Internet Tip: Looking For Images? Check Here

It's 7:00am. You're getting ready to give a PowerPoint presentation to a client in two hours, and just realized you really need to enhance your presentation with some graphics. But where can you find a picture of a construction site to add to that one critical slide? Or a picture of the Eiffel Tower to pitch a prospective client looking to expand overseas? Check out and bookmark http://www.ditto.com, a wonderful search engine that looks for images across the Web. Type in a key word and it returns thumbnail images with detailed information about the origin and the size of the file. Right click on the image to "Save Image As" and import it into your presentation. Or print it in hard copy on proposals. Remember though that just because images are on the Web doesn't mean that they are not copyrighted. Use your professional judgement. . .
