5 Free Royalty Free Stock Photo Sites


If you explored any of last Monday's websites, you probably came across a lot of posts on blogging and how important relevant images are to your post. But where do you find these images? There are scores of stock photo sites out there and plenty of them offer free images. Keep in mind that you need to find free royalty free images.

When looking for free stock photos, make sure to check the terms of use. The image may be free to use but attribution is required. Also be aware that many of the free stock photo sites also display premium images from other stock photo sites like iStock as well as search banners that belong to premium stock photo sites.

Here are 5 websites that offer free royalty free stock photos you can use for your website or blog.

Don't forget you can also create your own images. I try to create my own web graphics whenever possible. You don't have to have Photoshop to create your own graphics or edit images. On Monday June 16th, I'll be posting about author websites and blogs, including a few online sites where you can edit your images for free.
