Every Church should be using quality imagery to help share the message of hope through Jesus. Finding quality imagery though, takes a lot of time and money. Here are some sites to help you find quality imagery to use in your Newsletters, Bulletins, Announcement Slides, Emails, Website, Promotional Materials and much more.
Here are several sites that give away FREE pictures. Some of these sites are totally free – meaning you don’t have to give credit of any kind no matter how you use the images. Some of these sites allow you to use their images as long as you don’t sell the image in some form. Some of these sites list their images under the Creative Commons License. This license has a few variations – but for the most part a simple “Attribution” is all that is required to use the image. (Just give the original author credit.) Each site has it’s own requirements so be sure to double check the license requirements before you use any image.
Textures are a great way to add a professional and polished look to your designs. Some textures are actually photographs and some are computer generated images. You can use textures in all kinds of ways including: Lyric Backgrounds, Announcement Slides, Power Point Templates and much more. Here are a few sites that give away FREE textures of all kinds. Check out these sites before you buy, because you can probably find what you need for FREE.
Royalty Free simply means once you buy the image, you no longer have to pay royalties on that image (unless you use the image in a way not originally agreed upon). Although FREE sites are the best way to go, sometimes you just can’t find the right image for your project, or you want to sell a product that has an image on it – that’s where royalty images come in. Here are several sites that sell imagery. Some are subscription based sites, others are per image based and some a combination of the two. Many of these sites give away images every month or even every week. Subscribe to their newsletter to get FREE images and discounts.
