How to Get the Best Free Images on the Web

by Converstations

Want to know where you can get awesome pictures of cats wearing night vision goggles to put on your company blogwithout breaking the law? It’s possible!

Run down this checklist whenever you’re searching for images:

  1. Don’t use Google Images
  2. Use Flickr Creative Commons
  3. Smile at the Camera-type (Mike Sansone at ConverStations suggests looking at the camera with which the image was taken just to be sure it is the author’s own)
  4. Give Attribution

My favorite is the site PhotoRee. Searching Flickr for interesting images can be a pain, but for some reason, PhotoRee has the best of the best at the top. Just be sure to select Creative Commons in the drop-down menu to the right of the search bar.
