Copyright-Friendly Images

This was copied from GCT Terry's list - the people mentioned below are responsible for this great collection.


Where to Find Copyright-free Pictures (and some clipart)  on the Web:



The most comprehensive annotated list came from Nancy Sharoff. She provided an amazing collection of sites: http://visual-lit.wikispaces.com/Where+Is+It%3F

Also, the following from Colette Cassinelli:




Smithsonian Images
<http://smithsonianimages.si.edu/siphoto/siphoto.portal?_nfpb=true&_pa...>provides

access to that incredible collection, and also allows you to use
any of them as E-Cards. 


Nations Illustrated <http://www.nationsillustrated.com/> has 8,000 images
from around the world, and also provides an E-Card feature. 


The University of Victoria Teaching Clipart
Gallery<http://hcmc.uvic.ca/clipart/>has three thousand images
specifically designed for language-teaching. 


The Royalty Free Clip Art Collection For Foreign/Second Language
Instruction<http://tell.fll.purdue.edu/JapanProj//FLClipart/>from
Purdue University is another place to find images useful for teaching
English Language Learners. 


The Japanese Language Course Support
Site<http://japanese.gatech.edu/images/index.html>is a smaller, but
useful, source of language-learning images. 


Clip Art ETC <http://etc.usf.edu/clipart/> from Florida's Educational
Technology Clearinghouse offers over 38,000 pieces of clip art for students
and teachers. 


Edupics <http://www.edupics.com/> is one more source of clip art for use in
schools.


I'm also adding a direct link to Darren Draper's excellent post (including
additional resources) called The Educator's Guide To The Creative
