Where to get free images for your projects

Where to get free images for your projects

As transcribed from my YouTube video https://youtu.be/lMZEc1z2aIE

“Do you struggle to find appropriate images to use for your blog posts and your social media posts? Let’s face it, nobody wants to look at boring words when you have a post… they also love to see some pretty pictures. That’s where Instagram really flourished.

Where do you go to get these great images?

Two websites you should consider, which are free, when it comes to stock photos are Pixabay.com and Pexels.com ; Great websites where you can search for images and download them. And they’re covered by the Creative Commons license so you’re know that you’ve got these royalty free images you can use. If you wanna step it up a bit and you find a paid website that you can go to obtain some good images, the latest one that I personally use is a site called 123RF.com which stands for 1-2-3 Royalty Free. Very inexpensive. You buy credits on their system or you can get a monthly subscription. You can keyword search. They also have video clips and audio clips, as well as still images and some vector art that you can download on their website.

I highly recommend you consider these three websites as resources when looking for that next great image to compliment a post that you’re going to put out there. Let’s face it, we shouldn’t all be using just boring little thumbnails or what YouTube uses as the default generated thumbnail on a video. You should always be uploading a custom thumbnail image, or creating something using a tool like Canva in order to help you create that image. It because it really elevates the value of your post and the eye candy that it has so that people are more likely to read what you’ve posted.”
