Free images

This is a list of resources to find copyright free to use images.

We have this article - - on our Technology Services website to help people find images they’d like to use on their projects.  Our webmaster found it a few years ago and we thought it was a good resource for our campus.  We just tell people to watch out for the ads because they could be for paid services not the free ones talked about within the article.

Hello Khendum,
Check out – on this site artists upload images for copyright free use and it provides a method to ‘thank’ the artists with an optional donation.

Hello LTDC friends,
I am currently designing an online readiness tutorial using Adobe Captivate and looking to find good images for the interactions. Any recommendation on a place (apart from Shutterstock and Adobe Images) where I can buy stock images for a reasonable rate?
Thank you.
