Tech Tuesday: Locating “Free” Images

imagesYou may have noticed that we credit iStockPhoto.com frequently for the images that we post on the FLC blog. These photos are high quality, but come at a cost. If your budget doesn’t allow you to purchase photos and clipart there are still photo and clipart repositories where you can find free images.

However, be careful. “Free” doesn’t always mean “no strings attached.” Always read the fine print to see if you need to give a photo credit or link back to the website or artist with the original art. And be careful, just because your browser tells you something is license free, doesn’t mean that it is.

The following link from The Edublogger lists numerous sites you can explore to find images for your course or project: http://www.theedublogger.com/2014/07/09/the-ultimate-directory-of-free-image-sources/.
