Are you a website owner? Or maybe you have a personal or business blog? If the answer is yes, then you probably know that every blog post and any type of content you share on your blog/website looks much more interesting when there is a photo/image in it. But, do you know where you can get free stock photos for your website? The answer to this question is not simple, but in order to keep things simple, we will suggest the most convenient option – using websites which provide free images. In other words, there are websites that are offering completely free stock photos to their visitors. Instead of paying a high amount of money for a single photo, you can use high-quality free photos.
The list of websites where you can find imagery like this is long. The most used websites of this kind are Pixabay, Pexels, PixaOcean, Freepik, Death to Stock Photos, Im Free and Flickr. Some of these websites are offering both free and paid stock photos. The best idea is to read their terms and conditions carefully before downloading and using any of these photos.
There are many people who are wondering why these websites are offering images for free. Well, the reason is simple – they are getting a lot of traffic and they can display ads to compensate the expenses for running these websites. Some of them are involved in affiliate marketing too. How they are making money should not be our concern because we are getting free stock photos that we can use anywhere we want. Banners, blogs, websites, social media – these are just some of the places where we can use free photos downloaded from these websites.
Although we are talking about free photos, it’s worth mentioning that most of them come with certain limitations. For instance, most authors don’t allow their photos to be used on adult, gambling or pharmaceutical websites. Needless to say, they also don’t want their free photos to be used for illegal activities. Some of these photos are free only for personal use, but not for commercial use. This means that if you are making money through your website/blog, you will probably have to look for paid stock photos or free stock photos without any limitations.
There are many reasons why people should use photos on their website – from driving more traffic to improving the visual appearance of your website. If you are planning on using photos, try free stock photos first.
