10 Great Websites where you can download Free Stock Images

Written by Christopher Walkey on - Marketing -

If you are a content marketeer or even just a part time blogger on a hobby interest of yours, you will always require decent images to both compliment your blogs and to attract in the readers – For many, it is the photos and videos which really make their blogs work. So, if you haven’t the photos at hand you need, just where do you go online to get some that are both free and likely to hold the specific style of images you are after?

There are plenty of websites selling stock images, but these can be very expensive, sometimes charging £100’s per photo and if you dare ever accidentally use one of those images because say you found it on a Google image search, then they will come after you with threatening legal letters and impose heavy fines on your such as getty and alamy images who are the biggest culprits of this and are quite vulgar in their approach – Hence I never use their service and now get my images all Free!!

When it comes to marketing online, an image / photo is still one of the most powerful tools so finding the right images for your work can sometimes be challenging and especially when you are after a specific theme and quality. Below are ten great websites that will enable you to download images for free and use them on your websites plus allow you to modify them:

(Please take note re licences: Many of the photos on free image websites are free from copyright restrictions or will be licenced under the creative commons public domain which allows for using, editing and distributing of content online. Please though be aware that some photos will require accreditation / attribution so do take the time yourself to makes sure you are fully aware how the image you are going to download can be used. Also note that rules on usage will differ between personal use and business uses)
