Can anyone help with a list of free photo and video sites? I dont want to violate any copyright laws when copying images from the web
I'd recommend using works that fall under a Creative Commons license. There are several types of licenses, but the best one is where you're allowed to remix or add on to an existing work *or* use it for commercial purpose--as long as you attribute it to the original creator.
Some people will tell you how they want to be attributed. Others don't mention it all. In cases of those who don't mention it, attribute the work to them, linking back to the source of the image or the author's website.
There are online guides on how to attribute. And to find Creative Commons images, all you have to do is google it. Always make sure that the license is the right one, attribute, follow whatever rules, and you have free images! It's a little complicated but worth the effort.

So I decided about a week ago to try my hand at writing, being as I am extremely opinionated. However my writing skills are way out of practice and I'm not very good at sourcing pictures to use, nor do I have the money to buy stock images. So i could use some advice on that also. My hub doesn't...
