I would like to thank the following websites that let you use their pictures for free (usually called public domain), many of the photos in this blog where used with the permission of these free websites:
My favorite site is PublicDomainPictures.net , here you get to download thousands of pictures for free (these are high quality pics too) and you can then make a donation for the downloads you make. This not only saves me hundreds of dollars a year, but, I also feel good about making a donation to a photographer if I have downloaded a number of their pictures. (It is only right you know.)
Probably the best laid out site, that makes finding free pictures easily, is PublicDomainImages.com. I just recently found this site but it has great potential. Like I said, it is one of the easiest of all public domain sites that I have found, to actually find what you want. Check it out, you won’t be sorry.
Another good site for free pictures is PublicDomainPhoto.com which I find is a great site for clipart mostly, they have some pictures but only about 5,000 available for free. (this is far less than most other free sites.) Great clipart!
When I can’t find a free picture at one of the above sites I use a couple of paid services. My newest favorite is; DepositPhotos.com. They are by far one of the cheapest places online to buy pictures you can use on your blog or website. They have packages anyone can afford and millions of pictures to choose from. I love this site!
