture from our site and use it in your own work, either personal or commercial.
In the imageafter.com ‘image’ directory you can expect free high resolution images of objects, places, animals, mechanics, insects, signs, circuits and plants etc. All stock photos can be freely downloaded and used in you commercial or personal works. The size of the images range from 1600×1200 to 2560×1920. Although some images are fit for wallpaper on your desktop, most images are raw unprocessed and sometimes even out of focus. This is done deliberately.
We could never determine what images are usefull or not for your projects. All images are in jpg or jpeg format. We do not recompress the images anymore. The way you see them thats the way they came out of our nikon digital cameras. However we did not made all the images on the site.
Currently only a small part of our collection is madeup by donations from visitors. This amount wil certainly grow in the future. People who donate images agreed to give up their rights to the images and that the images are theirs to give away.
