HQ Wallpapers

There are oodles of sites offering beautiful images to use in your designs.  However, most charge to purchase the rights.  There are a few choice sites where you can find really nice images that are indeed royalty free.  Just remember to acknowledge the author/photographer for the work they have done.  You can do this either in the caption area of WordPress (as I have done above with the HQ Wallpapers) OR in an area that cannot be seen by the public, such as the title of the picture in WordPress.  If you do not have an author’s name, make sure to note the website you took the image from.  I recommend doing either one just in case someone claims you have used an image that may not be royalty free.  Then you will have a source for the image that you can fall back on.  You can always apologize and offer to remove the image if a mistake has been made.

Here are a couple of nice sites to go to:

Links to Beautiful WordPress Themes

Even though WordPress has over 1,700 themes in their database to choose from, there are a number of other websites out there that offer some very stylized WordPress compatiable themes that are worth looking at and certainly worth the price.  Here are some of my favorites:
