I know, I know, I know..
I know that a pic is worth a 1000 words. So, how to pick the right pic for your blog? That too for FREE..
Note: All you’ve to do after downloading the free images is, giving image credit to the original source. OK, now I’ll discuss only those which are the best resources to download outstanding images.
My first choice is
This is by far the best image resource to download the free images. I usually download from here.
Here I’ll show you how to download free images from freedigitalphotos.net(lots of users get panic after looking at the “watermark” on the images, so I thought it could be a nice idea to demonstrate through a video. I’ve made it for the first time for you(in fact it’s my first attempt, so bear me :D).
Make sure to watch it on the full screen to view more clear.
So, how was the video? I know there was bit noise (chip chip chup chup’s) while making the video(do share your comments and feedback about this video, I’ll concentrate more on where I’m lagging behind, thanks in advance)
This is another image source to find stunning images.
I must say, this site has adequate no. of stunning photos from all categories. Excellent place to download quality images(most of the images you find here are free).
This is a search engine to find free images. Search your favorite keywords(for images) and download your desired results.
This site is fully loaded with the quality and large image sizes. It’s a good place to download if you use large images for your blog posts.
flickr is a great place to find creative images. But, you need to be creative to choose them ;)
Giving link back to the image source is a must. Spend some time on this site, you’ll come up with large amount of creative pictures.
Few other resources(paid and sign up required):
Most of the paid resources are also available to download the unique images. If you’re guest blogging for top blogs spend some money to buy quality and ultimate images. They worth every penny! Here are few premium sites to download the images.
If you don’t want to give any image credit and still want to use unique and free images, then the only way to go is,
Take your own images
Yeah, give some funny, naughty expressions and use them for your blog posts! After all, it’s your own blog, you can do anything. But, your images shouldn’t hurt our eyes :P (keep that in mind!)
Important: Most of the newbie bloggers use google images for their blog posts, it’s not the legitimate way to use them without giving the credit to the original source. If they find that you copied their images, they may send you legal warnings & copyright acts to remove them from your blog(they can easily find by using the tools like tinyeye, reverse image search engine method etc)
So, never go for Google images, use the above sites to download and give the image credit.
After using the images in your blog post, promote your blog in right way to get more exposure.
