Free online web site image use.  Do you want to use my images on your website legally and free of charge?  This category is only for online web site owners and webmasters who are willing to follow specific photo credit and linking requirements including a 100% clickable link and clearly visible text string directly under each picture used.  If you are unable to do this, please go to the category above.  This free category does not apply to printed documents, eBooks, or other non web ite uses.   If you are interested please read more HERE.
