Copyright Friendly image sites to search for pictures
  • It is a requirement of all Creative Commons Licences that you attribute the original author.
  • This means you can’t just use a Creative Commons image without acknowledging the person who originally created it.
  • One way to do this is to link it to the page you got it from so that if any one clicks on the photo they can view the original source of the image.

**Creative Commons** - Source for images, media and music. Check for licence and acknowledge owner.
