The ActiveRain Stuff You Won't Find Anywhere Else on the Web

Where to Find and Use Graphics, Images, and Photos

Where to Find and Use Graphics, Images, and Photos

Steven Graham from ActiveRain shared some cool information about photos and images at RainCamp Atlantic City.  He's up on stage right now sharing how and where to find photos and images for FREE and how to post them on your websites and blogs.  I know that many of you couldn't be here today so I wanted to share this small segment of Day-2 with you.  These RainCamp's are loaded with tons of information and content that help every industry professional no matter what part of the industry you represent. 

In this video you'll learn where to find some free images, photos, and graphics.  You'll also learn about share and share alike photos and creative commons.  How and what is an attribution?  There's even a touch on copyright and infringement.  Now the end of the video I had to cut it off abruptly since it started to go in a direction that was out of my control. The discussion was addressing Blog title's and using long-tail keywords and I heard some certain keywords and terms, that's the point at which I decided I needed to press the stop button.  TMI.  lol~  Enjoy!

This was really helpful info.  Steve did an AMAZING job at RainCamp.  So thrilled to meet you and learn from you as well.  Super job by everyone involved.  Oh, and LOL, I can hear my voice in this video.

Posted by Debbie Gartner, The Flooring Girl & Blog Stylist -Dynamo Marketers (The Flooring Girl) about 9 years ago

Hey Brad - great to meet you finally in AC.  What an amazing collection of speakers.  I know many had their laptops up and going the whole time.  Mine crashed the night before and in some ways I am glad the disaster happened.  I was forced to focus the whole time on what everyone was saying - not being distracted by trying things on the laptop.  Fortuitous disaster for sure.  Now that I am home the experimentation begins anew!

Posted by Vance Booher (Re/Max Select, SRES) about 9 years ago

Brad - Let's see, you are writing a quick blog on your IPhone or IPad and sharing whilst at Raincamp? That is productive.

Thanks this is good needed info. Bookmarked.

Posted by Ken Barker Realtor® GRI, E-Pro Certified (Dilbeck Real Estate) about 9 years ago

Steve is a tremendous presence on the stage and was perfect for Day 2. Brad, I cannot thank you enough for the impact you made these past two days. What a special experience.

Hi Brad - I am glad that you posted some video of RainCamp so those of us who could not make it can still get value out of the content.

Hey everyone, sorry I didn't comment sooner, I just got back from Atlantic City.  RainCamp was awesome but my favorite part was getting to see many of my AR friends, and making some new friends.  I really loved the new format and want to give kudos to the entire AR gang for working so hard to make this event successful.  5 Stars to the ActiveRain team!!

I'll be back in a few, I have a ton of emails to catch up on, so I'll see ya in a bit!  Thanks for the comments, and all the love and support, it really means a lot to me and is much appreciated.

Hi Grace Keng  - is the site he was sharing at this Active RainCamp session.

If you are looking for an even larger resource for images, graphics and pics, here's a few posts I shared with even more pics, images and graphics to use.

Hope these are a useful resource for you :-)
