Looking for affordable graphics to kick up your family history projects? Check out Etsy! Etsy’s shops are full of artwork and very reasonable terms of use. You’ll find original art – like the autumn leaves above – as well as graphics and beautiful reproductions of vintage art. The holiday graphics are beginning to show up and they are absolutely gorgeous.

Did you know you can upload videos to Flickr along with your photos? Not only that, but you can now download videos (if the owner permits it) too! Flickr supports video clips up to 1GB in size.
