We all know the adage that a picture can say a thousand words. And that the right photo can make or break a story. That is why it is so important to use quality photos in your marketing and blogging efforts. It is great if you have a large budget and can buy Getty Images, Istock photo or Big Stock photo images. However, most bloggers and website owners have limited budgets or no budget at all. That is why it is important to know where to go to find free photos.
Here are a few of my favorite sites for free stock photos for your blog or website. Be sure and share this list with others. Spread the love and knowledge so that more people can utilize these great resources.
Here is the list:
- Pixaby Images – This is my all time favorite. The photos are superb. There is so much to choose from and the quality of the photos are outstanding.
- Unsplash images – A great free resource created by a team of talented individuals. By far, Unsplash has a fabulous collection of free high resolution photos
nsplash is a collection of free high-resolution photos and has arguably become the best source for stock images. Unsplash releases 10 new photos every 10 days and they’re released under the creative commons public domain license.
- StockSnap -StockSnap is a site with beautiful free stock photos. They add photos daily to their site. You definitely will only find high quality photos on the StockSnap site. A great feature they proudly promote on the StockSnap site is that all the photos offered on the site are released under Creative Commons – CC public domain license. This means that they do not require attribution and can therefore use the photos for commercial purposes. This is a sweet thing for bloggers that are always in need of quality photos.
- Dreamstime – Dreamstime is a multi-purpose site for bloggers and marketers. It is one of the largest collection of free & royalty-free stock photos. They offer FREE and paid stock photos, illustrations, vectors & videos.
