Heart-Shape-Photo-CollageImages such as photos and graphics are essential add-ons to blog and social media posts.   Images are paramount in engaging with the audiences today. The power of visual content is growing and if you haven’t been adding images to your post then it is time to start.

Although I mention how important it is to add images to your blog and social media posts you should not in any way commit copyright infringement by using images on the web without permission. You can purchase royalty free stock photos to ensure you got license to use the image, but the other option is to find resources on the web that provide free images that provide you rights to use them.


List of Free Digital Photo Websites:

Another option is to find photo resources that provide free digital photos. Keep in mind that usually the free version are only available with the smaller photo size.  Typically about 400 px X 400 px.  Sometimes even smaller.

Keep in mind that paid stock photos are also mixed in with the free ones in these websites.  You just need to find what you like and look if the photo you like is free.   Also, some of these sites require registration to access their photos.  Typically, if a website offers free digital photos, you will find an option on their menu indicating ‘free photos’ or ‘free images’.

Although we try our very best to provide a list of free photo sources, it is your responsibility to confirm that in fact the photos you use from these sites remain to be free or have the creative commons license. Remember things can change with time, so it is best and important to check during the time you use the content.


I hope this post helps you find that right photo for your blog or social media post. Happy hunting!
