    What are some places to look for finding good free pictures. That is one of the things that I spend alot of time doing is trying to find pics.

    www.morguefile.com  Excellent site for legal pictures

    www.google.com There is an images tab along the top of the search screen. To the far right of the page after you click on images, there is a link that says advanced image search... click that. On that screen enter the keyword and then under usage rights select the box that says "only images labeled for reuse" then the one underneath that that says "also limit images available for commercial reuse"

    Then read any licensing restrictions on the site of the image to make sure that you are using them appropriately.

    Remember, by most definitions using a picture on a hub is considered "commercial use

      Thank you so much. I didn't know about the advanced search on the google tab. Now I might have to go write an article and check out the two new resources you've given me.

    I would like to add to prasetio30’s good advice. Make sure when you choose a Flickr image that it can be legally downloaded and displayed on your hub without permission and for free. Not all Flickr images fall into this category. Go to the “Creative Commons” section on Flickr to find free images that can be used commercially and check the license carefully.

      Thank you both, AliciaC and prasetio30, for your help. It will be good to have a list all in one place to do my searches for photos to go thru.
