Images

Adding images to a multimedia project is at least as important as adding text or narration. Unless we have the time and creativity to create our own photographs we have to use images created by someone else.
Using images can lead to copyright infringement. To avoid that there is Creative Commons.org to help us.
 
Here is a brief description from their webpage:

"Please note that search.creativecommons.org is not a search engine, but rather offers convenient access to search services provided by other independent organizations. CC has no control over the results that are returned.

Do not assume that the results displayed in this search portal are under a CC license.

You should always verify that the work is actually under a CC license by following the link. Since there is no registration to use a CC license, CC has no way to determine what has and hasn't been placed under the terms of a CC license. If you are in doubt you should contact the copyright holder directly, or try to contact the site where you found the content."

Follow the links below to learn more about the different search engines that have creative commons image libraries.
