T3: Finding Images Online

Sparklers, by Kelley Bozarth

Looking for images? Make sure you don’t violate copyright!

  • Free Photos Bank: This site has a nice collection of free photos available for download without login. They’re extensively categorized with a few different ways to search, too.
  • IM Free: Unlike most free image sources, IM Free offers a curated collection of free resources, all cleared for commercial use too. Search for a keyword or browse through categories.

As always, you can use Google’s Advanced Image SearchUse the advanced search options and change the Usage Rights to whatever you need (most likely, “free to use or share”).

You can check out this past blog post for more image sites and also this blog by social media manager Buffer.
