Best place to find sports photos

Postby cobbs87 » Fri Apr 10, 2009 11:39 am

I'm getting decent with Gimp and I'm just wondering, what sites do you guys go to for your sports photos. Small ones are easier to come by for sigs and avatars, but how about bigger scale photos for wallpapers and such.

During the season http://www.cbssports.com/mlb/photos is my main source for pics. Here's a trick to make the photos larger provided you're using firefox.

Right-click the image and choose 'view image'.

You'll usually get something like this as your url: http://images.cbssports.com/u/ap/photos ... _lower.jpg This will produce this pic:

To get it enlarged replace the 'lower' of the original url with '1024x768'. This should be your url now http://images.cbssports.com/u/ap/photos ... 24x768.jpg which will give you this

I usually check it often and save a few pics as they don't stay on the site long since they're game photos. flickr.com also has nice photos.
