Finding Media For Your Story

Note! 50+ Ways is no longer being updated here but over at the new site for 50+ Web 2.0 Ways to Tell a Story-- It has more organizational features and includes ways for you to add content to the site once you join the new wiki.

Now here is a my rule- the media files you use in your story have to be ones that are licensed or shared with permission to re-use; this is the only way you can safely then share your new creation knowing it does not contain any copyrighted material plus it is just darn human courtesy to give credit where creation came from. So just finding a picture via Google is not satisfactory. For each media file you find, as you search, be sure to document the source by title and URL and find a person or organization to give credit.
