Adobe Stock Photos service to be discontinued

Adobe announced today that Adobe Stock Photos is being discontinued, effective April 1, 2008. I'm sorry to see this unique Web service go, as it integrated the Stock Photo search, comp, and purchasing experience seamlessly with Adobe Bridge, InDesign and Illustrator. More information and a utility for uninstalling the Adobe Stock Photos features from the Creative Suite can be found here.

This is a rip-off! Exactly where can I go to find free stock photos? I bought Adobe Bridge, Indesign CS3, and other Adobe products... They could at least keep a Web link dedicated to this... I am VERY disappointed with them and think they should refund monies for not providing this feature.

Adobe Stock Photos was NOT a source for FREE stock photos. Adobe was simply providing a service portal to other stock vendor's image collections, and providing a convenient way to browse, purchase and place those images on a page.
