Free Web Graphics: Where to Get Them (Legally!)

Free Stock Photos

Add Images, Photos, or Graphics to Your Lenses the Right Way

With all the clip art, free web graphics, and stock photography sites out there, it's easy to make your lenses and webpages look great without breaking copyright!

Some people think images posted on the web are up for grabs. They aren't, any more than beach towels on the beach. Other people think it's okay to take graphics if you're not making money with them. Nope! You still need permission.

Luckily, lots of generous people do let you use their pictures with no strings attached. Others just ask for credit and a link back in exchange.

Here's the places I go to get free graphics, stock photos, and images for my webpages.

My top go-to sites: Freeimages (Formerly Stock Xchng), Clker.com clipart, Wikimedia Commons, Flickr Creative Commons, and Open Clipart.

Creative Commons: Millions of Images

Creative Commons is a great source for graphics, images, videos and even music, as long as you're willing to follow their terms of use.

There's varying levels of Creative Commons licenses, indicated by a small graphic and/or two-letter abbreviation beneath the picture on the webpage where it appears:

  • BY: Available with attribution (credit) and a link back to where you found it. All Creative Commons images have this license.
  • ND: "No Derivatives" meaning you can't change, manipulate, or composite the graphic. Use the picture as is!
  • NC: NonCommercial. Sorry, you can't make money on these photos. That means you can't use these photos on pages that make money (like Hubpages), and of course no printing them on t-shirts and mugs for sale on Zazzle or Cafepress.
  • SA: Share Alike. That means you should post your image with the same level of Creative Commons license.

Tip: If you search on Creative Commons.org, you can limit your search to images licensed for commercial use and/or adaptation/remixing on their top banner.

Flickr Creative Commons and Wikimedia

Many but not all photographers on Flickr.com offer their photos as Creative Commons. Look for copyright or Creative Commons icons under "License" in the sidebar of each photo's page. To find Creative Commons photos on Flickr, go to their Advanced Search and scroll down, choosing "for commercial use" under Creative Commons.

Wikipedia images are usually Wikimedia Commons. See Reusing Content Outside Wikimedia for the full scoop, but basically (a) For images labeled Creative Commons, do as above; (b) For images labeled GNU (or some similar) license, give attribution, a link back, and mention and link to the text of the license; (c) for images labeled Public Domain, it's no strings attached; and (d) Wikipedia doesn't recommend you reuse images labeled "Fair Use," because they're not 100% sure the person who uploaded them knew the image's copyright.

Stock Photos Are Slick!

Traditionally, you had to pay a licensing fee to use stock photography.

Nowadays, many stock photo archives offer a wide selection of free or low-resolution images that are perfect for web graphics. (They may sell the higher-resolution versions, needed for print publications.)

On stock photo archives, you still need to double-check the license. Rarely, it will say non-commercial only. Sometimes the photographer asks that you leave a message to let them know where their photos are being used.

Free Clip Art and Web Graphics

It's hard to find good-qualitly, royalty-free clip art that doesn't have a watermark and isn't limited to noncommercial use. If you're willing to pay a (quite reasonable) subscription price, you may download and use millions of excellent graphics on Clipart.com or iClipart. They allow you to use their graphics on website or for commercial purposes.

However, many of us are stingy. We want free graphics. That takes a little more hunting.

Tip: Google Image Search for LEGAL Graphics

Have you found a website where most images are public domain?

Use Google Image Search to search images only on that site.

For example, go to Google, click the Image tab at top, and search:

site:commons.wikimedia.org shakespeare

site:www.fws.gov chickadee

site:www.nasa.gov jupiter

site:openclipart.org camera

site:www.clker.com dancer

You still have to check the Terms of Use to make sure, of course.

"The information on government web pages is in the public domain unless specifically annotated otherwise (copyright may be held elsewhere) and may therefore be used freely by the public." -- copyright notice on NOAA.

So, basically, if you find an image on a .gov site, unless there's a caption saying it's copyrighted or has usage restrictions, it is free to use! Please DO check.

When using .gov images, you must credit where you found them and acknowledge that they're public domain.

Hi

www.istockphoto.com

is a really great stock photo/illustration site you may want to add to your list of stock sites?

They have a free photo and free illustration to give away every month,and even if you buy the images, you can get a great professional photo for around £1 ($1.65)

That gives you unlimited use for all your web, stationery,etc projects as long as you don't re-sell the image.

@EditPhotos: Thank you!

Yes, if most of my lenses were eaten by a giant virtual caterpillar, this is the one that would be (I think) most useful to people.


mythphile profile image

mythphile 6 years ago from California Author

@anonymous: The bottom line is that you gotta see their "terms of use" or "terms of service" to learn in what way they allow images to be used.

Many "free" sites have a stamp or watermark on them because they want you to register, while many others have it there because it's not actually free; you have to pay a small fee for their use. When I do a Google search for clip art, the first results that turn up are almost always for these "pay" sites like shutterstock and clipartof.

But who knows, there may be some free sites out there which really do just have a URL or stamp on them, and they ask for nothing more! Permissions vary as much as the artwork, so all you can do is check each site. That's part of why I compiled this list, to give you an idea of what each site requires (though I haven't checked in a while to see wheter their "terms of use" have changed).

I wanted to thank you GreekGeek for all the help you've (unknowingly) given me. This lens in particular has been really helpful. I began the end of 2010 to exchange all of my graphics and photos for images that were public domain and free to use commercially. Because of your encouraging lenses (and God) I was convicted to do this right! Now making sure to give links and credit where they're due, on some images I asked permission, it took time, but feels good to know it's right. My 100+ lenses took FOREVER to do, but was worth it, they aren't perfect, but I'm learning. I've been wanting to say this for a while, THANKS GreekGeek!!

I recall you could go to Office Depot and other places, order cards and stationery, you would pick some line art drawing, they would note the number of it, and make your products. I want to find what book/catalog that was so I can find that clipart/icon or whatever it was called then.

Wow! That was a lot to take in! I'm new to Squidoo and I have found it a bit overwhelming, but with great insight like yours I'm feeling better. When you're a newbie it's hard shelling out $300 for photo credits or paying monthly fees.


anonymous 4 years ago

I appreciate the links to the image sites. My website has always lacked quality images due to pricing issues. Open source sites definitely will help.

Thank you

Finding the right picture can be really hard sometimes, especially when you're on a tight budget. And I'm always confused, if I buy a stock photo how to credit it properly.
