  • This is great timing! I just started to make myself a list of where to get free images yesterday. Cheers!

  • Glad to be of service :)

  • You still need to be somewhat cautious. For example, Pixabay offers images of Popeye the Sailor. The character is public domain European Union and other countries but not in the U.S. (according to Wikipedia and several other sources I checked).

    This is a nice addition to some sites I already use. So far I’ve gotten the most out of Flickr, using Advanced Search to find Creative Commons images. When I use an image I try to let the photographer know if possible, and thank them for making their pic available. They always share my site with people they know, and some have linked to me from their blog or whatever, which is a good thing.

  • Awesome. Great tips Robert!
