I also like istockphoto.com — very reasonable for pricing. I’ve heard Blue Vertigo is a good place to start as well.

Some other ones I used to keep track of — several of which are NOT free — as well as some potentially interesting/helpful sites to you — are:

Adobe Museum of Digital Media announces new exhibition: John Maeda: Atoms + Bits = the neue Craft (ABC) — from finance.yahoo.com

New exhibit coming up at the Adobe Museum

.

SAN JOSE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)– The Adobe Museum of Digital Media (www.adobemuseum.com) is pleased to announce its second exhibition, John Maeda: Atoms + Bits = the neue Craft (ABC), on view March 23 to Dec. 31, 2011. The exhibition is a digital representation of Maeda, president of the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), leading an interactive lecture on how artists are connecting the worlds of digital creativity and analog (or handcrafted) creativity. Titled Atoms + Bits = the neue Craft (ABC), the lecture underscores the mission of the AMDM to provide an interactive venue for presenting digital media works as well as providing a forum for expert commentary on how digital media influences culture and society.

According to Maeda, “Computers let us imagine digitally what we once could only validate by handcraft in physical form – the infinite malleability and reusability of bits have forever changed the creative process. But just as it took Icarus to first imagine human flight by carefully observing how birds can fly, digital tools have relied on many of the original tools and media used by artists in the pre-digital world.” Maeda sees the thread that runs between the tools of physical art making – such as pens, brushes and pigment – and the way new media has co-opted many of the same tools to manipulate bits in digital art. Through the exhibition, he examines the history of linking analog and digital creativity within his own work and the works of others.

Smartpen app turns paper into digital drawing tablet

You can now draw virtual lines on your computer screen at the same time as you scribble them on paper.

A new smartpen app called Paper Tablet gives the Livescribe Echo smartpen some of the functionality of a dedicated graphics tablet, letting you write on the computer screen in real time and add manuscript text to files already on your computer.

“The essence of our business is the capture, access and sharing of written and spoken information,” Livescribe CEO Jim Marggraff told Wired: “We happen to have this tool in the form of a pen, but it’s really about capture, access and sharing.”
