Yesterday I introduced the concept of dedicated hosting, and today I’ll list a few sites where you can find free images. Don’t forget to credit the site you got the image from.
The expression goes “A picture is worth a thousand words”, and it’s nice to have images to make your site or post more interesting. However, not all of us want to have to pay for using images or happen to have the right photos already available!
Sites that offer free images:
- Free Images. The name pretty much says it all. Images are sorted by category and they offer everything from architecture to outdoor activities.
- Public Domain Archive. Free vintage and modern images – everything from salt shakers to the Eiffel Tower!
- Wikimedia Commons.This is a large library of images, audio, and video files that can be freely used.
- Unsplash. Describes itself as “Beautiful free photos. Gifted by the world’s most generous community of photographers”.
I’ve put a photo of a cute piglet below (just because I really like them) with credit.
