Presenting professional photos becomes a daily basic need with web designing or blog writing nowadays. Picking up photos from Free stock photos is easy, but normally they come with restrictions of back links or limitations for printing purposes. To get high-quality photos with more privileges and fewer worries, you should choose premium stock photo resoruces.
We create Joomla templates and Joomla extensions. These products need to be present for high-quality images to look more beautiful and lively. Therefore, sometimes I collect popular resources of great images and make comparisons between them to find out the best places to buy photos.
If you want to know what I have done and what flavors you can add to your website, let’s have a look on this article. It includes two parts:
Part 1: Top five royalty-free premium stock photo resources review.

If you're non-photographers, I know for sure that you, designers or bloggers, are in need of free images for your websites, brochures or blogs most of the time. I understand it perfectly as I am not a photographer either. This means we hate having to look for images uploaded by other photographers.
In this post, I will share with you some good sources for free stock photos. You can use them in whatever format you like; but remember that you should be careful in regard to copyright laws when you choose images. According to the Berne Convention, a photo is copyrighted from the moment it is taken. When the photo is uploaded onto a website and you happen to fall in love with it, then want to use it in your own product, you must cite the photographer’s name and the source.
Here are a few good free stock photos that I've collected. These free image sources usually cooperate with commercial image sites as advertising channels. That's why there are some fee-required images inserted in free image sites at times. You need pay attention to this in order to avoid being directed to somewhere else. No worries,in this article I will advise you of the sources that partner-up with commercial image sites.

Mosets Tree is a directory component for Joomla! You can use Mosets Tree to run a complex Yahoo! style directory directly inside your Joomla website. Mosets Tree is designed to handle any data that requires a directory structure such as a business directory, links directory or scripts directory. Because Mosets Tree runs on Joomla!, you have infinite possibilities to include more features to your website by using third party extensions from Joomla! Extensions Directory.
Mosets Tree is the directory extension that powers Joomla! Extensions Directory. These guys have been extremely excited to be working with the Joomla! Team to develop JED. Every feature you see in the Extensions Directory is available in Mosets Tree, except for a few customizations that are specific to Extensions Directory.
If you've heard of the Joomla Extensions Directory (JED) in one of our blog posts and had a look at it, you will find that a great number of new Joomla 1.7 extensions have been releasing every day by developers across the globe.

Since the birth of the first version of Joomla CMS, the permission system has had serious limitations for Joomla! Users. The permission system is implemented by the access control list (ACL). With a new Joomla 1.7 ACL you are able to define who has permission to do what on the website, to login, access, create, edit or delete the content. With the release of Joomla 1.7 the ACL is much more sophisticated. In this article I'll give you a detailed explanation what the ACL is and how it can help you in customization of User Groups. For a better understanding of the great value of the ACL in this article you will see a comparison between Joomla 1.5 and Joomla 1.7.
An understanding of the ACL includes 3 important concepts: User Groups, Access Level and Permission. Let's take a closer look at the purpose and functionality of each of these.
