Ever needed to find copyright free images to jazz up a presentation, your iLearn page, or perhaps to add a touch of spice to your next viral Teche post?

Learn how to do this using our trusty ol’ pal Google, in under two minutes, through this short video.

You may be wondering what this article’s feature image is all about. I followed the video instructions in real-time, and voila, within seconds I’ve found the touch of spice I needed for my Teche post!

And of course, I’ll have to properly attribute my found image:

Indian Spices by Joe mon bkk available at http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Indian_Spices.jpg under a Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 4.0 International license. Full terms at https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/4.0/deed.en.

For more information on how to correctly attribute images as above, visit the Creative Commons Australia fact sheet ‘How to attribute Creative Commons licensed materials‘.

But you don’t only have to use Creative Commons for copyright-free images. Sites such as Unsplash and Gratisography are sites that provide beautiful “high-quality free images and photos you can download and use for any project. No attribution required”. Photographers using these sites generously gift their images for no cost or attribution (though it’s courteous to give credit) so you can “move your creative projects forward”.

Did you find this process useful? Feel free to share any other methods and sources for finding copyright-free images or videos that you find helpful with the Teche community in the comments below!
