Hi all,


I just got into making my own games and I am looking for a good place to find images I can use freely. Do you have any suggestions?

Thx

Find images with free-to-use commercial licenses, usually a license is attached to any image used on a wiki so you'd have a good chance starting there, though not all wiki images are open-source and commercial.

If it's for your own personal use to play with friends, don't worry about it.

For your personal use, as Meaker VI says, it is not a serious concern.

For free-to-use images that are "royalty-free" as well as "cost-free" try a site such as https://pixabay.com/ and http://www.freeimages.com/. There are others, but these two may give you a good enough start.

Some sites show image search results that include "free" as well as "fee" based. If you click an image an it offers image sizes and cost-per-size, you've encountered one. The site's not fooling you, it's just that the paid-for results can be harder to distinguish from the free results.

Be aware that each site has its own terms of use for their images. This will range from "Use it as you wish" to "You must credit the artist" to "You must receive permission from the artist". It can vary.

Thank you all for your replies, I have tried the above methods and they work great so far. Is there a website specifically dedicated to clip art and or vector pics?

Though I am not looking to use my games outside my home, I would rather use free to use things...
