Whether you are completing an assignment, developing a web page, or making marketing materials for your company, you have probably needed an image at some point in your life. Images can be tricky. It can be hard to find exactly what you want. Then there are copyright and attribution laws and rules to consider. And you found the *perfect* image in a print book, but really need it in a digital format. Sigh.

Enter Kalev Leetaru. He “is creating a searchable database of 12 million historical copyright-free images” using Flickr. Of course, this won’t address all of your image needs since these are historical in nature. But bookmark the Internet Archive Book Images Flickr page, because it might come in handy eventually.
