10 Awesome Places To Get Free Images For Your Blog

Fresh%20Red%20Chili%20Pepper.jpgWhat are the best websites that offer free stock images?  I want to suggest 10 good resources for you.  Stick free images in your blog posts to spice 'em up.

1. Stock.xchng - Tons of copyright-free images.

2. Flickr - Probably the best-designed photo sharing site.  Owned by Yahoo!

3. Webshots - Bazillions of user-submitted photos.

4. EveryStockPhoto - A fine search engine scouring the Web for free stock images.

5. Fotki - A popular photo sharing community.

 

6. Fotolog - A photo sharing site with an international focus.

7. Fotologue - A Japanese image sharing site.

8. StockVault - A big vault of free images.

9. Riya - An excellent image search engine.

10. Yotophoto - An image search engine devoted to free images and photos.

11. eConsultant - Has lots of links to free photo sharing sites. Updated regularly.

12. Categoriz - Has a bunch more links to image sharing sites. Also updated regularly.

In my opinion, nothing beats Google Images for quick photos. Easy, fast and almost always accurate to my search description.

Good topic, Easton.

For some reason, I'm convinced that this isn't "cool" but I most frequently use Microsoft's clip art for my blog. So uncool.

Aha! Why didn't I think of that? Thanks Dan. I really like the creative images you use at Landing The Deal.

Weather Underground has some really great pics, and often the photographer is pro-standard! All their pics though are directly or indirectly weather-related.

Thanks for these links, Easton! I'm using MorgueFile for my blogs. Their photos are good, too.

This is a great list Easton. I usually get mine for under $5 through iStockPhoto or I make them myself, but I may need to start using some from this list instead.

Both great links - thanks, Meikah and Char.

Hi Easton, I love the tips I find here on your site.

You have done well to launch Bizzbites today and I want to thank you for your part.

Just a few minutes ago, I signed in and wanted to take a bite of Ellen Weber's entry in the News slot. There might be some kind of problem, because though I joined and am a member it would not count my bite when I clicked and I tried several times. I thought if I let you know that you could fix. Thanks for all you do. You're a real asset to the blogging community.

Here's a couple more:

Thanks for the leads... these are great I primarily have gone to Flickr... which so far I still think far and away's the best one.

We'll look into it Robyn. Thanks Mary Jo and GP for stopping by.

Yeah, but don't forget that many Flickr User have switched form the CC licence to normal copyrights.

True, Don. Sometimes I go to Flickr for ideas and then to some of the other sites to get copyright-free photos based on what I find at Flickr.

Hope you don't mind me adding a link to my web site:
