Using beautiful and clean photos on your blog makes a difference.
If you are building your own website or niche blog site, using a lot of images is inevitable, and you need to be careful with what type of image you use.
You don’t want to deal with any copyright issues in the long run as you grow your digital business online. Chances of this happening are very low – but it’s better to be safe now than sorry later, right!
You need to make sure you have the rights to use any image you borrow from the world wide web on your website.
It is highly recommended that you use Royalty Free Images.
If you don’t know what royalty free means, here is the wikipedia definition;
Royalty–free, or RF, refers to the right to use copyright material or intellectual property without the need to pay royalties or license fees for each use, per each copy or volume sold or some time period of use or sales.
Important Note: Always make sure you check the copyrights of the image you want to use. When using free public domain images you should double-check the licence and terms before using it on your website.
So, where do you get these type of images online?
There are many websites where you can find royalty free images you can use on your blog.
I have gathered a long list of free stock photos sites where you will find high quality photos.
Please share this with others to spread the love.
