I Am Searching For a Public Domain Image of Bill Clinton

I am searching for a public domain image of President Bill Clinton.

This is going to be used in a television show, so I need insure I have

the right to use the photograph. I do not want to pay extra for the

photo, but I do not mind crediting the photographer. So I need the

photo, and a link to copyright information of the photograph showing

that it is in the public domain, and that it can be used for such a

project. Thanks in advance!

I am looking for other pictures as well, please check my other questions!

  1. Dear glasscelloagain,

    Please use this link to download the official White House portrait [1]

    of Bill Clinton (size 2299 x 3000 pixels, 2.3 MB, color):

    http://www.dodmedia.osd.mil/Assets/1993/DoD/DD-SC-93-04622.JPEG

    As the official presidential portrait, that image is a work of an

    employee of the Executive Office of the President of the United

    States, taken during the course of the person's official duties. As a

    work of the U.S. Federal Government, the image is automatically in the

    public domain.

    The same official portrait is also available in black-and-white [2],

    in two versions:

    – Medium resolution JPEG file, 97 kB

    http://memory.loc.gov/service/pnp/cph/3c00000/3c07000/3c07700/3c07700v.jpg

    – High resolution uncompressed TIFF file, 12 MB

    http://memory.loc.gov/master/pnp/cph/3c00000/3c07000/3c07700/3c07700u.tif

    I hope that this is what you were looking for!

  2. Hi Scriptor, is there a statement somewhere that says the image is

    public domain and covers the use in television?

    Thanks.
