Is it a SECRET?

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams

  This is my second full day of Active Rain. (5 hours of sleep and a five year old birthday party later), I have a burning question....where in the cyber-world do you find all the great visuals  that everyone uses to enhance their posts? I have learned so much in such a short time, but I have to admit visuals draw me in! Is it a  HUGE Secret? I promise to use the power of CLIP ART  for good and not evil!  Thank you in advance to the 2,838 people on line now! Thanks!

Lisa, for your images you need to make sure the terms of use allow you to use them commercially. Iclipart does allow you to. That is who I use. It costs like 49 a year, well worth it. We also takes tons of our own photos. Taking your own photos is the best way to go. Welcome to active rain. Look up active rain community support on your search bar and get tons of help. Katerina

Welcome Lisa, and with a 5 yr old you still have time to blog?  I'm impressed.  If I don't have my own pictures, I use Google Images.  There is a spot to click on the top left of the main Google page.

You're a natural...you'll have to go see the comments on my blog about you!  Magaret Rome said you must be a sweety if you bring Cinnabons to the office!!

Anyway, I hope the Rainers have given you some food for thought!
