Finding Royalty Free Photos For Your Content [VIDEO]

Blog posts are great, but who cares unless their pretty too, right? The right photography complementing your content is an essential aspect to grabbing the attention of your readers. Find your ideal royalty free photos with the resources mentioned in today’s video:

PhotoPin.com — I love this site for a quick search of creative commons to find a picture that works well with my blog posts. Not only do they offer so many different options for download size, but they give you the credit embed code so all you need to do is copy paste making it a much more seamless process.

iStockPhoto.com — If you’re looking for more specific photos that are higher quality, this is a great site for that. They also offer video and music clips. But definitely keep in mind that this site is a bigger investment so buying for a blog post doesn’t make the most sense for this site.

Do you have a royalty free photo resource to share?

My favourite is 123rf.com. They have thousands of free images and just ask you to add a link to your site, which is easily done. I put a blanket credit link in the footer of my site and then just use their images everywhere - check http://usfitties.com to see what I mean.

@TheRealSJR that's a really good resource thanks! I like the idea of the blanket credit. Good thinking.

 @schmittastic  @TheRealSJR Thanks Amy. I also use Compfight on the odd occasion. It helps find Creative Commons pics from Flickr, and even gives you the credit code in HTML to save you finding the author's profile page. I stick the credit on the end of the post when I use one of those images, but otherwise all the images on the site come from 123rf. :)
