Finding resources for Images, Video and Audio
Using the Internet to source your images or audio will open up millions of resources for you to use. With so many images and audio available on the Internet, finding the right one can be difficult if you are not sure what web sites to use. Below are some suggestions.
Any image or audio you find online will belong to an individual or an organisation. You cannot use any resource within your university assignments without crediting the creator. Credit is given through correct citation and referencing (see the Coventry University London reference guide for help with referencing). Outside of the education environment you have to seek the permission of the owner. It is important that you seek permission before making use of images or audio.
Many images are made available for use. With websites such as Flickr you can contact the owner directly. More commonly people only use images which are available under a Creative Commons licence which essentially states you are free to use the image as long as you stick within the rules outlined in that particular licence.
Check each site for licence or conditions of use.
