A few words of warning before using any free images.
Even though all the photos are free to use, without attribution, for personal, editorial, or commercial purposes, some of the sites shown in this series have stipulations that require attribution. Also for commercial use, do check with each of the free image sites that you can still use the images for free. So make sure you read the usage license every time you download an image.
