Stock photo sites are all the rage online. If you are doing any kind of visual marketing online or offline, you have probably seen some of these yourself such as IstockPhoto, DepositPhotos and the likes.
But sometimes you just need more than a stock image of a businessman holding a business card against an office background. You might need the picture of just the businessman, without the background so that you can integrate it to your design.
Now of course you can remove the background manually using your preferred image editor or Youzign, but if you like to save time (and who does not) here are some free sources for free isolated photos online!
