How can one tell if an image is public domain?
I recall a forum discussion a few months back regarding how one can tell if an image is available in the public domain or not. Does anyone recall how that is done?
Look at the image credit, if it stated free download, public use, you can use it, freedigitalphoto.net
Unless you know for a fact that a picture is authorized for your use consider it off limits. That is the safest method to use.
If you are looking for an image resource I have an article that is on my profile rotation titled "Free Pictures, Photos, Clip Art, and Public Domain Illustrations" which can help you. I try to use my own photos as often as possible but these are the sites that I most often use for other supplementary images.
