      There are a number of ways to get images for private use (if you’re not distsributing or selling)… You can do a web search for free backgrounds or use a simple image search engine.

      Why don’t you just create the background yourself.

      A camera some photoshop (or the Gimp) and you’ll have a nice background that looks like a book

      We do a number of graduation related productions from grad nights to parties, to ceremonies to asssemblies. I all our dealings with our high school, even middle-school clients, part of our production compliance calls for access to either a comped copy, or a loaner. Often we get a copy that was not “sellable” due to imperfections, but that meets our graphics requirements with no problem.

      On the occasion that we simply cannot get ahold of a current copy of the actual school’s yearbook publication, we have often found usable yearbook prop/graphic materials are our local public, or school libraries, available for loan.

      Lastly, do a Google search for yearbook publishing companies in your area. Many of these have scads of old, out-dated, damaged or returned products sitting around their storage areas. You could get lucky and find for free exactly what you are looking for, representative of a printed publication for your video yearbook.

      If you plan to sell any of these, make sure you use royalty free images – There are many free royalty-free image sites out there (do a google search) or you can purchase libraries (Digitasl Juice has photos available in their original Editors Toolkits 1 & 2 and Presenter’s Toolkit – I don’t know if they have any of these left so you’d have to call them) or you can use some of their very nice graphics in their JuiceDrops collections (look at

      Hey Earl –

      I know it seems that way at times. I don’t work for them but have a huge stake in their products, owing over 300 of them ( I find they make my job sooooo much easier and for the money, I think they give the best value you can find. I’ve also met many of their employees who are really great folks.

      For example, I purchased all three VideoTraxx libraries before they were retired for less than $200 each – Each one has over 30 DVD’s filled with thousands of video clips I can (and have) used – In fact, I see them used on TV almost daily. They are currently clearing out their older stuff with some offerings going for as little as $3.95 each – Stuff that originally went for $99 or more!

      So while I tout them often, I think you’ll find others here who use DJ products on a regular basis.

      And as I’ve said, I cannot recommend them any more highly – especially at these prices!
