Searching websites such as iStockPhoto.com, Shutterstock.com and Fotolia.com is an excellent way to find stock images of ears. Such sites offer photos, illustrations, vector art and video and audio files for purchase, often royalty-free. Ear images include human and animal photos, anatomical diagrams and action images.
Websites often stamp images that are for sale with watermarks to prevent unpaid use. Users can pay for images either on demand or through a subscription to the site. Sites such as FreeDigitalPhotos.net offer many small images for free and larger images for purchase. Some sites require users to publish a source acknowledgement next to the image or pay a fee.
