In both our professional and our personal lives, it is good to know where we can get free and interesting images to spice up a presentation or to use in the family’s annual Christmas letter.
There are a couple of tools that help out with your search:
GazoPa Similar Image Search: This is a new image search service that searches for similar features, still in beta, but it looks promising.
(Also, if you like this check out: Gwap’s Squigl)
- Has a creative commons setting (see advanced search)
- Now includes “similar images” below some picture (try “Eiffel Tower”)
- Allows you to search by image type (click on “Show options”)
Images Canada: Allows for non-commercial use of their pictures
- Don’t forget to just search Flickr’s Commons for good images without copyright restrictions.
Stock.xchng: Make sure you scroll down to the second row of image results, for the free results.
Free Digital Photos.net : Use of images requires acknowledgment of the host site.
What other sources do you guys use?
