  • Photos for Class - Finding Creative Commons images through a CC Search is a good option for students. But getting students to attribute those photos correctly can add time to the work exponentially. Photos for Class removes that hassle. It automatically adds a black ribbon across the bottom of the image with the appropriate attribution.
  • Google Advanced Image Search - Under Usage, choose - "free to use and modify". Be sure to credit the image for example, the image to the right is by Frits Ahlefeldt and is credited here.
  • Pics4Learning - A library of images donated by students, teachers, photographers. Permission to use AND citation information right under the picture!
  • WPClipart - All images are public domain. While originally created for Word Processing and printing, they work well as web images.
  • Wikimedia Commons - Many thousands of images. Scroll down under full sized image to see the particular licensing for this particular image. Almost all require attribution; some, but only a few do not allow derivative works (which means you can't edit the picture.)
