Sara Jane Bennetabout this book: Public Domain Images on the Web is an extremely helpful eBook for properly using images in commercial and noncommercial projects. When I started out in a print-on-demand web site (like zazzle.com or cafepress.com) I had a difficult time finding images that I could legally use in my designs. I was also very confused about copyright and trademark laws. I spent many hours reading and understanding the intricacies of these complicated laws. I also developed a list of web sites that offer public domain (free for any use) and Creative Commons licensed (use with restrictions) images. In this eBook I introduce you to the basics of copyrights and how to recognize if you can use an image for your project. I give links to other resources to learn more about this complicated yet important subject.
This information alone would be worth the price of the book. But in addition, this book provides reviews for 34 web sites that offer public domain and Creative Commons licensed images, including photographs and vectors. And there are also additional links to many other images sites. The cover of this book is made up entirely of public domain or Creative Commons licensed images and was designed by the author.
This helpful eBook would be invaluable to:
• Web site owners
• Web site designers
• E-book authors
• Print authors
• Graphic design students
