FREE PICTURES

Postby LilliesCarol » Wed Jul 02, 2014 1:22 pm

I am beginning to put together my prayer meditation book and am looking for some free pictures of pastoral scenes and/or religious pictures. Where might I find these and if I use them in my book will it be against some law pertaining to the use? Thanks for your help.

There are stock photo sites, however you have to be careful because they will charge fees based on a variety of things (basically they're free only if you use them for personal use, like a desktop). I've even seen sites with public domain photos but they charge to use their site for them.

From

"Which pictures can I use without permission?

"Ones you’ve taken. The person who took the photograph, not the person who has possession of the photograph owns the copyright. Without permission from the original photographer or copyright holder, only pictures that you have personally taken can be used without permission (unless a photo is "in the public domain" because the copyright has expired or is obtained through an organization that offers copyright-free photos, such as Wikimedia Commons). If a picture is found in an eBook, newspaper or magazine, you cannot use the image without getting permission. Pictures and information found on the Internet are not "public domain." Most material found on the Internet is copyright protected. Additionally, photographers retain the rights to photographs they take, even if the picture is of you or a family member and even if it is from an event that you paid for, such as your wedding. You need to obtain permission from the photographer even if you purchased a print of the photograph. When in doubt, get written permission or consult a legal professional."
"It seems rather like wanting to be ... a writer, rather than wanting to write. It should be a by-product, not a thing in itself. Otherwise, it's just an ego trip." - Roger Zelazny

It's really not that hard. Just tell me a story.

use google images to find pix that fit your text... be sure to include 'free' in the search description... then you can easily click on the source to confirm if they're 'free use' or not... this is how i got all the images i used for the covers and the many small graphics i scattered among the contents of my 6 books...
ALL 6 e-book collections of my work are FREE...email me with "want free books" in subject line and include a message.
