    Hi All,

    I have been beating my head against the wall for the last few days trying to find free pictures to use to promote an affliate product. Whenever I put in royalty free or free pictures, images, or photos. There are a lot of sites out there. But, each one that I visited requires a subscription or a pay per use program. It's unbelievable. There's still a cost. So, aggravating.

    By the way, this is just on a side note. I purchased Microsoft Publisher, since I paid for Publisher, can't I use the clipart pictures to promote the affiliate product?

    I greatly would appreciate any suggestions

    Hi Showmestate,

    Royalty free pictures are those for which you pay one time fee and you can use it as many times as you want. Many stock photo sites ( like shutterstock) will charge you a subscription and you would be able to download a fixed number of photos per month (depending on your subsription plan).

    Since photos are copyrighted material, you need to contact the owner of the picture if you want to use them and see if they will let you use it for free in exchange for exposure and it would not be legal to use it without their consent. Although not many photographers will let you use their material free

    By the way what kind of photos are you looking for? I am an amateur photographer and love to help you out.
    Hope that helps.

    This might be a little off topic... However, does anyone know where the free McDonalds is?

    I really want a big mac with all the delicious flavors but I really don't want to pay for it.

    Thanks in advance!!

    Haha sounds good to me. Where do they have those for free? =]. oh and if I tear the part off that says buy one can I just get one?

    Edit: Just to show the relevancy here. Pay for your artwork, or do it yourself. Nothing in life is free.

    Have a nice day sir =].

    Ok Ok Ok, I get it. I just thought that little small happy faces and what not would be free. I'm so used to using this type of stuff for personal use (like for flyers at school and such), I didn't realize.

    But the McDonald's scenario, opened my eyes.

    Haha, I am glad it opened your eyes =]. I hope you especially liked the part about the delicious flavors included.

    If it is something that you feel should be free. It is probably pretty easy to create.

    If you are looking for a GOOD free character pack here is one http://wefunction.com/2008/11/free-character-pack/

    They basically offer it free to hook you on their services =]. This company is good.

    Happy Marketing,
