Don't Use Google to Find Your Images

When creating presentation, it's important that the images used are professional as well as legal. We highly advise that you do not find images through a simple Google search. This may cause issues with copyright infringement as well as poor quality imagery.

Our technology mentors have found a list of websites that offer high quality HD images, free of royalties, captured by professional photographers. These images may be downloaded for free or purchased through subscription depending on the company. 

Often times stock photos are able to be purchased for a couple of dollars or on a subscription based program. However there are great websites that offer professional, high-quality, free stock images.
