One of the biggest tasks we have at MakeUseOf is finding images for our articles. You see, we don’t have a separate staff of five hundred photojournalists who travel all over the world for us and take photographs to complement our articles. There isn’t a VR studio at the MakeUseOf online office where photogs can set up lengthy holo-sessions with professional models. No, dear readers. We have to find these images for ourselves.
Contrary to popular belief, pictures found on Google Images are not free to use any way you want. Google have implemented a search filter that will show you the images which are legal to use.
Finding a great photo isn’t that hard. Using that perfect photo can also come without sweat and cost. The five sources here ease your hunt because you simply subscribe to them with an email.
There are lots of reasons you might need to find Creative Commons images. Last year, we introduced you to five great places to find Creative Commons images, with the list including heavyweights like Flickr and Google Image Search, along with a few more services you might not have heard of. Today we’re updating that list, and adding 5 more services that take the hard work out of finding Creative Commons images.
