Does anyone know where to get images so you can put them on your website without worrying about copyright? Like i dont care if i have to have a picture with a watermark of "whoever.com" on there. Thanks in advance!
Good clarification from andye -- You want copyright free, not just royalty free. And if an image isn't copyright free, using it with the watermark or whatever doesn't make it okay--it just lets people know where you copied it from.
My favorite site offers copyright free images, but does require you to have a (fairly inexpensive) membership in order to download them.
leliphent, where are the copyright-free and royalty-free photographs on deviantart? I see a whole lot of photos by individual photographers, but no indication whatsoever that any of these works are free for the taking.
Is there a royalty/copyright-free photography area on the site? If so, where is it?
A good source of free photographic images are the websites of national (Federal? - I'm in the UK) government departments in the USA. If you have a good search on their sites you will find there is usually a photo library tucked away somewhere. Invariably images (often supplied high and low res) are for non-commercial use and (quite rightly) require a credit be given. The point is, they are free.
