The finer points of finding free images

Free—it’s my favourite* word. It’s probably the most popular word found in advertising to get you to buy something. But has free ever really meant free? The catch is usually that you have to buy something in order to get something else free. Or maybe you have to agree to give up your personal information, forever dooming you to junk mail, to get that free hotel stay in Vegas.

As a blogger, I’m constantly on the look out for free images that I can use in posts, to show other people, or just cause they’re free.

Sure, places like are great – but really, it’s the internet. You can probably find most of those images for free somewhere else anyway.

For those of you after icons (for programs, etc) look no further than ICONLook (again, pun fully intended).
