It has been proven that images can greatly enhance your content online, and help you highlight key points. A few well-placed images can make all the difference in a post but if you’re anything like me, photography isn’t a strong suit. I’ve decided to highlight a few of my favourite sources for finding photos, icons and more that you can use in your blog posts–for free!
This is my absolute favorite source for blogging photos. All of the images on Pixabay can be used free of charge but if you are so inclined, you can thank the photographer by donating a small sum, like “buying a cup of coffee.” The photos on here all look very professional, and are perfect for use on blogs.
I found this site thanks to Ashley @ Nose Graze, and I love it! It doesn’t have a whole lot of book-related images, necessarily, but there are lots of gorgeous photos that could work for discussion posts and personal posts.
3. Pure Imagination
Lori @ Pure Imagination is a blogger and designer who has plenty of lovely freebies on her website. There’s everything from social media icons, to rating scales, to holiday graphics and more! I personally got my rating scale icons from her collection, and they’re absolutely wonderful.
Although it doesn’t have very wide selection, this site does have some great images and they’re completely free. You don’t even need to download anything–just right click and choose “Save As.” It’s simple!
5. Every Stock Photo
Every Stock Photo is a search engine. You type in your keyword and the engine searches through dozens of different free stock photo websites. It can be a FANTASTIC resource, but each site has its own rules about where images can and cannot be used, so be sure to check those before using an image on your website!
I hope this helped! Where do you get images for your blog? Do you use any other sources?
