This is one task where I greatly prefer using Bing to Google search. Just go to Bing, then click on “Images” on the top toolbar. Enter your search term, and when the results come up, you should see a list of options above the results (size, color, type, etc.). Click on “license” and select the appropriate usage license from the drop down menu. One of the options is free to modify and use commercially. Bing will filter the results accordingly.

Top 5 Free Websites for Quality Copyright Free Photographs

"Stock photography is all over the place on the Web. If you’re looking for an image of just about anything, you’re bound to find that professional, high-quality photo from various online distributors and agencies, like Getty Images, Corbis, iStockphoto, or Shutterstock.

However, the downside is that all those photos are going to cost you. It’s important to understand the term “royalty-free” (RF) for those websites. RF images are not in the public domain, nor are they free to use without purchasing a license.

Luckily, there are plenty of websites for copyright free images that won’t require you to dig into your pockets. Here’s 5 of them."
