There's no doubt that I like to design. Next to coding, I also love to edit photos, designing websites etc. My personal favorite tool to achieve this, has to be Adobe Photoshop. Next to a good tool, you'll need some good resources. Fonts, Plug-ins such as Brushes and Textures, Stock photos can help you tremendously when designing. Here's a list of my personal favorite photoshop design resources.
Fonts, Stock Photos, Patterns, some Textures and Inspiring sites do not require Photoshop. Also, always check the compatibility of the plug-in with your software; Don't download Photoshop CS3 brushes when you're using Photoshop 7. The other way around (Photoshop 7 plug-in using in Photoshop CS3) can be possible.
If you think that there's a top-source missing from the list, share it with us by posting them in the comments. The sites listed here offer their services for free and are placed in random order.
