Finding images for presentations is our biggest nightmare. We have to make ppts all the time for our bosses. Where do we find images?

Answered by Meeta Malhotra

Very thorny issue. Bosses are asking for presentations with lush images and clever videos and no one is willing to pay for anything. A few tips:

  • Use creative commons to find content that is free for use, with certain conditions
  • If it’s an internal presentation, many photo libraries wil let you download images without watermarks
  • There are a ton of other free resources as well if you just look for them
  • And last, (while this seems obvious but in my experience no one does it) create a repository of images for re-use. Label and file them correctly. This will save you so much time and energy next time there is a mad deadline.
