As a small web developer I have found it increasingly difficult to find content, especially pictures (photos and graphics) to use in designing my clients websites. Most of my clients are small businesses without deep corporate pockets, and I try to give them the most bang for their buck.
Lately, it seems, there are so many copyright infringement issues that I must put the 'fear of god' into my clients to provide images that are either licensed or copyright free... hard to find these days, even for the search queen (me).
I have an idea to create a site where developers can upload their OWN amateur photography and have access to the photos and content of other developers for use in website development.
With the advent of digital photography, there are lots of folks with extensive collections of their own work (very nice work, too) that are appropriate for using in site design.
The only requirement for membership would be to upload your content, agree to allow others to use it free of charge, and if you use content from the site, you should provide a 'credit' and perhaps a link back to the site.
My question is, if this resource was available, how many of you would take advantage of it?
