  • ZooTool is my favorite! It does a lot of other stuff too but it’s great for grabbing images from the web.

  • Wow! This an amazing and very helpful resource for me. I have been looking for this for months..I only knew Visualize.us and Weheartit. Thank you so much for this great list.

  • Quite surprised ZooTool isn’t on here actually. There are some great choices though.

  • Can

    http://inspire.2ia.pl/ is not on the list, but my favorit site πŸ™‚

  • eyesoak.com – pretty new, but it aggregates several image bookmarking services into 1 place. The only thing I didn’t like about it was the timing – it updates so very often that it’s almost impossible to keep up with it. Anyway, I try to visit it from time to time, but my all time favorites are still yay and ffffound. πŸ™‚

    No Designspiration? No Zootool? No Pineterest? Also, i think Forrst, and Dribble don’t belong here. Not really image bookmarking sites. More like “Here’s what i made. Now stroke my ego.” Puke.
