It is becoming increasingly more important to include images with your blog posts. If you have a desire to add images to your blog posts, here are 5 sources where you can get free images.
- Creative Commons – Creative Commons is a library of media that includes images, videos, and more. Creative Commons licenses fall into several categories. You can often find images that offer users licenses that don’t require attribution or that can be used for commercial purposes. Be sure to read the terms for each image you want to use.
- Zemanta – Zemanta is a WordPress plugin that searches for related images as you write your blog posts. You have to read the images licenses for each image. Sometimes they include images that are not for commercial use or in the public domain.
- unprofound – unprofound in a non-profit website where all images are free. You don’t have to ask permission or even register for the site.
- Take them yourself – If none of these options appeal to you, you can always take your own photos and use them. You might even share them on Flickr or sell them for use on photo sharing sites and make a little extra money.
