http://www.web-source.net/
  --> free ebooks for web development and site traffic management varied topics from business to marketing to internet, etc

http://www.effex-media.com --> free html templates and logos with psd, good for newbies and also for professionals

http://www.sitepoint.com  --> free sample chapters from web development and marketing kits, php, mysql, css, flash, etc., also offers free newsletters. Sample chapters from web design business kit has insights for budding freelancers or business startups, requires lengthy reading though

http://www.catalystworkflow.com/  --> free download for textsizer, downloader, and portfolio manager. nice thing is it is $ambo compatible, some are hacks some are  in java

more later. hope it helps  ;) ;D

http://www.iStockPhoto.com - a community website that features royalty-free stock photos, $1 for a lowres copy (it used to be $0.50). they also offer flash animations and vector illustrations. if the client has enough budget to buy stock photos, i come here because it's cheaper than comstock or any other fee-based stock photo sites.

http://www.sxc.hu - for clients without budget to acquire stock photos, i come to this site. the quality of photos is not the same as the abovementioned site but some are gems (you just have to find "the needle in a haystack") through a mix-match of search keywords. for commercial use, you will have to ask for permission to the photographer (if you ask nicely, they allow you to use it on your client's website).

http://www.designsbydarren.com - Downloadable free Photoshop web design templates (terms and conditions apply, so read before downloading any template and using it for your clients' sites).

@Dragon, Thanks for the great resource you've posted! I will definitely be hopping between those links.

@franco, mourgeFile is a great resource as well. Hmmnnn.... maybe we could start something like that here in the Philippines. A collection of photos ( CC Licensed by-attribution 2.5 ) all Filipinos can use.

Everyone, if there's anything like that in PH please post the link. It's a worthwhile project if no one has started it yet. We can definitely gather support for such site.

its not actually a software but a site that will convert your image into a ".ico" for your *ambo favicon.ico check the site.. all in there! no need to use powerful softwares for making ".ico" formats.

Thanks pareng Guilliam sa mga papuri.

Eniweiz, may ginagawa na akong layout ng Mambo template kanina. Ang kaso biglang nawalan ng kuryente. Hindi ko pa naman na-save! After 30mins nagkaroon kaso tinamad na ako. Kaya naisip kong PSD nalang kasi mas madali gawin. Hehehe!

Pero hayaan ninyo.. gagawa rin ako. Kayo na bahala mag-enhance..
