    I'm writting an ebook and I'm looking for Royalty Free Commercial Use Pictures, so that I don't have any legal issues.

    Most probably if I pick some pictures on Google no one will care, but you never know.

    Does any know of a free or cheap source of pictures? I'm not willing to pay 10$ for a pic or so.

    Thanks

    There are many sites out there offering "free" photos, but alot of the licenses do not allow for "commercial" use.

    Flikr is largest obviously. Use the filter "creative commons" in your search. Creative commons licenses are usually free to use in blogs, etc. But if putting in an ebook you may to contact owner to be safe.

    Bottom line READ the licenses of photos you like. If you find something you have to have, contact photographer. Sometimes, they just want credit for the photo. Never know if you do not ask :)

    Google is your best friend to find all the various photo sharing sites.....

    many of the photos on there are royalty free and ok for commercial use, check the rights on each photo.
