Free Copyright-Clear Images, Video, & Audio

This post is going to include some websites that I have found that offer free images, audio, and videos that students and teachers can use in their projects. As I find more websites I will add them. Also if you know of any feel free to add them in the comments section!

Images:
Flickr
Not all images are copyright free but each image is clearly labeled. Great site to search for images because you can filter by copyright license.

Pics4Learning
Free, copyright friendly images for education.  Citation listed right beneath photo.

Pexels
Over 10,000 free photos for use with at least 1500 new photos added each month.  All photos are licensed under the Creative Commons Zero license which means they are completely free to use for any legal purpose (like public domain photos).

Images that can be used for free in education or commercial presentations. Some require attribution.

More than 187,000 maps, postcards, etchings, engravings, photographs, prints, illustrations, and more—all on the web, and freely available for anyone to use.

Photos For Class
Makes locating images and attributing their source a snap! All images are "G" rated and appropriate for the school setting. But the best part...the image citation is part of the image itself.
