Picture Monkey

One of the most time consuming things I find in the run up to a client presentation is gathering all the relevant images to bring the ideas to life. Often the images you use to get your thinking over the line, can have a significant influence in selling in an idea. Everyone has their share of favorite stock image sites to help crystallise their idea. Some stock imagery however, is so bland and generic that all images sourced are highly unbelievable.

Flickr's related word site is one of the best sites I've come across to source interesting imagery and make the process fun along the way. With a contemporary black portal, you type in a word and a wheel of related words appear in your screen. The good thing is the images are sourced directly from flickr, so you're sourcing real people's photographs from around the world.
