“Where can I find free images online?” is often the widely asked question by new bloggers (or seasoned bloggers). If you are one among them, this post is exclusively for you where I’m going to share few free stock photo websites to find HIGH quality images.

And the best part is, you don’t have to give any attribution or credit to the images you use. You can pretty much do anything you want with the images using these free stock photo websites.

So are you interested in finding free images? Let’s get started.

We all know, an image is worth a thousand words.

If you are blogging for a while, you would probably know the importance of using images on your blog posts or pages. Using compelling images on your posts can attract many people to click on your links.

Unfortunately finding high quality images for your websites is really hard. Either you have to pay a lot of money (up to $20 per image on sites like ShutterStock, 123Rf) etc. or you have to hire a photographer.

Luckily, there are several free stock photo websites that help you easily download high resolution images to use on your websites for free. In this post, we’ll discover few suck free stock photo sites that don’t require any attribution.

Don’t just use Google images on your websites without giving credit. Most of the beginners enter few keywords to find relevant images and they will use the images on their blogs without actually giving credit. What happens when you don’t give credit? You can even get sued.

Using random images from Google on your blogs without giving a proper credit to the author (or the photographer), can get you sued! (it happened several times on the web already). So don’t blindly use the images from Google without giving credit. Instead, use the free stock photo sharing websites to find free images to use on your blogs.

Let’s dive into the details and find out few sites for finding free images.

Final thoughts about finding free images

It’s time consuming when it comes to find free images for your blog posts. At the same time, finding free images is a headache for most bloggers (especially the beginners).

Make it a habit of adding images on your blog posts. Whenever you share a blog post on social media site, the first important thing most people notice is the image. If you don’t use any image on your posts, WordPress by default shows irrelevant thumbnails which don’t add any value.

So no one would be interested in clicking on your links. So take time to find stunning images using the free stock image websites mentioned in this guide to grab more visitors to your sites. Please let me know if you’ve any questions or suggestions related to finding free images.

Do you have any more favorite free stock photo websites to find free and high resolution images? If yes, share them in the comments and I’d be glad to add.

    Using images in blog posts is important but most of us don’t care about copyright and use any of the images we get from Google but we should look out for Free ones and use in order to stay on safer side.
