icons/buttons - where do you get yours?

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for new little icons for my site (arrows, boxes, pointers, etc).  I've done google image searches but I'm still not coming up with anything good.  Where do you guys get your stuff (that you don't make)?

this is a good one for little icons and flags, more suited to toolbars, etc:

this one is particularly excellent - there are literally HUNDREDS in all sizes and formats as a single package:

as long as you don't mind giving credit somewhere in your site/app where you use them, I doubt you'll need to look elsewhere for icons.

cheers

no worries  ;) - took me ages to find them first time around, so i know how hard it is to find good icons that don't cost...

very cool. all the icons i've used i've had friends draw up for me, so having a resource like that is very nice

yeah i've always just drawn little icons myself. Maybe those linkies will save me some time in the future.

You could always find something that's been GPL'd and use the icons from that. I'm not sure if you have to do something to maintain the GPLness of the thing, though.

yeah that's a good move too. i used to do that a lot. the only problem though is that there tends to be a limited number of icons in the package, and they tend to be application specific - so when your own site/app needs something different, getting another icon that 'matches' in terms of its style, use of colours, etc, is quite tricky unless you can draw them yourself. however, if it's just for a case of a few icons like arrows/boxes/pointers like ober was after, using GPL'd stuff is good.
