Wondering if there are any high quality, high res images of eukaryotic cells or bacteria on the web available for download (public domain). I found some illustrations which are public domain, they look nice, but they are illustrations. I would like to find SEM electron micrograph images or things of that nature, microscope images in the public domain.

Here is an SEM image that is somewhat acceptable, though it has the legend built into the image and isn't colorized (colorization would be a bonus). Here is a colorized image.

This is more the quality I am looking for.

This is decent, but it's not public domain.

These are great!

I wish some of these were public domain.

  • $\begingroup$ What do you want to do with them? Is it commercial use as suggested by your attitude to a CC image? Nobody ca stop you downloading for private use unless they are watermarked. $\endgroup$ – David Jun 3 '19 at 18:23

  • $\begingroup$ Then — and in any case — this doesn’t appear to be a question about biology in the terms of SE Biology, I’m afraid. $\endgroup$ – David Jun 3 '19 at 19:37
