I’m always on the lookout for nice AND free graphics to use in print and web design for the library. Here are a few of my favorite resources:
My first go to for images is the Flickr’s advanced search because it allows searching of images with Creative Commons licenses.
DeviantArt content includes photographs, Photoshop add-ons (brushes, textures, borders, graphics, etc.), animations, arts, crafts, and more. Most of the users make their resources free but request that you leave them a comment about how you used their work. www.deviantart.com
OpenClipart.org is an archive of public domain clip art. This site offers a wide variety of clip art including vintage and retro illustrations and modern graphics. www.openclipart.org
