Pictures for eBook

 ğAnyone know where to get free public domain pics?
jmiguy Does anyone know of a good place to get free pictures to use in eBooks? (Especially of people)

I would like to include some pictures of people in my books but I have a limited budget and not too many friends who are models. :-)

Storyman Hi JmiGuy,

Have you checked out istockphoto.com?

EBookCompiler Be sure to check the Terms of Use for any pictures that you might use.  And if unsure contact the copyright holder for explicit permission or explanation.

For example, I bought 34 Gigs of art recently... The terms of use state I can use in my own documents and web sites and in products, but not in a way where users can re-use the images (which I imagine might cover resell rights)

JonniG You should also check out stock.xchng athttp://www.sxc.hu/home

Do look at the licence agreement, of course. I seem to recall that they have some limitations about using photos with people, but I can't remember the details.

jefftilt Most images that appear in WIKIPEDIA are available for use. Some have been released to the Public Domain and some requre attribution described under one of a couple of open-source type licenses.
