Finding images which are FREE to use or SHARE

Here are two sites which are very useful for finding free images.

 

The first is Google Image Search.
Simply go to Google search and select IMAGE. Then type in the search term for the image you want – here I put in BOOKS. Screen shot 2013-04-08 at 2.34.20 PM
Then go to the right hand side of the screen and click on the COG icon

Select Advance Search. On the new screen right at the bottom of the page where it says usage rights, use the downward arrowhead and select “free to use or share” All your images searches for that session will be images where the creator has given permission to use their image publicly.

The second if Flickr’s Compfight
Simply type in the word for the image you want and then check you have selected “Creative commons”

REMEMBER to acknowledge your sources – you need to cite your images using the citation method your teacher asks of you. If you do not know how then ask Mrs Bond. All images you use that are not your own need to have an attribution.
