Free Blog Image Sources

I have to admit I am not a great photographer. My images are often out of focus, not straight and half the time I forget to charge my camera battery in the first place.

So where can you find images for your blog for free? And that are often copyright free, so you don`t have to even give attribution or credit (unless you want to)

The first site I found was Wikipedia.org. They are great for celebrity images, images for cities and brand logos.

The next site I found was FreeRangeStock. They have a fairly good selection of searchable images - all for free. You just have to sign up for their site (free) and put in a password everytime you download an image.

Flickr actually has a vary wide variety of photos. Just search any topic you want and change the License to Creative Commons Only to find images that are free to use. You may have to read each individuals terms to find if they require attribution, a link or their personal requirements.

FreeImages.com has a good source of searchable images including several simple (white background) images of food, as well as vectors, backgrounds and more. They require you to sign-up for downloading.

Possibly my new favourite, Pixabay has a really large selection of free images for download, without even requiring you to sign up. Only captcha required for download.

Morgue File   has gorgeous images free for download and are all searchable. No membership required.

Picography also has beautiful pictures but doesn`t have the largest selection.

I also love all the amazing photos from Unsplash.com They add 10 new ones every 10 days. But it`s too bad you can`t search them....

I also recently found PixClicx by Jill Levenhagen and her styled stock photos are gorgeous!
