Re: [teacherartexchange] Webshots photographic images

I am a recent subscriber to this list. I currently
teach multimedia design and studio art in New York

I have three questions that I'm not sure if they have
been addressed previously on this list:

1) In addition to the resources listed in Harold's
email, are their any other sources of copy-right free
imagery on the web?

2) I just recently learned about these copy-right
resources. Prior to that, my students have been using
photos from Yahoo, Google, Corbis, and Gettyimages. I
know that this is a big no-no. With this being said,
the work that my students have created in my class has
been amazing! I would really like to share their work,
both in print and on the web, with other educators. Is
this out of the question because of the sources of
their photos?

3) Finally, what constitutes fair use anyways?
