Finding websites that have public domain images to use in your Glogs can be a time-consuming task. Searching for hours on Google or other search engines for websites that have images that are public domain and royalty free can be daunting. I have found that a quicker way to find public domain images is through searching Pinterest.
Searching “public domain” in the search window on Pinterest allows you to quickly find images that have been categorized or tagged as such. While this will lead you to images that have been listed as public domain, doing so doesn’t assure that the images are definitely public domain. You need to click on the image and be redirected to the original website to double-check that the image is actually a public domain image (as well as to be able to save the image to your computer.)
Searching public domain images on Pinterest can save hours of time because many of the images have already been categorized or tagged as public domain. Therefore, the accuracy of finding a website that has public domain images is much higher than searching images through search engines. Once you have found one website that has a public domain image, there is a higher likelihood that the website has other public domain images as well, which can be used on your Glogs.
