1. Class Introduction: hi. In this class, I'm going to color three sources for finding free royalty images that you can use for your project. Those images are completely for free, so you don't actually need to pay anything in order to use them either for personal propose or even commercially. Once you don't love it, you're pretty much free to do whatever you want with those images. So I'm going to cover those trees Pacific sources and also show you a little bit how they work and operate. One source allows you also to Donald videos that you can use either personally or commercially, which is great in case you will need. So anyway, all of those three sources contain higher a solution, images that you can even use for printing. Anyway, I hope to see you inside this class, and I'm looking forward to showing you where you can find all of those great images completely for free Syrian side 2. Royalty Free Images Source One: Hi. In this lecture, I'm going to cover the first source for finding royalty free, high quality images. And the 1st 1 is going to be pics of a dot com. This site is really great, and it has at the moment as I'm recording this over 750,000 free stock photos vectors and art illustrations. So the way it works is that you just type in any kind of search term you will, like, search for, let's say some, and here you can see that you get some suggestions on what you can search for. This is based on what other vistors have searched for in the past. And here you can select the different preferences such as media type orientation category the size and also the cold air source on advancing future mawr and click on it. You can see that you can even use and or not in order to refine your search results. But this is some advances stuff, and I'm not going to cover it because it is out of the scope of this class. I'm gonna just hit search here and up here you can see the sponsoring images and those are basically the bombs that you need to pay for. However, down here you have over 19,000 free images, photos, illustration, vector graphics. So those are really great images that you see down here. And basically, let's say that we select this one, and here you see that it is free for commercial use. You can basically do whatever you want with it, and you have the ability Don't load it. So if you click on this bottle, you can select the different sizes. And in order to be able to don't know the original file, you will need to click on download, and basically we'll also need to be logged in. In this case, I'm nobody, but you can just sign up for a free account, which takes about less than 10 seconds. And the great thing, what I like with big surveys that you can actually buy those people that put up those images cup of coffee. So, in case you would like to, you can just send them a dollar or whatever you want. You know that the con tribute today work off. This is optional, and it's not something that must do, but I do it occasionally because I really like what those people are doing. And you can also follow those people that take those pictures, especially if you're following us. Specific photographer. For example, This one, Miriam photos they have she or he Or maybe they are a couple that are taking pictures and you can actually fall of those by clicking here. Follow. And basically, when they released new photos, you will get the notification through your email if you have signed up that they have put up some new photos, and this is a really nice way to grab more additional photos for a project without actually needing to spend time searching for them. So this is basically how picks obey works, and it is a great site. And I really recommended to check it out because you probably postive Lee, surprised by the amount of high quality images and redos found on the site. All right, that does it for these lectures. Stay tuned. There's more to come. See you next 3. Royalty Free Images Source Two: Hi. The second source for fiving royalty free images is that stocks snapped that I owe here. You can find also a lot of different images related to the search term that you're searching for. And all of those images are actually royalty free as well. So let's go over to the search box and typing some and he tender let's see what it brings back. All right, so here we can see that we have almost 2000 photos related to the sun, and basically you can sort of those depending on date, trending views don't loads favorites. And let's say that I would like to see reach photo is actually being done on the most. I'm gonna just sort it on the loads. And here you see, the 1st 1 has been downloaded almost 1000 times, and this one looks great. This well, and I'm gonna just click on it and try to don't load it. So here you can basically don't load the higher solution for two immediately. And before you do that, I just want to notify you about the life sense not to see here. So if you click on it, you can see that all photo. Some stocks snapped following the Creative Commons CC license and which means basically, you can copy, modify, distribute any foot on the site, even for for commercial proposes, all without asking for permission. So let's go back to it. So I'm gonna just score and don't load it here. Actually don't need to have an account in order to be ableto don't load higher social images while in the pics of a you were forced to create a free account in order to be able to download the higher solution version off the image that trying to download you can also sign up for their weekly newsletter where you will live. Received most popular photos every week straight to your inbox. This optional, of course. Another different thing with stocks, not attire, is that they have actually a graphic editor. So should click on the left No more year you will be taken to a graphic editor where you can actually play around with your images and modify them food. Er, however, this is our paid graphic character, and personally, I'm not using this one. I prefer to use a do before the show, but it is up to you to decide what you would like to use in order to modify your photos. Or maybe you're just finally tall. They look now and you actually don't need to modify them at all. Anyway, this is up to you. I'm not going to dig in print. And you're free to do whatever you want with photo once you don't load it. All right, so that's a seat for this lecture. Let's move on to do last source for finding royalty free images in the next lecture. See you next. 4. Royalty Free Images Source Three: hi. The last source for five being royalty free images is the pixels dot com. This is so it's a great site where you can find thousands off different photos related to the topic that you're interested in. And the difference with this site and the other two that we discussed is that they have different licenses, the Pentagon, each image. So you will actually to check carefully in case you need to, for example, at attribution for a specific image, which is most common when it comes to images found on the site. However, there are also images that you actually don't need to provide any attribution for, So make sure you read the license before you don't load it. So I'm gonna go over and search for Sun here again and see what happens. All right, so let's click on this image, and here you see that the license actually allows you to use it for personal commercial use , and North attributions is required when the attribution is required. You will see here so it will basically state something like attribution required for this image. Make sure your link to this profile, etcetera, so you can also don't low this image in the custom size and were in the original one. You have also the ability to lead us medium or small. And this is basically how it works. So all of those sources works pretty much the same. So basically, search for a specific image and you have the ability to sort out them depending on the don't pick that you're interesting in and so on down here, connections subscribed to get 40 exclusive photos through the monthly newsletter with their best high quality images. Thesis optional. Of course. And I'm gonna leave that up to you in order to decide what you actually would like to do more. But I just wanted to show you hall the site works and actually hold you. Can Cain advantage off it instead, off being forced it to pay for the images where you can actually find them completely for free. All right, so that was it for this lecture.
