    Hello everyone. I thought I'd share something I've been using recently to save myself a few dollars here and there.

    If you want to get free images without any copyright problems, simply follow the steps:

    1. Go to Fotolia or your site of choice.

    2. Find an image you want of whatever.

    3. Instead of buying it, simply copy the tumbnail (the one that has the copyright). Some sites block you copying the thumbnail, so just take a pic of the whole page and crop it with whatever image editing tool you have.

    4. Next go to TinEye.com and upload the pic of the thumbnail. Tineye will look all over the web for similar images and return all the results including several of the images you want WITHOUT copyright. Since the images were bought already by people you'll never run into problem from following this method.

    Hit thanks button if you found this useful.

    Thanks + rep! This is very useful guide, I did a test run for some very pricey images and actually found 2 that I can now get free of charge. Great share.

    don't need to copy entire desktop on fotolia, just right click > view source > copy directory and paste in new tab. btw all of my searches have the copyright...

    Here is a free screen tool that I use to grab images. It's pretty slick and easy to use.
