Unless stated otherwise, you are free to download and use the photos for both personal and commercial purposes. However, you may not claim the copyright as your own. New photos are added every day. And while photo credits and things aren't required, the autos would appreciate it if you give one. The next one on the block is public domain archive dot com, which is managed by Matt Hobbs of Web and graphic designer and a photograph for He created the site because there was no place to go and find tons of high quality public domain images. So he created a repository where he our guys high quality public domain images that defines across the Web. Matt adds new images every week, and all are released under Creative Commons.

So see you in the next class. 4. Ninja Trick: all right, so in this class, I'm going to share one off the ninja tricks I use to find more public domain sharing sites . If you have ever used and at one search query on Google to find something, then this will be a piece of cake for you. All you need to do is go onto google dot com and typing these advanced search queries. But remember, you need to use one other thing. The first, at one source query, is in text. Colon copyright plus three plus images. So here we are telling Google to search for webpages, which have copyright free images as a text on them. Usually the sites that will load in the search users are sites that host copyright three images or definitely start the names off such sites. The next gravy is in text colon public plus domain plus images. So here we are telling Google to search for rep edges, which have public domain images as a text in them. If you already know about Google at one search queries, then you can try various other combinations to find more such sites. But if you are new to the advanced very section, then I highly recommend you learn more about them on Google 5.

While using these images, you need to be careful off using images that include people, trademarks, public property and works of art.
