Zazzle How-To: Getting and Using Images
Thank you! We appreciate your interest in what we have to share about making money with Zazzle. Periodically, we'll be emailing exclusive information to this list and we're glad you're on it!

This time, our topic is where to get free images you can use in making your Zazzle products.

Those of us who are not "artists" know the difficulty of finding free commercially-licensed images. Our eBook More Products, Less Time lists a good many resources.

New to the free image resource list: WeGraphics.

WeGraphics has many quality free images you can use in your Zazzle Shop. Vector graphics, patterns, brushes and more. Plus, their license agreement states in plain English that you can use their images to make products. (Be sure to read it yourself).

Here is a personalized shirt we made from one of their free vintage sign vectors. It sold within 24 hours!

WeGraphics also has a great many images for sale at very reasonable prices. Or you can get unlimited access to all their images for as little as $7. That's what got us in the door. After giving it some thought and looking through all the image collections, we chose a one-year non-renewing membership for $69. With a year of access, we won't have to rush downloading images. There are so many!

Image sourcing is challenging and complicated. Sara Jane Bennet's very comprehensive new eBook, Public Domain Images on the Web, breaks through the legalese of licensing and also provides a list of free images sites. See the description at right.
 
Quick Tip: Know your image file types and their characteristics. We recently had a question on How To Make Money Online with Zazzle's Facebook page about shortening the length of time it takes to convert a JPG into a BMP. BMP files aren't as high quality, so why the conversion in the first place? Give Zazzle the best quality image you can in order to keep the production and customer service levels as high as possible. Click here for a great tutorial on images. Check out what they say about using BMP files!

As entrepreneurs, we believe the keys to happiness are travel, simplicity and freedom. We began "Zazzling" in 2008 and achieved ProSeller that same year. Our online businesses have grown to include several Zazzle stores with nearly 60,000 products, shops on CafePress, a RedBubble site, plus a growing roster of eBooks and web sites. All this has enabled us to relocate from Minnesota to the Garden Island of Kauai in Hawaii.
