Articulate Rapid E-Learning Blog - over 60 free stock images here

Now that Microsoft’s quit providing free clip art and free stock images many of you are scrambling to get hold of free resources to use for your elearning and training development.

Download Free Stock Images

In a previous post I shared 45 free stock images via the Unsplash site. In today’s post I’m going to share how to get 68 free stock images via Creative Tail. They’re free for commercial use which means you can use them for your online training courses.

Since the images are free to distribute based on the CC 4.0 license, I saved a few steps by putting them in a single folder for you to download.

You can download the free stock images here.

However, since Creative Tail made the images available for free, here’s a courtesy link to their 500 image pack you can purchase.

If you’re not inclined to use the free stock images, you can always find inexpensive stock photo subscriptions.

Editing Free Stock Images

Sometimes the stock images may not appear usable. However, one way to get more use out of them is to isolate people from the original image. This gives you more usable assets because a single image can become multiple distinct assets. And even if the stock images don’t work as a main image, with a blur filter applied, they become useful ambient background images.

In either case, it never hurts to take advantage of the free assets like these free stock images while they’re available. Hopefully they’ll come in handy.

Thanks Tom.

Don’t forget to try things like changing the colour values, reshaping e.g. circles to stars, elongating, fattening (oops), adding features to the faceless ones, and so on.

Also, sometimes just fiddling around with them without actually incorporating them can give one ideas for graphics.

Someone with access to the entire thing will sooner or later surely deposit the Microsoft c.a. library somewhere on the web. Searches proving futile so far…
