Finding images to use in presentations

four crayon pictures from Crestock Stock Images This is essentially a combination of parts from a couple of previous posts because people keep asking me questions about using images, image sources, and so on. It's great to use images in our communication and publicity, but they need to be used well and with integrity. Any […]

Forty minutes is a very short time to do anything other than scratch a tiny part of the vast surface which is youth culture. Anyway, […]

12 best places to get free images

Mike Williams at TechRadar.com gives a very useful roundup of his top twelve sites for sourcing free images. His focus is on images for the web, but the sites are equally useful for speakers. See my earlier post, 'Preaching with images' for other suggestions.

I thought I'd researched image libraries fairly well, but a couple of Mike Williams's suggestions are new to me. Some of his suggestions, such as Free Media Goo and Pixel Perfect Digital, are for small sites that I don't find worth my while visiting because I'm usually looking for very specific subjects, not just a nice image. I like the look of Unprofound, which is new to me, and I'm very surprised that I have no recollection of coming across OpenPhoto before. It doesn't strike me as a particularly well-designed site, but I've found enough images in various categories to persuade me to make it part of my regular hunting grounds.

The Da Vinci Code - more audio

I've now added the recordings of Wednesday evening's events at Above Bar Church, Southampton, which I shared with David Couchman of Focus. I talked about the appeal of The Da Vinci Code, its opposition to orthodox historical Christianity, the sacred feminine and goddess spirituality. David addressed three key claims in the book: that the Gnostic […]

Getting Da Vinci-ed out!

I'm beginning to feel like I've overdosed on Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code. Hardly suprising I guess since it's been such a huge bestseller since publication and especially given the amount of over-the-top hype from Sony (which is, frankly, setting people up to be disappointed with the film - all the advertising makes people […]
