Unsure if I’m in the minority,  part of my leatherwork is laser engraving however I’m consistently seeking value for money (or free) web sources to improve images etc.

ideally none that are linked to spam etc would help.

Images with no copyright ? ( all images, everywhere ( despite what many people and search engines think ) are copyright automatically unless the artist themselves says that they are releasing them as copyright free )..there is clipart.

For anyone reading.."I found it on the web" doesn't make it legal ..or moral...unless the artist says to you in writing, that you can use it..you cannot ..artists cannot take " credited to" to the supermarket to buy groceries, nor to pay the rent or mortgage...none of us work for free.

Yes..my main business for the last 45 years has been creating and selling my images/ designs.

Thanks for the reply, and yes understandable reference the copyright issue and looking at alternative sources other than my manufacturers recommendations.

Clipart is another option although purchasing a digital catalogue for my SD card is my overall aim.

By using the Google Advanced Image Search, images free of licensing requirements can be found, just look under "Usage Rights" towards the bottom of the page. The images may be fewer than in a normal image search, but do exist.

Much appreciated, the more options the better.

i've no problem purchasing the specific digital images catalogue it's just narrowing the focus of where to initially source them in the first place.
