Can I use it?

Welcome to the largest compilation of creative commons, public domain, and free-to-use media websites on the planet. I've annotated descriptions to make it easy to learn exactly what you can and cannot do with the works.

Do search for and check the Terms of Use, About Us, Permission, Copyright, or FAQ pages for attribution requirements and other details, such as whether or how you can use photos of recognizable people commercially.

 I've included many smaller, hard-to-find, and lesser-known sites that offer high-quality or unique images.  I do not include sites that aggregate Creative Commons content but are not diligent about explaining the license types and thus create more confusion than provide a service. I also do not list sites that include offensive content.

Helpful Definitions:

The Library of Congress - The Cootie

"No Known Copyright Restrictions"
