Below are three websites I am adding to the list of the best platforms for public domaine pictures. You can use these resources to download and print pictures and images for free. Students can also use them to search for pictures to use in their multimedia projects.

1- Pixabay

On Pixabay you may find and share images free of copyrights. All pictures are published under Creative Commons public domain deed CC0.You can copy, modify, distribute and use the images, even for commercial purposes, all without asking permission and without paying attribution. However, depicted content may still be protected by trademarks, publicity or privacy rights.
2-  Pic4Learning

Pics4Learning is an open project where anyone ( particularly photographers ) can join in and add their photos. The library counts thousands of free images which are all approved for classroom use. These images are also indexed and stored into different categories making it easy for teachers and students to browse and search through them. Have a look and share with us if you know of other similar copyright friendly image resources.
3- EveryStockPhoto


This is a search engine for free photos. These come from many sources and are license-specific. You can view a photo's license by clicking on the license icon, below and left of photos. Membership is free and allows you to rate, tag, collect and comment on photos.
