Mayflower: Free Stock Pictures

Finding the right picture for your flyer or ad can be time consuming and frustrating, on top of that if you do an internet search most of the times it is hard to know if a picture is protected by copyright or not. Mayflower might make your search a little easier. Mayflower is an image search engine that exclusively looks for copyright free pictures from the Wikimedia Commons.

Wikimedia Commons
is a media repository that is created and maintained not by paid-for artists, but by volunteers. Its name “Wikimedia Commons” is derived from that of the umbrella project “Wikimedia” managing all Wikimedia projects and from the plural noun “commons” as its contents are shared by different language versions and different kinds of Wikimedia projects. Thus it provides a central repository for freely licensed photographs, diagrams, animations, music, spoken text, video clips, and media of all sorts that are useful for any Wikimedia project.
