How to Find Copyright Free Pictures
Some copyright free picture sites great number images that were taken mostly from antique or scarce books. An example is FromOldBooks where you can find high resolution, free images, scanned from antique books. Another center for these types of pics is KarensWhimsy. These images are often highly ornate, complicate drawings or watercolors. They’ll work for some niches, but if you have a more modern market, you’ll want to search in other places.
Another copyright issue comes up when using images of people. Sites like RepublicDomain offer copyright free pictures, but no form releases. Always make sure you can locate a form release when using a picture of a person, unless the photo was taken at an angle that completely prevents the identification of the individual. This includes pictures of babies and children – a form release signed by the legal guardian is necessary.
Copyright free pictures often are as high-quality as the specialized stock pictures you’d pay by the nose for (as far as commercial use goes). A little research will uncover hundreds of free-photo sites – perfect for your online or offline business ventures!
