Public Domain Images

Most content on the internet, whether it be pictures, video or music, is protected by copyright law, whether the creator realises that or not. However, privately created and owned materials are not always protected by copyright law. Public Domain is where content whose copyright has expired is moved.

From the Creative Commons organisation comes this meta search engine that can help you find a range of different resources - and you get to select whether they're for commercial purposes (and if they're for a course you're intending to market in some way, this is probably the safest option) and / or for modification etc. The colours of this site are really not pleasant (in my opinion at least!)
