Running a forum or developing a new social network? You’ll need images to use with your new system. While there’s no lack of alternatives on the market, why paying anything at all for something you’re going to use for your personal social network?
Ready-made icons are the fastest, easiest and most affordable alternative to ordering your graphics from a design studio. While not all stock images are created equal, the licensing policies of their suppliers also vary. Sometimes you are hit with royalty payments, and sometimes stringent licensing agreements are there to restrict your right to use your purchase. There are, however, alternatives that cost you nothing.
Leaning towards bloggers and application developers, Aha-Soft offers something for nothing with its Free 3D Social Icons. Available to all webmasters, Web developers and Internet users, these images are absolutely free and come with no strings attached. No licensing restrictions, no royalties, no backlinks and no ads in your product or blog are required.
