I'm looking to find high resolution images of European soccer stars in
action shots and games. In particular I am looking for Arsenal squad
players, however I assume that any site providing one player would
likely provide a multitude of them.

I am defining high resolution as upwards of 1000 pixels wide or high.

I will be using the photos for art, prints, and desktop wallpapers.  I
will be modifying them for appearance as digital art.

I have looked at some stock and press photo companies but one image
can cost upwards of $1000 dollars.  I would be willing to pay for the
images for up to $50 if it suits my needs.

I have also tried several google searches, as well as google images,
but only to find images that are smaller in size.  Most of the images
I am finding are less than 500 pixels in one dimension, and therefore
won't scale or print very well.

I'm looking for an answer that contains a website with up to date
press photos from matches that can be purchased one-off or on a
subscription basis.  Alternatively, any free sites with high
resolution images would also do.

Hi gunnerrific,

Two choices are:


Allstar Picture Library

You can search both of them to see what's available.  (They both have
numerous Arsenal photos.)  You can then contact them to ask about
conditions for use of images and to purchase images.

Please let me know if you need clarification of this answer.

My advice,
get an HD TV Tuner Card with a PVR; then record some games and grab
your own screen shots. (or transfer them off your TIVO and create some
