New Places To Find Free Images

Free Images“A picture is worth a thousand words” and in the modern digital world, it is certainly truer than ever before.

Today pictures are used to quickly express our thoughts to other people, either through our own efforts with our digital cameras and cell phone, or the easier method of finding new places to find free images. We use images in our creative work online and off. Many images are used daily in websites, blogs, advertising, business cards, newsletters, and even in videos and email.

The popularity of images can be dated back to Freudian days when Freud first used images to discover a patients type of mental illness. Freud also discovered that an image can mean a lot of different things to different people, so images represent a wide perception of our visual interpretations.

Finding new places to find free images can be a time consuming and often lead us to frustration when we can not source what we need.

Of, course there is always the option of purchasing images, which is the best method, as you own the license to the image, unlike free images that can be removed from public domain sources and back to private leaving you in copyright violations.

Even though your photos are free, you can still be polite and give attribution to the artist who is responsible for the beautiful images on your site or link back to the original site where you found the photo by adding a link to it.

Update:

A site by Micheal Brennan of Pikwizard featuring over 100,000 new photos for your viewing pleasure.  Micheal’s site also includes a very nifty photo editor, so you can design a special photo for sharing online with your friends.  It is not necessary for you to have an account before downloading a photo, but to be polite you should.  Please also remember to provide attribution to the photographer or to the site the photo came from.  The photos are free, and we would like owners like Michael to continue their sites as a free service to us.  Pay a visit to Pikwizard today, I think you will really like the site a whole bunch.

  1. It is lots of fun producing my own images, but sometimes it is not convenient so having some good resources to check out is really great for me, thanks
