Snappy Saturday #01

Each Saturday, I’ll post a free image for anyone to use on their website, blog, book cover, trailer…whatever. It is non-exclusive, and everyone can use it freely. All I ask is that you link back to my website if you use it on the Internet, giving me (Diane Lynn Tibert at credit.

You are welcome to leave a link to the page on your website where you used the image in the comment section below.

I’ll gather free images on their own page, so they’ll be easy to find.

Today’s free image is a weeping willow overhanging a pond. Similar and exclusive images of willows, ponds, bull rushes and ducks are found on the Pond page .

Click the image to see a larger view. To save the larger image to your hard drive, right click, and chose save image as.

    • Thanks, Deborah. For several months now I’ve been reading about how hard it is for self-published writers to find an exclusive image, one that won’t show up on ten other book covers. I’ve also heard about the restrictions many stock photo companies put on their images. Often they’ll sell an image for $80 that you can use on your book cover and website, but if you want to put that image on a bookmarks, poster or T-shirt to promote your book, you have to pay extra. They can also place limits on how many times the image can be used. In other words, pay extra to make bookmarks, but you can only make 5,000 bookmarks.

      Once an image is purchase from me, the buyer can use it however they want without limits. And they don’t have to worry about seeing the same image somewhere else. I began uploading images a few days ago, so there’s only 100 online so far.
