Ok, feministmama, here's something I was toying with, if you want something else, don't hesitate to say! I just had an idea in my head and decided to work with it...lol...If you like this, I can add your state abbreviation to the graphic as well.

Hey, Demonica. Those are great!!!!!!! Where do you find your images, like the woman? Is it Rosie the Riveter? Anyway, I want some pics like that, but I am trying to find the freebies? Have any ideas?

Yes, it is Rosie the Riveter. You have to be very, very careful not to use copyrighted photos. There are some free stock photography sites, as well as paid sites (which I think have better images) that you can obtain images from, or, you could take your own photographs, or, make them in a program like Paint Shop or Photoshop.

I, for the most part, create all my graphics to avoid any copyright infringement. However, after researching the copyright on Rosie the Riveter, I could find nothing stating it is indeed a copyrighted image. On the flip side, there is a Rosie the Riveter image done by Norman Rockwell that IS copyrighted, so you would have to get permission to use that particular image.

The best thing to do is google "free pictures" or something of the like and read all the disclaimers in regards to how the image can be used. A lot of them can be used for free for personal use but not to make money off of.

Hope that helps!

Yes, that helps a lot. If I did buy photos, which is a good site?

I don't have any personal experience with either of these sites, these are just the 2 I'm most familiar with:
