Free Photos

Loch Awe Scotland
Beautiful pictures accompanying a post draws attention to the message or vice versa. Finding a good picture that emphasizes the message of the post is hard to get. Sometimes if I am lucky I can use one of my own. For presentations I have a set self made photo's about ECT.

Luckily there are few free photo sites such as:

  • The site uses the following categories: USA, Business, Europe, Nature, Transport, United Kingdom, and other.
    Our on-line images are covered by the Creative Commons license for non-commercial, no derivatives, attribution license ( This provides for use in any media providing it is not for commercial purposes and they are not making a derivative image or gallery.ANYONE, by which we mean commercial and non-commercial alike, can use images in an online setting, providing they provide attribution to the image and a link back to (either the image or the main site).

    You will have to give your e-mail address, but than you can start the download. The picture is presented in a separate window were you can right click and save as.. The image above and below are from FreeFoto. It is Loch Awe in Scotland

  • A better site is All you have to do is join the mailing list and credit the source when using the image. I didn't join the mailing list but could still use the images with a simple right click and save picture as....

  • On you can only get photos with their name on it,
    Every photograph used must retain the domain name: when used on the Internet, in a web page, in printed publications, or in any product, advertising, or packaging.

    Downloading them is easy. Just use right click with save picture as...

Thanks for the tips - Well … I’m giving myself some meditative time googeling for pictures. Not very practical - I know. But here I have some other sites. I don’t use them myself (hooked to meditation).
And, if you like animations or clipart:

Most sites give a lot tips to other sites with images. It’s too much for me!
