Top Websites to Find Free Images for Your Blog

Copyright restrictions can make the process of finding pictures online for your blog a daunting task. It’s important to yourself with basic copyright knowledge and be stringent when choosing photos, taking all precautions to ensure permission to use a particular photo is granted. Luckily, there are a few reputable websites that offer images free of use, but it’s still important to add attribution when provided and follow all copyright and creative commons requirements.


You get a wide range of photos to choose from, but be careful to check the licensing requirements, because they differ from photo to photo. On FreeImages you can also pay for photos, and remember, always add attributions when necessary.


Flickr is rising in popularity, offering a wide range of images for free use- just be sure to search using the creative commons license.


This one is personal favorite, is easy to use and has a wide variety of high quality public domain images up for use, without needing attribution to the source.


Choose from thousands of free photos, as long as attribution and a link back to the source is added. A watermark is added to the lower right hand corner of each photo when used, but it isn’t obnoxious, and plus- the image is free, right?
