You can download a picture without becoming a registered user (registration is free!), but you will have to insert a captcha every time you try to download an image. Registered users do not have to enter a captcha for each download.

Choose "Labeled for noncommercial reuse with modification" to use this image on your classroom website or in your lesson presentation.
