Where can you find free, good quality images that are cleared to use for your blog posts or social media content?
It’s a question with a lot of different answers and caveats. Nearly every image created in the last 30 years is still protected by copyright — a protection that gives virtually every author the exclusive right to use or reproduce their work.

We’ll explore all of these and then some in this post about free image sources. A few things to know before we get started:
Creative Commons is a nonprofit organization that enables the sharing and use of creativity and knowledge through free legal tools.
