Sources of Images
As you know, you can't use just any image you find on the internet on your own website, because you are possibly violating someone else's copyright on that image. The safest bet is to use images you create yourself.
Fortunately, some sites offer images that you may be able on your website, sometimes by attributing the image, sometimes without. Among them are:
- Morgue File
- WikiMedia Commons
- Creative Commons
- Getty Images Image Source
- Getty Museum
- Open Clip Art
- Free Great Picture — photos and vector images
- Free Images
- Free Range Stock
- Free Photos Bank
- Good Free Photos — public domian photos
- IM Free
- Public Domain Pictures
- Stock Vault
- Ancestry Images
- Free Media Goo
- New Old Stock
- Wellcome Collection — Creative Commons licensed images.
- Libreshot — Images by Martin Vorel (Also by Martin: Minimal Photo
- Cute Stock Footage — Video, sound, filter, and image resources]
Note: Some of these sites require that you provide attribution or a link back to their site if you use one of their images. Also, their terms are liable to change at any time. Be sure to read the fine print.
