the images

Introduction

Have you ever tried finding images for a website, document, or presentation? If you want to stay legal and use the images legitimately – your task isn’t very easy, especially if you don’t have a budget. Sure, there are stock photography sources you can purchase images from, but what if there is no money for this project? The resources are fairly skimpy…well, actually, they are plentiful BUT they aren’t well systematized or aggregated.

The goal of this site is to recognize the photographers and artists who are creating high quality images that are made freely available for use under a Creative Commons Attribution license. I hope the site will serve to elevate the position of these generous artists and also to provide individuals looking for imagery materials to use in various projects with a quick source for finding excellent options.

Each link below will take you to a page with images covering the specified topic. Enjoy!
