Where To Source Royalty Free Images For Your Blog (That Don’t Suck)

Posted · 7 Comments

Thank goodness for my reader Suzzi, who not only asks me many questions that get me thinking about what  I can create for you, she also gives me ideas for posts for when I am stuck for posts or stuck to ‘fill a spot’.


I’m currently waiting for my first video in my ‘Photoshop Hacks for Bloggers’ series to upload. I promised to deliver this to you today and whoah, so many lessons have been learned in the making of this. As you know I’m always up front about what goes well and what goes… err… not so well.. so stand-by for the full post.

Feeling a little concerned about the speed of upload of the first video.. and so I want to share something with you today regardless. I went back to the questions Suzzi asked me and saw that she would like to know where to get GOOD free and ‘royalty free’ stock photos from.

This is a question many of you have and one I asked my own mentor some time ago.

With all the content on the web how do you quickly find good quality (not tacky, kitch, yucky, junior-burger) images in a single spot? Here.

You can use the photos from these sites in any way you like (eCourses, eBooks, blog posts etc) without having to attribute the photographer.

Let’s go!

    Great list. I have been looking for good websites for royalty free images. I will have to visit these sites and check them out. One thing I didn’t know until I found this article: http://www.coreldraw.com/us/pages/royalty-free-images/. Is that there are different types of image licenses; and each of those licenses associated with the individual pictures dictate what can be done with the image.
    It is definitely worth looking over. It has some great info.
    Thanks again.
