There are several stock photo websites that you can use to get images to illustrate your blog posts. I’d like to share with you my list of sites where you can easily find and use photos for your blog.
Where to Find Photos for your Blog?
There are in the list Free and Paid stock photos sites. The price for the right to use a photo on a blog is very cheap, $1 or $2 for most of them. If the photos are free for you to use, there is a requirement to credit the photographer with a link back to his website or portfolio. In either case, check out the license terms for the photos you want to use.
Your complete creative resource, with millions of images, vectors, videos and audio files you can’t get from the other guys.
