Now that you have your blog up and running I want to show you where you can get images for you new blog posts.
We all love free website images, don’t we? Just type something into Google and click images and you then have hundreds if not thousands of photos at your disposal. Wait! Did you know if you did this and added those pictures you just found to your website you could end up with a lawsuit on your hands when the owners of the photos find out you used them.
The photos on Google are not free and you could be infringing copyright laws by using them. So where do you find free images to spruce up your blog posts? Read on.
Pixabay is a good place to find royalty free CC-0 Licensed images, just go to pixabay.com and you will have access to 10,000+ free images. These are sorted into category and tags, there is also an advanced search feature pictured below where you can search by size, colour, orientation.
Unsplash is another well-known destination to go for high quality royalty free, CC-0 Licensed, and public domain photos.

Here are a few other sites you may want to go, to see if you can find what you are looking for.
Just remember that content you get from “royalty free” websites is not free to take. You need to read the permissions for each image that you use, as each one will have different rules.
That should keep you busy for a couple of hours, as you can see from the photos on this post there are some pretty amazing free images out there. Now you know where to look. Leave a comment below if you found this post helpful.
