It has been almost a year since I published my first training tutorial in how to find free images for websites and I thought it was time to publish another with more links to different sources. And feel free to Right Click on any pictures I use in this tutorial because they are all 100 PERCENT FREE to use as you see fit. A couple of them I snapped myself, like this first one.

WHAT KIND OF IMAGES ARE FREE
I often see many members looking for a way to use images found on Google. Sadly people really need to look elsewhere because the majority of images posted on Google are NOT free to use and most are copyrighted. Fortunately there are many website resources of free pictures and clip art, the problem is finding the correct ones.
Well worry not my WA family because I have done all of the hard work of researching and I’m providing you all with 12 new links to picture and clip art websites. Though I still feel and use 4 of the 12 websites I featured in my first image training (Pixabay, Pexels, Skitterphoto, & Gratisography) these new websites offer an eclectic flavor of people and scenics from various countries, like the one below.
These image websites will be listed as all 4 of the Public Domain (PD) licensed image websites first and then the 8 slightly better Creative Commons Zero (CC0) licensed image websites next. Why do I consider CC0 slightly better than PD? Aren’t they both totally free to use without giving attribution to the original creator or website? They are but…
CC0 images are the most free to use the world over. Public Domain is totally free to use under copyright laws, however copyright laws are different in various parts of the world so what might be legal in the U.S. might be illegal someplace else. But when an image has the CC0 license it carries a more global effect, meaning it is legally free worldwide.NEXT UP = Public Domain Links and More FREE Pictures
