Hi All

Do you have any real estate images that is yours ?

Royalty free stock real estate images ?

Why ? Need them to design more free templates for Open Realty.
If so post them here.

A big thank you from
Al

actually... not a bad idea overall for a new Forum... Template Resources or something similar... a place to post graphics and images for all to use or links to places that provide them for free.....

Mick, maybe you have better keys to VBulletin than I do.. I tried to create a "Templates" forum for v2.0 awhile back and don't seem to have the necessary ones.

Yeah me either.. despite the cool "Administrator" title I don't seem to be able to do anything other than moderate things from the admin panel

Its a good idea to have a hole bunch of images to work from, save us countless amonunt of time searching around trying to find rolatly free stuff to use

Someone needs to go on a mission finding a hole bunch of free pictures relateing to homes, real estate, buss poeple etc, of use to us in designing templates, it whould be good to have a place in one location for easy access as well

Why not add a section to a site where users can add pictures they find, might be usefull for real estate design in the future.

I'd be glad to install Coppermine Photo Gallery, I have up to 3GB of storage where I am hosted. The only problem is it will be something that you will have to log on to as opposed to a thread on this forum.
Let me know if you think it is worth it...Bill

Hi, If you buy a template from templatemonster, you get access to lots of quality photos

If you click my template link below, for a low sign up fee, all the templates are then free and you have access to lots of photos

Check it out

I use istockphoto.com. their credits are only a buck a piece and if you spend $100 then you get 125 credits.
i have only seen a very limited number of peope who actually make templates for OR, although i am sure there are many more that do not post that often. I would be willing to donate with a few of the other OR Template designers andbuy some credits. As I am sure that the rest of you have server space I would be wiling to allow the posting of ISTOCK PHOTOS to a domain hosted on my servers. If this sounds like something that some of you would like to do let me know and I will set up coppermine or something for all of us to get to the photos.

Anyway Istock is royalty free and here are their photo counts

Total files 232750
Waiting approval 8226
Oldest in queue 5 days
Gigabytes yesterday 69.00

I have done a search on all real estate related images and their search returned 5600+ and that doesn't include business people!!

Let me know, if 4 of us do this it is only $25 a piece and we can get 125 800 x 600 photos

I have tons of pictures of business people. I own two CD sets of Herma Photo Objects. Here is a sample of a few
http://www.graphicsoupdesign.com/sample.jpg

They have tranparent backgrounds, they come in a .tiff file and when you open it in photshop you can click on the alpha channel in Photohop and grab the object or person and place them over any color.

Unfortunately there are not houses on the disks, it is mostly people or objects.

I think a gallery would be the best place to upload and download pics, that way they can be catagorized and their would be no size limit and we would not have to make thumbnails as the gallery program would make the thumbsfor us. Put how to upload tiffs so people can grab them is that possible. I don't think I would have time to make thumbnails of all the pictures and on the disk I have hundres of business people and may have objects that wil be useful like money etc...

Ok this will be useful, a few matching sets of icons. It is hard to find matching icon sets for free, but I have a method of taking any free icons you may find on the web and turning them into a matched set for your website templates.
I have made up four sets for download (.psd files) and you can find instructions on how to make them here.

I found these icons on this free site
http://www.gifanimations.com/action/MenuSelection?group=2&parent=38
I have been looking for more free icon sites that have nice web icons for free but they are hard to find, I will keep looking. This link had the best ones so far.
