Life can sure get hectic and sometimes as a blogger you may not have the time or even the photography skills necessary to take stunning, high-quality photos for your blog. We all know (or should know) that swiping images off Google is a big no-no and could result in copyright violations. You can always purchase high-quality images from places like Creative Market, Istock Photo, or Getty Images, but that can empty your pocketbook in a jiffy. So today we wanted to share with you the 4 best places to find free photos for your blog – legally.
In no particular order, here we go:
Unsplash is chuck-full of stunning high-resolution images. These images are free to download and you can do whatever you want with them. You can peruse all of their gorgeous photos or you can narrow your search by category. Ten new photos are added every ten days.
Death to the Stock
Death to the Stock delivers 10 lifestyle styled images to your inbox each month. I get giddy with excitement each time they come and you will too! Their images are usually more vintage styled photos of coffee shops, lake front scenes, casual apartment shots, etc. Signing up for their emails is such a great way to keep a library of killer photos for future use. Make sure to review their license before signing up.
Pixabay gives you access to absolutely free vectors, drawings and photos. The site is organized nicely and makes things super easy to find. You can use any of their images without attribution in digital and printed form. Be sure to review their terms before using their images.
MorgueFile has photos contributed by artists who are willing to let you use their work for free. Attribution isn’t even required! MorgueFile features mostly outdoor scenes and stunning shots of animals but you really can find photos of just about anything on there. Be sure to use the search bar to narrow your results.
