      Thanks Dean. Good get!
      Yep, I considered including Pixabay (and several others) for the list. But settled on more niche resources with an artistic and quirky slant for this post.
      Pixabay certainly has a large number of images and plenty of corporate images too. It has already made the cut for a future post with a more corporate focus.
