A picture is worth a thousand words.
Images have always been an integral part of your website or blog. And searching for high quality stock photos for your blog has always been a pain. You may get thousands of stock photos on the web but they are either paid or have copyrights. Risking your business for a free photo is foolishness.
However, now there are many websites which provide high quality photos for FREE. Photos provided by these websites are not only free but also beautiful. They come free to use, modify and most of all use commercially license and that’s what makes your day.
Bonus Tip: If you want to use any image without modification which from any source without any free license, just mention the source of the image and link it back to original website. This saves you from a lot of legal hassle.
Coming back to the topic, honestly speaking I’ve also faced this issue. After going through these situation, I thought of making your life a little bit easier by sharing a list of websites where you can find FREE Stock photos.
