Pictures:

Always cite your sources!

  • PhotosForClass - Choose an image, then click download. The image you've downloaded automatically adds the citation (credit) under the image. Magic!
  • Pixabay - Once you find a photo you'd like to use, see if it needs to be attributed (given credit). If so, copy the link to use in your bibliography or somewhere in your work.
  • Creative Commons - Be thoughtful about which of the little boxes you un-check for your search. You do need to cite your source!
  • Pexels - Giving credit to the the photographer or Pexels is not necessary but always appreciated. (practice good digital citizenship!)

Better yet, create your own!

Sound & Music:

Royalty Free means you can use it for free without paying the artist, but you still need to say where you got it from.

  • Jamendo - A community of free, legal and unlimited music published under Creative Commons licenses
  • Purple Planet Music - Royalty free music
  • BenSound - Offers about 175 music tracks that you can download for free. You can download and use the music in your video projects for free provided that you credit Bensound for the music.
  • Free Music Archive - This website comes with a separate area with music for videos. Sift through the most recent highlights or filter the contents by mood. Search by genre, length or even tempo. Make sure to check the license as it will vary.
  • WikiMedia - Images and sound files. Read the quick part on each sound about the rights to use it. Very clear permissions.
