Lots of excellent images were uploaded to freeimageslive this year making it hard to whittle down the selection to the 25 we've included in this post. The images here were selected for several reasons, technical merit, usefulness as stock photos, and in some cases just an emotional response they generated.
We'd like to thank all those who uploaded images this year, and wish everyone all the best for 2013!
As for the most popular images of the year, well those continue to be the textures, backgrounds and simple object and concept images (frankly a little dull to be honest!) but our image uses certainly find those the most useful.
Blogs are a place where site users can highlight their favourite images, share tips and ideas, or explain in detail the ideas behind their work.
