Finding great images that are free can take time. This post provides an amazing number of resources that will help you with this task. They have also included five pieces of information for each site:

* Subject - does it focus in a particular area or not

* Description

* High resolution - many images available today may be of low resolution

* License - Creative Commons, Public Domain, or specific attributions that may be required

* Safety - is this a site that is appropriate for students or may there be cause for concern

The post then splits the list into a variety of areas:
* Search Engines

* Large Crowdsourced Collections

* U.S. Government Collections

* Unique Collections, including

   -  Getty

   -  Pixabay

   - and approximately 20 more sites

* Specific Subjects

* Clip Art

You will find many great images as you explore these collections.
