Free Images for use in Educational Settings
Looking for images to go along with your lesson?
Yes, there is always Google Image Search (I use it daily) but those images may be protected by copyright law. If you are looking free images that you can use legally check out these sites:
morgueFile – Free high resolution photographs, (as a courtesy you could site the photographer.) The morguefile images are really free to use in creative projects, although they are not in the public domain. These images are provided with free usage rights, it is similar to taking the image yourself, but you can not claim ownership of the image.
Pics4Learning – Pics4Learning is a safe, free image library for education. Teachers and students can use the copyright-friendly photos and images for classrooms, multimedia projects, web sites, videos, portfolios, or any other project in an educational setting.
FreeFoto – FreeFoto.com is made up of 132549 images with 183 sections organized into 3640 categories. Educational users may download images to use off-line in school projects. FreeFoto.com does ask for link back and attribution for photos used.
