    For a summer projecet, I'm creating a website on vintage macs, with articles, a photo collection, cool stuff, etc. If anyone has pictures of their old macs that I can use, I'd appreciate it. I need pictures of any old macs, for the collections section. I'm trying to get pictures of every old mac ever made, and some pics with multiple machines. I'd also like pics/scans of vintage advirtisements, ads, cool items etc.

    Anway, if anyone can post pics, I could really use them. They would be hosted on my website, and you'll get credit under each picture for them. You can also have an option of writing a little caption for the picture and I'll add that also.

    I'd love it if you could help!

    This Danamania person has good pictures in his Wiki gallery. Perhaps you should contact him.

    wow those pictures are REALLY nice!

    I can't figure out how to contact him, as when I click on his user name, it just says no page for this user has been found. It seems like the website is free for using images, as long as you give credit to the name.

    Well does anyone else have any pics?

    I got quite a few IIci/IICx/mac SE pics already, but could still use a lot more!

    are those your pics? I don't want to run into any copyright issues. If they are yours, I'd love to use them! I'll send you a website preview so you can say if it looks nice before It goes online.

    P.S. Dana is a female.

    And she occasionally posts on here (the MacRumors Forums,) although her profile says she hasn't been here since February.

    And, if something is posted to Wikimedia commons, it will say what it's license terms are. Most pictures there are licensed free for non-commercial use, with attribution. (i.e. you must say where you got the photo, and it can't be used for any money-making purpose.) Danamania's all use the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike license, meaning you can do whatever you want, as long as you credit her, and if you make a derivative work (i.e. edit the picture,) you have to use the same license.

    Finally, don't just look in Danamania's gallery, but in all of the Wikimedia Commons' Apple Macintosh category. There are LOTS of good photos in there, some that look like professionally-shot PR shots.

    Finally, if you want 'collection' type shots, my collection is available. (It's not on that page yet, but it also uses the Attribution-ShareAlike license.)

    Whoops, try my edited link now. I forgot to add .html to the end. (I've gone ahead and edited my quote of your link, too. :-D )

    very nice collection! Your color classic looks practically mint! Nice, do I see a mac II also?

    so would you mind if I used a pic or two for the 68k section of my new website? I'll most certainly give you credit for the pictures :D

    Go right ahead.

    Yeah, a Mac II, and a IIfx (both ends of the 'big case' family,) and the Color's case is mint, but it's motherboard is a bit flaky, so I replaced it with a Colo(u)r Classic II motherboard. (A real CC2 mobo, not a modded LCwhatever mobo.) It screams now. It still has its QuickTime sticker, and with the new motherboard, it can actually play QT movies decently well.

    The site seems to have some goofy quirks... most noteably that I only see about 20 Macs altogether, plus two goldfinches. Are those under the iBird category? :p

    You were featured in MacFormat!

    I remember the TAM in your bedroom setup.

    That was my first issue actually.

    Rich.
