Best Stock Photos of 2012

Submitted by gratuit on 31 December, 2012 - 15:16

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!
