One response to “We know what you want

  1. Great resource, thanks! Another one that I’ve used to search through several sites is http://everystockphoto.com/.

    The reason these resources are important is that many of us use Google or some other search to find pictures and insert them into our presentations. We should only do that with the author/artist allowing use of those images. These resources allow you to go to a site to find images that have more “open” copyright. Even if it is open and free, you should still site your source.
