    Hi-
    Is there a place online that offers Christian images for free without watermarks.
    I really could use some inspiration on my PC.
    Thanks
    Ken

    https://pixabay.com/ - Lots of photos

    https://openclipart.org/ - lots of graphics

    Neither of these are religion specific, however the great advantage is that they are both sharing economy sites with a real focus on quality.

    As I am now also responsible for the Parish Weekly Bulletin I find myself on the endless search, and I also draw some of my own. Sometimes I will find a graphic in ordinary condition and not really good enough to use, and I will re-draw sometimes to get the idea of the image the way I want it. I normally use Xara for that task. Recently I have had a big focus on Monochrome Graphics. I have added a couple to the post if you want to use them.

    An idea: type "churches photos" into your search engine (I use duckduckgo) and save the ones you like. There are plenty of images spanning many websites, and few are watermarked. They wouldn't post the pics if they didn't want you to look at and enjoy them.... as long as you don't use them for anything else. This is not Anglican-specific, but it's inspirational.

    For example, when I did that search I came across a web page with just Iowa churches: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/iowa/beautiful-churches-ia/
    Plenty more to see....

    Also, here's a photo I took with fisheye lens of a monastery in Eagle River, Michigan. Folks can feel free to copy it for personal use if they wish.
