Where to find pictures, photographs and art-work for church use

This is a list of websites where you can find pictures, photographs and similar artworks that are suitable for church use - in slideshows, newsletters, worship aids, etc.

In particular, these websites let you find images that are low-cost, or can be used freely or for non-profit purposes, - though in some cases you must attribute the picture as requested.   This is important because copyright applies to images just the same way that it applies to lyrics and sheet music.  So if you want to use an image, you need to either:
  • Get permission from the copyright owner (which usually involves paying for the right to use it), or
  • Use a picture that is either in the public domain or belongs to someone who has given permission on a general basis (eg with a Creative Commons licence).
