Finding quality images online to use that do not infringe on copyright is a challenge if we just use a basic Google search.
It is important that we know how to refine a Google image search to find images that are labelled for reuse, plus refine images by:
- Size – go for large so the images look good.
- Colour – B&W, transparent, full colour
- Type – photo, clip art, drawing, animated
- Time – today, last week or a custom range – great for looking for images published online just recently or perhaps back in 1999!
There are many sites that offer free images - Pixabay is my favourite. It has a free image library that has beautiful, high resolution images and illustrations that are free to use without any attribution.
Other sites to check out include:
