How to get quality copyright free images

I see so many teachers making the mistake of using Google Images and other image search tools to get images to use in their work. You can use search tools within the Google Image Search to ensure that you are only searching for creative commons free images by choosing the ‘usage rights’ tab in Image Search:

The images shown here aren’t too bad but more often than not the keyword search brings back images that aren’t as ‘nice’ as you would like. This is why I prefer to use other sites such as the creative commons search site as it enables you to search the popular image site Flickr for higher quality images as well as other sites for clipart images and other types of media too such as audio. It really is good.

I’ve used the creative commons search site for a while by default but recently I’ve come across a different site which has lots of copyright free images; from photographs to vector images and more. The site, pixabay, is really good and the quality of images is superb too.
