    29. Wigflip – Wigfip allows you to generate various graphics with your own text on them

    30. Uncle Sam’s Photos – More free to use photos from the US Government

    31. Hassle Free Clip Art – Large selection of cartoons and clip art

    32. NOAA – Lots of landscapes and nature photos from NOAA

  2. Hey Rahul,
    Thanks for sharing this nice list.

    I’ve been using freedigitalphotos.net for one year. And I love their pictures.

    When it comes to make blog post attractive, using picture is the best thing to do. BTW recently I’ve watched a Youtube video of Matt Cutts where he told that we can use copyright free images and it won’t hurt SEO.

    Cheers
