Earlier today the team at Intilecta were talking about where to get stock images from. The obvious candidates being Clipart, online collections, creating them ourselves… My contribution to the conversation, that I was surprised no one knew about, was the Image Library that ships with Visual Studio 2005. If you go to C:Program FilesMicrosoft Visual Studio 8Common7VS2005ImageLibrary there is a zip file VS2005ImageLibrary.zip which when expanded gives you a selection of sock images and icons of various resolution. This is a great starting point for simple applications!
