Weekend Website

31 Jan

Often students inadvertently create projects that use copyrighted material. They assume that if they can find something with Google and they can save it to their computer that it is fair game. Providing them with a way to adhere to copyright laws regarding usage is part of educating them about this issue.

Veezzle is a simple site that provides free stock photos from photo sharing sites. The site essentially aggregates the free stock photos on multiple other sites and allows you to access them through their simple search engine. Some Veezzle searches may not provide the same image options as a Google search, but all of the images that are given can ethically and lawfully be added to students’ work.

The images that I found for “pony”, “strawberry” and “eye” provided me with some useful options and dramatic images.
