Good to have some sites sorted out, it's a lot of work to have to go through them yourself. Thanks Dustin.

How to Find Free Images With Google's Advanced Image Search

How to Find Free Images With Google's Advanced Image Search | Internet Presence | Scoop.it
There are several benefits to complementing your blog posts with a little visual appeal, but photos must make sense and not infringe on any copyrights. Follow these simple steps to find royalty free images using the Google Images advanced search.


The general rule of thumb in the Internet world is that at least one image should be used to complement every blog post you create. There are several benefits to doing this, with the most important being to capture the attention of many more readers by giving your words a boost with a little visual appeal.

However, this doesn't mean just importing the first image you come across. It must first, make sense and correlate with what the post is about and second, not infringe on any copyright laws. There can be consequences that go along with this that you won't want to personally come across. The easiest way to find an acceptable image is to change your Google search settings to filter out anything that could potentially bring you repercussions.

Verstandig om te gebruiken. Een fout is snel gemaakt. En dan duur.

Lean is about optimization of all the processes in any value stream.

It is about avoiding waste and reducing cost while increase value for the enduser. It is also about reducing cost.

Useful instructions here.  I have personally spent hours in google images trying  to find a picture for my blog, only to find that every one I choose has a fee attached.  Adding pictures to text makes it more compelling and enchances every "story"

Top 12 Free Image Sites

Top 12 Free Image Sites | Internet Presence | Scoop.it
One of the best visual techniques in capturing your users' attention is the use of images on your site. They are especially useful to bring a point across, beautify the website and enhance articles...

There are many stock free image sites on the web where you can purchase such images for reasonable prices. However, there are also many sites that let you download such high quality images free-of-charge. Find the best selection the internet has to offer:

1. StockFreeImages– This site belongs to Dreamstime.com and used to be in their free section. In March of 2012, all of the images were ported over to this current site. The images from this site alone has saved me thousands of dollars as I have literally used hundreds of their images for my niche sites. You will need to register one time in order to download and it has a liberal attribution policy (only required where possible). They currently have more than half a million large high-quality images (yes, you read that correctly, it is more than 570K images) for free download. If there is only one site you can choose, you definitely will not go wrong with StockFreeImages.com

2. stock.xchng – This is one of the most well-known and popular site on the internet that has a large collection of free-to-use stock photos. Currently has almost 400K free images to choose from. Registration is a must to use the photos and attribution does not seem to be required at the moment.

3. FreeDigitalPhotos.net – This site has plenty of images that are pretty original and it a very good site to source for new ones. Registration and attribution are required in order to download and use the images. The images, although smaller than most, are still great alternatives to the other sites.

Marc Kneepkens's insight:

This is a great collection of free sites for downloading images. Even some pay sites too, but with great discounts and pricing. Thanks.

Be careful though and always read their terms and conditions. Don't get tricked into using free images and not following the conditions (listing credentials for example in some cases).
