Images for your social media, posts and projects

Green rectangle with text "Free Resources for Images and Photos"
This one has been a toughie for me…images, images everywhere and not a clue on what to do!

It’s took me several years of putzing, playing, testing and screwing up to learn more about image-related stuff. I mean think about it, I started on computer (ish!) stuff in the 70s and believe me, photos and pretties were reserved for those with HUGE budgets and a ton of specialists around to make sure all was jusssssst right.

In fact, the first time I screwed up the courage to do my first teleseminar, it took days and days and DAYS (seriously, I’m not even exaggerating). I was figuring out sizes, and where to find images, and how to resize the buggers and add text to them.

It wasn’t a pretty picture. In fact, at one point a friend found me curled up on the floor of my office crying my eyes out.

Over the course of several years, I taught myself stuff, asked a ton of questions and became obsessive-compulsive about creating a mindmap with resources so I could find them again.

Check out this list (another great way to reuse content.).

  1. Click any item to jump to that website
  2. If you find another resource, add it to the list!
  3. Click those share options and help other BizOwners, it’s great Karma!

    Thank you for the resource of photos. I try to use photos in my blog because I think it is very important to have visuals. I did learn something interesting that I would like to share too. I use microsoft word and they do have many images that can be inserted. I learned that if you own a legitimate copy of the software then you also own the images that are available in the clip art which also has photos. So I often check out to see what they have to offer

    • MamaRed says:

      Hey there Ines…I totally agree with using the visuals in your blog (especially because I now recommend people start from their own blog and share outward…and so much relies on pictures!). Oh so love the info on Microsoft Word! I had totally and completely forgotten about that… which is a bit embarrassing since I have a guest post on using ones from Powerpoint!

      Talk about pole vaulting over mouse turds! LOL.

      I’m going to add that to the list as an another resource. I wonder if the images are the same whether you’re in Word or Powerpoint. Hummmm

      may your day be igKnighted with passionately powerful possibilities!

      You’re so very welcome Pat! Finding a way to use all the links I’ve been saving in a mindmap for years! Have fun with them…

  • Oh how great of you to do this! I am finding lately that I need good free to use resources for video and music files! It can be so tricky online and no one wants to get in trouble!

    • MamaRed says:

      Hi there Sharon…glad it’s something you can use. I’ll have to take a peek at my mindmap and see if I have any video/music resources hanging out there. Like you, I do want to be careful and use the files in integrity and give back at the same time!

      Laugh lots, Love more!

    Love this list, MamaRed. It’s the additional notes about usage…including for commercial use…that makes it a big win resource! Will be sharing your link on one of my upcoming Fast Action Fridays shows.

      Glad it’s a useful one for you Kat! That info on usage is what I was looking for and it’s great to know you’re going to share it! Big blessings and may the New Year be joyous and prosperous for you and yours. MamaRed
