Free Image Sources

Your camera: One of the best sources for imagery is you. Everyone is taking lots of photographs these days. Just be careful and ensure you have a consent and release from any individuals that are in the photo.

Your organization: Many organizations have lots of graphics, logos and assets. If there are any individuals in these assets, make sure you have written permission to use those individuals in your visual study materials.

Free stock photography (Creative Common): It can be really tempting to just take images from the web and use them in your study. Don’t do that. It’s illegal and could result in your study being suspended. There are lots of free sources. Look for the “Creative Commons Zero,” license. It means you can use the image without restriction.
