Good morning

Can anyone point me in the right direction as to where you find free images to incoporate into your training material?

Thanks

Hi Judith,
I've always found Unsplash, Pexels, Albumarium and MorgueFile useful - hope that helps!

Hi Judith,

check out smashing magazine - its a design site used by designers, digital designers, web designers. They have loads of great resources including icons, images and stuff you can use.

https://www.smashingmagazine.com/tag/freebies/

We often get asked for 'free' images when working on projects. We advise people to be careful to check copyright and license details before they use them.

Some people want a reference link or you can't use them in commercial projects.

Hope this helps,

Scott

These are really useful thanks. On a similar topic, how do you compress images for web? With Windows XP and 8 I used to use Microsoft Picture Editor, but this doesn't exist in Windows 10. Are there alternatives?

The main image editors I use are Pixlr Express for basic editing, or Pablo by Buffer for quicker images for Twitter & Facebook.

Hmm am trying to use Pixlr, I can resize the image, then I go to save and it generates the image in a non-recognisable format, not jpg. When I add to my SharePoint pages it doesn't display. Can it compress as jpg?

Hi Lawrence,

not free - but we use Adobe Creative Suite/Creative Cloud but I know that's not always practical for a lot of people due to the cost.

Some designers use GIMP (GNU Image Manipulation Program) or Paintshop Pro so you could look at these as an alternative.

Hope this helps,

Scott

Ah I'd forgotten about GIMP - it's a great tool and fairly comprehensive for a free one; I found it took a while for me to get to grips with it but definitely worth the time.

Thanks - I tried GIMP and it did the trick!
